The Octagon Bar: Kickin' It Old School in the Clarence Hotel, Hot Tubs Included!

Give'r!

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!


The above is Tim's original welcome message from the oldest of the old Bars. It's time to restore the Bar to its original drinkin' and hookin'-up glory!

:: sits down daintily at bar, mixes self a Sex on the Beach, waits for Ewen to show up ::

Awesome. I didn't really know the history of this bar so thanks for clearing it up Pax!

Mixes herself a blue bahama and puts on "Elevation" on the jukebox...

** Takes a long look at the front door as a wave of nostalgia washes over me, pushes open the door and hears the beginning notes of "I Will Follow" and smells stale beer, leather couches and chlorine? **

Hi Honey I'm home! Hey Ewen, you're the reason I smell chlorine. Nice to see the hot tub again

** Plops down on the couch for a few minutes before the business meeting **

You know... I'd be here more if it continued to tickle my creativity, but chat threads are so early-2005

** Throws feet up on the ottoman points iPod remote at the stereo and The Postal Service's "The District Sleeps Tonight **

Hey Pax! Thanks for dusting this off and going old-school! Awww Yeah...

** Takes a sip of coffee, closes eyes and flashes back to all the wonderful times I've had here **

Yeah, you should invite His Squashness to swing by!

Yes, Tim, we decided to swing the Bar back to its original direction. We hope the restoration means you'll be back behind the bar more often.

And what would the old Bar be without a hot tub? Or seventeen?
















and a couple in love to fill it?

** Unfolds self from the couch, walks behind the bar, cracks knuckles and places a sign on the bar. "The bartender is in" **

Choose your poison
