The George is not just any bar or any gay bar. It is the first port of call for young gay people in Ireland, it is the venue where gay and straight people mix together and where international visitors stop to check out the gay scene in Ireland. The George has been the lynchpin that holds Dublin's gay scene together. Having been around for 25 years it has been a home to the development of the social evolution of gay Ireland.
"A mix of styles with a sprinkling of fairy dust thrown in", The George features two bar areas; the front bar affectionately known as ‘Bridies' after one of the bar's longest serving staff members; with its low lighting and velvet clad barstools is the perfect spot for a quiet drink and a chat. The main club venue has been graced by the presence of some of the hottest international acts including Alexandra Burke, Daniel Johnson, The Saturdays and Bananarama. It is also where you can see some of the best weekly performances in the city Space'N'Veda, Davina's House-Party and featuring International Cabaret Artiste Extraordinaire TM and former child-star Shirley Temple Bar at Sunday night Bingo!
The George was most recently owned by Capital Bars Group and last year it went into receivership - Pearse Farrell from Farrell Grant Sparks is the receiver. He appointed a team of industry experts to put a successful operational programme in place to ensure that the club is reaching its full potential and is as successful as possible. A new creative programme has been put in place, the doors are being given a fresh lick of paint and a new gay customer is coming in (and out) each day!
