Sin É has been on the Irish pub scene for a long time now. In its heyday during the ‘Celtic tiger’ it was a one of the first on the lips for live music. Admittedly back then it didn’t have to try hard, but in recent years it saw its luck change, and slowly but surely it went downhill. It changed hands but continued its downward spiral, until its road was run last year and it sadly closed. Many a fan believed that was the end of a Dublin institution.
But in September 2013 it was saved. It reopened under new management, who wisely saw the name as an asset. With a lick of paint, a good dose of elbow grease, spit and polish, it was revitalised. In the old days part of its charm was its scruffiness, much like your average teenager. Well after its hibernation it has emerged a grown up and with gusto!
The new guys realise that its distance from the centre of it all can be an asset or a hindrance. The asset being its stand alone independence, the hindrance getting people to walk here. Well they have pushed the mantle on the live music and there is barely a night without entertainment. From Bluegrass to Ska, Punk to Classic Rock everyone gets a look in – and they are walking here in droves.
With an amazing selection of Whiskeys, spirits, craft beers, AND Pizza, it has a lot to offer besides the music.
“That’s it!” Is right.
