The Octagon Bar-The rum's not gone here!

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!

--Tim (starsforu2)

Give'r!

mmmm, good one Merc!


Okay folks...your mission, if you should accept it, is to get through this Octagon Bar within a day! Six months ain't good enough. Are you up for the challenge Meeesturrr Bond?

I am trying to write a Masters here ( ), but I'll try and check in here as often as I can during the day then... right now I'm not feeling all that inspired to write anything

**Grabs a bowl of Weetabix and a cup of tea while Ewen is playing around with the forklift**

No, not yet...

That's why I'm interested in what the place looks like from your p.o.w.
