The Octagon Bar: Where Everybody Knows Your Name!

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!

:: mixes up a fresh pitcher of sangrias to take over to brand-new, already-water-filled hot tub ::

Back in, then?

*Sips on a SoCo & Sour*

My little brother is in town for a week. I've got to figure out a cool place to take him...

Bring him to the bar. We'd love to meet him.

Seriously, has he been to San Fran frequently?

I took him there last time (though there's plenty to see).

Keep in mind he's only 15, so the options are limited.

Hope my hot tub partner hasn't given up on me...

I've only been to your area twice, but I felt like I saw a lot of things while there. If your brother is from nearby it probably won't be as new and cool as it is to someone from the East Coast.

When I go to a big city I like to go record shopping. So Amoeba records near Haight & Ashbury is the largest and finest Record Store I've ever been to. Plus the culture is fascinating to watch.

Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and stop in Sausolito. That is a really cool place.

Alcatraz

China Town for authentic Chinese Food

Let him test drive your car down Lombard street. Don't get caught!

Go to the Wharf

See a baseball game. You have 2 major league teams.

Take a ride on the Trolley

Get some Ghiradelli's Chocolate

Hope this makes you think of something:
