On a few special nights each year, the shining pearl in the oyster of Galway’s West that goes by the name of The Blue Note, is granted a late night bar exemption. On such evenings you might discover that The Magic is capable of happening. Whatever sprinkling of rave-fairydust occurs when you crank up the system, book your party bitch DJs and allocate some extra hours for dancing (make-a-wish: count to three) and hey presto, you have the best club-in-a-pub you could ever hope for.
No small thanks to the enduring presence of Clarinbridge’s Oyster Festival on the city’s inexhaustible festival calendar, Saturday 13th September is one of these special nights. Some of our most molten-hot parties these past few years have happened when the Blue Note’s hours have been extended (we don’t think we’ll ever forget the Chic after-party for instance ) so please forgive us if we come across as over-excited and over-zealous.
This is our first 110th Street sesh in the venue in over a year and to say that we’re chomping at the bit would be doing a disservice to equine-inspired metaphors (whose quota were all exhausted during race week).
Come along. Make it happen.
For this night is long(er than usual). And it’s free in.
