The Octagon Bar: We're Still Waiting for the T-Shirts

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!

Just leaving my mark on a brand spanking new bar

Way to end the other bar on a sour note, abby

Good name, lol.


I'm currently sitting with a soon to be 5 year old perched on a chair next to me. It's my friend's daughter and she's eating apple sours and watching me work.

I could NOT think of a name for this new Bar. I was like, "Come on, someone, anything..."

Based on U2Dem's Frustration with Math, It could have been

"The Octagon Bar: We Hate Math, thus the drinks are free"

I kept resisting the urge to say that, Ewen. I'm glad you did it for me.

I have over 9000 posts now.

I hit 5000 sometime around New Year's.

I have a vivid image of fat bastard in my head right now

*pulls out her banana bread recipe and stares at it*
To try or not to try
If I fail
Ill try...not to cry
Oh why
Oh why
Must my mother have kicked me out of the kitchen while I was growing up
