Euphoria : New Dublin Gay Club

I do agree that this night seems like a carbon copy of other nights on the scene. For some reason I am getting a Mother type vibe off it but I could be wrong. The night might very well fail, who knows but seeing it getting slated by the usual people before it has even started is beginning to get boring and predictable.

That R.I.P night tried something new with live music but it still didn't survive despite the reasons you mentioned. The monthly Bear night that happens in either Nealons or Pantibar tends to cover the leather fetish night to a small degree.

Maybe the Dublin gay scene is too small to have a wider variety of club nights?

I'm not sure why RIP never came back. I was at the last couple and they were hopping. Maybe the promotors just lost interest or there were venue issues. But it wasn't for lack of popularity.

The Dublin scene is by no means huge. But that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a bit of variety. Both Mother and Sunday Social offered something a little different, both in small venues and both were/are successful.

The thing that will just not survive in the Dublin scene is a night that's only replicating what's available already. Variety is the way forward.

Personally I don't see any problem with criticising a night that is clearly 'more of the same.' Especially since I feel that the 'more of the same' attitude from some promotors is more than a little bit patronising.

'Oh the gays will lap this up because there are gogo dancers.' It's just like that new 'gay bar' that opened for one night a few months back. We don't all want the same shite, thanks very much.

Venue issues tend to play a problem too. F.A.G was one of my favourite nights on the scene but it stopped soon after it left ALT. I'm hoping that night makes a comeback. Never went to RIP but from what you're saying it seemed like a good night. Personally I think the most successful night on the scene at the moment is Mother. Cormac seems to have captured that niche of the market and now has probably the most popular night.

We could sit here all day debating what may or may not work to have a successful and different club night but I think what most people want is to have a club night that is opening until 6am.

I was looking for an explanation from you.

It was a satirical post on how we got rid of the common gay from wildes under the guise of turning it into a straight club, turning it into a club for the truly super Elite....me.
Why slate a night before it has even begun?

Because I would never dare to associate with beer heads and trainer wearers.
There are enough of 'those' type of clubs.
I demand more.

I would like a solid gold club for me and my friends. None of this gold coloured vinyl shite.

Do you know the dame tavern, or Cassidys?
I think the gay scene would benefit from having regular pubs like that.
Nothing OTT, no Go-Go dancers or Drag Queens or semi naked bar men or disco balls or Theme nights.
Somewhere people can go and have a pint and a chat.

Something more along the lines of Jurassic, or the piano bar that used to be on Parliament street, but more along the lines of an old Irish pub.

Somewhere quiet, where people who dont need (or want) the traditional gay bar in your face, tacky stuff.

Thats the sort of venue that I think is missing from the scene.

That or a solid gold club.

Centre Stage it was called. It's sorely missed from the scene.

I'd actually love something like that. Pantibar*kinda* hits that nail on the head and so does Front Lounge, but they still feel very metropolitan. A gay pub, that's just a pub, where it's gimmick is the fact is it HAS no gimmicks...that'd actually be really cool.

Reminds me of the Black Cap in Camden (although if my memory is right, it has a "venue" downstairs)
