The Octagon Bar: I Want a U2 fan Boyfriend / Girlfriend

Welcome weary travelers!

We've been kicked around the corner, we've been known by different names but it's time to reopen the Octagon Bar!

...Stop in for a coffee or tea in the morning, bring your newspaper and sit in our soft leather couches. For lunch, come in and have a cocktail. Your boss will never know. When work is over, stop in for Happy Hour; you can be assured that your presence will not go unnoticed. Late nights are the best and the most wicked; the patrons are a frisky lot, but always friendly.

The Octagon Bar is located on the first floor of the Clarence Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. U2 are part owners of this magnificent watering hole and we seek to reproduce the camaraderie of a pub, complete with bar fights, dancing girls, and moderators who shut us down when the noise or the post count gets too high.

May I suggest that you order a drink, ask one of the lovelies or one of the gents for a , or perhaps you want to play a song on the jukebox. Share pictures of your kids and yourselves. Don’t be shy--by morning we’ll forget your face anyway.

This is a patron-run bar, so if the bartender is asleep in the back, or cuddled up on the couch with one of the patrons, go and pour a drink for your mate. The drink selection is only limited by your imagination. So dream out loud!


--------------
When this place opened it's doors with a shout on October 22nd, 2004, who knew that it would continue?

Within hours the cries for U2 fan boyfriends and U2 fan girlfriends spawned some matchmaking and netted me a fiance... So come on in, post a picture, tell us who you are, and tell us what you'd like to drink. Don't be shy. We aren't!
---------------
I forgot to give you a roadmap down memory lane: Enjoy!

We're a lot of things, but shy ain't one of them.

Lord, this really is old-school. Harkens back to the Octagon's roots as a singles bar...

This is SUPER old school.
