One of Dublin’s most iconic questionable nightclubs.

IF YOU HAPPENED to go to college in Dublin between the years 2005 and 2011, you more than likely heard of/came across/went out in a nightclub called Redz.

It was an interesting place:

1. The queue was always down the road

D’Olier Street looked something like:

You could see it from a mile away. The mad rush to get into Redz on a Monday was a guarantee.

2. The little area when you came in the front door was tiny

Now, in brighter, happier times:

It had one table and a full bar for some bizarre reason.

3. Until you went downstairs to the basement, which felt even smaller

It was like this, except about 100 times smaller:

4. Monday nights were even more wedged than usual

5. Because Redz’s drink offers were silly

Attracting all the students just up to college like:

6. The roof was worryingly low in the basement area

Especially for the taller people.

7. And the general temperature down there was beyond most people

And beyond dancing. It was a nightclub/sauna.

8. It wasn’t helped by the amount of people crowding the dancefloor

9. And the bar was always clogged with people doing jagerbombs

The connoisseurs’ choice. You weren’t going to be drinking anything else in Redz.

Now that they are going to be opening up a new place where Redz used to be, people can just console themselves with these fine memories.
