Here’s what’s happening in the Bernard Shaw before it closes down this month

Luke Sharkey

News broke in early September that Dublin cultural hotspot and late-night oasis The Bernard Shaw would be closing down at the end of October.

While the blow was softened via Bodytonic’s announcement of a Shaw style space opening on the north side – the blow to the city’s nightlife landscape was palpable.

However, the party isn’t over just yet. In typical Shaw & Bodytonic style – the last few weeks on South Richmond street will be filled with music, and presumably, dancing.

As such, we wanted to give you the lowdown on the best music-related events taking place in the Bernard Shaw between now and it’s closure. Whether you’re a long-time regular looking to get a last fix or just looking to find out what all the fuss is about – there’s plenty here to whet all appetites.
