Button Factory

Looking for the city's best live music venues? Button Factory is a state-of-the-art drinking and dancing hub that's not to be slept on. Catch some of the biggest names in the industry as well as a string of Ireland's up-and-coming acts and buzzing club nights from world-class DJs.


Located in the historical Powerscourt Townhouse, Pygmalion is one of the most famous Dublin nightclubs. A lively spot for techno DJs and house music alike, this is one for all of you looking for a memorable affair, alongside 'Pygtails' such as margs and Moscow mules.


Another cracking all-in-one venue, Dtwo fronts a basement nightclub that welcomes the capital's party people every night of the week. Resident DJs cater for all tastes, dropping everything from old-school classics through to the latest commercial hits.


Opium is a versatile hangout boasting its own indoor garden space. By day, this place is a stunning Asian restaurant but by nightfall the venue becomes one of Dublin's best clubs. Expect state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, with DJs churning out feel-good party tunes.

Bad Bobs

A Temple Bar staple, Bad Bobs is one of the best bars in Dublin for many reasons. While sipping on gorgeous cocktails, you can listen to live music and DJ sets. The party spirit takes off across two floors, with the upper-level VIP suites and rooftop terraces on cue if you need a slight breather from the mayhem.
