  • The Intrepid Fox, London

    http://www.intrepidfox.com/


    Highly recommended, just don't cross the tiny barmaid. sSc_wideeyed.gif




  • I'll state the obvious being that I live in Dublin.

    Fibber Magees.
    Bruxelles (downstairs to the left).
    New Fibbers on the Quays.(Beside Sin É)

    That's all I know of! :(




  • I usually frequent The Metal Travel Guide anytime I'm looking for a rock/metal bar in a random country. Very useful!

    Thanks jenizzle, you just ruined my thread :mad:.

    Seriously though, while that is a very handy resource, I like the idea of having a thread where people can vouch for the listed venues so hopefully we'll get a few more listings on here.

    What's the difference between old and new Fibbers?

    New Fibbers (or Fibbers Rock Bar as it's called) is strictly over 21's and geared more towards the older Metal crowd. More like Bruxelles than the teenage pandering Fibbers on Parnell Street. It's a little more intimate too.

    :)

    Also I've just been informed that there will be a dj in Fibbers Rock Bar (I think that is it's proper title).

    ah crap... the jukebox was one of the reasons I liked going there, even more than Brux.
    Any word of times/days etc or is it just rumour?




  • I'd like to add The Cave Prinsengracht 472, Amsterdam to the list. Great little bar with live music and and really friendly bar staff.

    Well I'll put it down to rumour at this time. I read an update that a certain Dublin tattoo artist is doing a dj set in there, so that's what sparked my press-like rumour mill post. Aw.

  • Nice 'n' Sleazy on Sauchiehall Street Glasgow is always worth a look if in Glasgow.
    Great name for a pub too!!




  • Solid Rock Cafe at the bottom of Hope St in Glasgow (at Junction with Argyle St); great pub with two levels and plenty of good music and memorabilia http://www.solidrockglasgow.com/

    The Cathouse on Union St in Glasgow; rock/metal night club and live venue http://www.cathouseglasgow.co.uk/

    Was a gay night there the last time i was in it. Took a while to cop it. Pint gone in seconds and so was i




  • Berlin

    Rockcafe Halford, Boxhanger Strasse: Ginormous statue of Rob Halford outside. Inside, it's all things Judas Priest, including a fine selection of metal cocktails

    Jailbreak, Banschstrasse: Nice little place that's a nice little stopoff before hitting up the next place...

    K17, Pettenkoferstrasse: This place is AWESOME! Courtyard/smoking area that has a little bar, and hotdogs and burgers on the bbq for a euro. To the left, there is a venue for bands. To the right, there's a 3-floored 4-roomed club. Ground floor has Gothic/EBM music. First floor has Electro/80's music. 2nd Floor is divided into two - one room has black/death metal, the other has heavy metal, nu-metal, trash etc. Each room has a bar and the place gets a great crowd on Friday and Saturday nights. Don't like the song they're playing? Just walk around till you find a room that is playing something better!

    Birmingham

    Scruffy Murphys
    is a great aul place for a few pints, bit of a chat and some singing along later in the night. They play a bit of everything from nice rock n'roll to death metal.

    I'll add more hopefully...




  • Dublin:

    The Sub Lounge under Tara St Station

    Foggy Dew Beside Central Bank, Dame Street

    Neptune Bar down in the Flowing Tide, Lower Abbey Street

    Formerly known as Radio City, now renovated into The Good Bits It looks cool and has after parties for the o2 concerts. Opposite Busarás

    London: So so many, especially in Camden :D

    The Crobar, Soho

    World's End/ Underworld, Camden

    Dublin Castle, Camden

    Hobgoblin, Camden

    Big Red, Holloway

    Jekyll & Hyde

  • Wow, I leave this thread alone for a few days and all of a sudden I've a load of updates to make to the first post :).

    Thanks to everyone that's added pubs so far!

    Is this definitely a Rock/Metal-orientated pub? The website didn't give me that impression at all.

    Yea, it is. It's better when it's quiet. It gets packed with IFSC workers at peak times. They play mainstream rock & metal music and it looks really gothic and cool. Usually find a bunch of rockers there before concerts in the o2. Cheapest pint in Dublin too :D There's DJ nights for pop/ dance as well though...

  • Aw, Lil Kitten, how come you changed your name? I thought there was a new reply to my thread :)




  • Up North you have Spring & Airbrake, or the Limelight as I always refer to it, in Belfast.

    Had to take advantage of my subscriber priviledges!! :D Might change it to Dr. Love in tribute to the upcoming KISS concert! ;)




  • nice thread.
    I would like to add The Krazyhouse in Liverpool!

    http://www.thekrazyhouse.co.uk/

    Its a 3 floor club with a metal floor which is quite big and sometimes they open quite late and do all nighters, you can get food there too! The whole place is likely to be taken over by a people train to a metal version of nelly the elephant at some point too!

    nice thread.

    Not sure how I've not found out about this place before now, I'm in Liverpool regularly for football matches. I'll be there over the May Bank Holiday so I'll do my best to get in there for a look.




  • anything in waterford?!

    You could always post a thread here to find out and then if there is one, come back here and let us know :).




  • Twister Vicks is in Waterford, and is getting a good reputation for rock and metal bands....


    Incidentally if any bands wanna play down there let me know, as i'm in the process of organising a gig there in May, and we'll need another 2 - 3 bands.


    ????




  • Looking for somewhere in Dublin that Hard Rock music is played regularly? :cool:
