Clubs, Dublin: 61 reviews and 33 photos

Leeson Street
This street is full of night clubs. Closing time around 4pm. You don't pay into the clubs but expect to pay over the odds for a bottle of wine. Most of them only have wine licences. Some of the clubs are fun to visit with a group, stay clear if your on your own especially if your a woman they do have a name as pick up joints. Taxi drivers call the street "My wife does not understand me " because of all the married men who frequent the strip. Jeans and runners are not the thing to wear...
Off St Stephens Green.

Lillie's Bordello
This is very popular if your a rich rock star or famous model. Getting into Lillies is hard unless your a local which of course you can't be since you only arrived in the country a few hours ago. Try your luck , but this club is nothing special. Mind the bouncers.. they do hit out and one unfortunate person took the club to court when the bouncer sliced into him for no reason except to ask why he was being refused. By the way he won the case and the bouncer was fired.
Off Grafton Street

Again this is a club for the rich and famous. They have two floors one for the mere mortals and the other for the VIP's. Personally the ground level is a lot better with a lot more craic. Upstairs if your manage to get pass the bouners, is dark and boring.
South Fredrick Street. NOW CLOSED DUE TO THE RECESSION. 2010

POD / The Red Box
A very young set go to the POD. You have got to be stylish to get in here as that is as important as age, so l am told. Thursday night hosts a no frills night so you can dance the night away without worrying about what your clothes look like. They also have gay nights, check for listings in the free newspapers.
Harcourt Street

Again a very young and mixed crowd, loud music and lots of fun. Bouncers on the door so have ID ready if you don't look your age. They also have a gay night, again check the free newspapers.
South Great George's Street.

Dress Code: Most of these clubs will not allow entry if your wearing sneekers.
