Resident DJs Cyril Briscoe & Cian Ó Cíobháin are as astounded as anyone that the club night they started when the Celtic Tiger was but a wee cub has somehow managed to survive a decade and a half throwing parties in their adopted town. Think about it…. 1998. Mere months after France won the World Cup on home turf and a matter of weeks after the Galway football team swept all before them to become senior All-Ireland champions, 110th Street threw her maiden party in the Town Hall Theatre bar.
The club has seen many incarnations since - in venues such as the Radisson, the GPO, the Vic, the Cellar, Monroe’s, Blue Note & Factory. DJs-cum-historians & budding filmmakers continue to propagate the myth, recent examples being Daniel Coogan & Amy Coyle’s fine ‘Sound Of A Tribe’ documentary (on Vimeo here) and Cian’s misty-eyed retrospective of where Galway was at in 2002 (read it here)
#GOY we hear you exclaim! But 110th Street has always been more about the now than the then as our tune choices testify.
Here’s what happening on Saturday 23rd November.
Pre-party in the Blue Note where the debonair residents will be joined by the strikingly handsome Byron in the Blue Note from 9pm, with special limited edition 110th St is 15 jar-gherita cocktails.
Afterwards, courtesy bus to Róisín Dubh - we’re hoping that Senator Rafto will be happy to drive it. If he doesn’t take up that job with the FAI.
There are so many hits from 180 months of clubbing to choose from, so get down early to catch as many as you can.
Oh and free pint of Pilsner Urquell to first 50 into Róisín Dubh.
