A non-alcoholic bar is coming to DUBLIN so you can still have a laugh during Dry January

Off the beer?

Yeah, same.


But if you're like me and fearing that cabin fever is about to set in, as you spend another weekend inside tucked away from the sight of a bar for fear you'll sniff out a glass of Pinot; I'm here to tell you it doesn't have to be that way.

Because a pop-up is coming to Dublin that won't just cure your Saturday night fever but it's also alcohol-free so you can keep your dry January chugging down the right track.

Ireland's first non-alcoholic beer bar is coming to South Anne Street, Dublin 2, from January 18 - 20 and it's got a lineup of stellar events to see you through the weekend.

The "Bar For When You're Off The Beers" is the brainchild of Pure Brew, Ireland’s only fully brewed, non-alcoholic lager from the brewers of Guinness.

Over the weekend, not only is the bar and all the events FREE to enter, but there's also going to be a DJ playing every night, a cinema screen in the basement and FREE snacks as well as Pure Brew on tap; talk about the dream sitch.


So what else does the lineup present us?


Comedian Joanne McNally and special guests host ‘The Chats’, an interactive comedy experience discussing topics at random with audience participation encouraged.


DJ and comedian Marcus O’Laoire who hosts a night of music, beatboxing, and dancing, culminating in a Sober Race ‘til late.



Sunday session commences at 12.30pm with Fearless Moves, a music-themed free fitness workout session which is led by fitness instructor Nathalie Lennon to the tunes of top DJ Conor Behan followed by healthy bites (advance booking required) and an ice cold Pure Brew.

The evening is then topped off with an alternative Date Night event (without the Dutch courage!) for couples looking for love, hosted by Dublin drag queen legend Davina Devine - this will then be followed by a late night disco.

I don't know about you but I don't think January has ever looked this good. Bring it on.
