The Octagon Bar: Post-Holiday Sleepy Monday Edition

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!

Darren, that means we can have a decent night's sleep here without missing any news (if you want 'spoilers') - since it'll be roughly 6am (our time) when the show kicks off.

I think we need to have a No Spoilers note in every bar from here on out, what do you say Abby?


Some people kind of forget that sorta thing when they post around here.


Good morning. It's going to be 54 degrees today so I'm going to to go out for a walk - with just a light jacket on! - in a bit.

I'm with you on that April. In fact I'd go further and say that I'd wish that most talk of U2 was kept out of the Octagon - just like the "It's Official" forum. Just because I feel that there are hundreds of places / threads that we can discuss U2 so why bring it in here.

Well, the U2 content is inevitable to some extent, but I do agree that we should avoid spoilers in the Bar if at all possible.

I'm not in a policy-setting state of mind today, so I hope my endorsement of no-spoilers is strong enough for everyone.

Now would someone bring over a couple of lovely sangrias to the hammock here? I bar-wenched most of last week and I'm all cuddled up with Ewen here...I do NOT feel like getting up.
