The Salty Dog won't be opening in Rathmines, but this nautical music venue is taking its place

It’s Rock ’n’ Rum.

WE BROUGHT YOU the news of a brand new Salty Dog venue last month, well now we have the bad news.

Alas, it seems the anticipated venue is no longer opening in Rathmines, due to ‘docking issues’.

Instead, a new ‘tavern’ called The Bowery will be taking over the venue. It will officially open on October 28, just in time for the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend.

It still sounds pretty great though


They still have the nautical theme going on, and will be serving a selection of craft rums aged in smoked barrels, and rum based cocktails.


There’ll also be live music every weekend, with resident DJs including Le Galaxie’s Michael Pope and Today FM’s Kelly-Anne Byrne.


The Jerry Fish Electric Slideshow and the Stomptown Brass will open up the venue. We’re told music will be a mix of rock n roll, rockabilly, blues, funk, disco, and ska.

The interiors are very much the same as we would’ve seen in the Salty Dog


The port holes lining the bar come from the Irish Naval auxiliary ship L.E. Setanta, while the floorboards come from the demolished Boland’s Mill in Ringsend


The wood paneling on the wall comes from the former Little Sisters of the Poor convent on the South Circular Road



The pub is a venue of Tom Bohan of the Oarsman in Ringsend, and Brian Costelloe of Costello’s Tavern in Limerick.
