Grace is a brand new LGBTQ+ techno night being set up in Dublin

More good news for Dublin nightlife today, following Bodytonic’s purchase of the Wright Venue.

Grace is a brand new LGBTQ+ techno night being set up in Dublin city. With a view to injecting a fresh nightlife alternative for members of the gay community, the night has attracted our interest for a few intuitive approaches they’ve taken in the run up to their opening night.

Firstly, there’s the inclusive and friendly ethos the night is striving to provide. Here’s an excerpt on the topic from the collective’s mission statement.

“Grace is a queer techno night in Dublin. Grace provides a safe and free space for LGBTQ+ people to be themselves without judgement. We work with LGBTQ+, female and marginalised artists as much as possible. No homophobia, transphobia, femmephobia, racism or bigotry of any kind will be tolerated at Grace. Grace is a space where the weird, wild and wonderful queers can come and enjoy themselves in all their shapes, sizes and colours. We believe in individuality as well as community.”

Then there’s the collective’s policy toward mobile phones, which are absolutely not allowed at their events. The idea is that the absence of any phones will allow crowds to free up, be themselves and enjoy their night. Also, crucially, this will encourage crowds to connect more with the DJs and music on the night. We love this.

Grace will have its opening night on February 2nd in 39/40, located on Arran Quay. Event details are available here.
