    I used to visit JJ Smyths most weeks and there was always some outstanding gigs (The Brian Meakin Band keep jumping to mind).

    JJ's changed hands and doesnt do so much music and googling doesn't turn up anywhere new.

    Are there any decent live music bars in Dublin that Im just not finding?

    Keep an eye on "Arthurs" on Thomas St. Great blues and jazz there from time to time. See link below.

    Other links worth keeping an eye on :

    The gigs here are not always in Dublin, but a good few are.
