At yesterday’s PuB NiGHT we checked out one of the new places-to-be for this summer. Dublin Calling Rooftop just opened 10 days ago in the heart of downtown Vancouver on Granville Street. Now we can for sure say: approved! Great location and even better when filled with cool people like last night.
But let’s start from the beginning. When we entered the building of Dublin Calling, we first reached Dublin Calling’s Party Pub where you can enjoy a typical Irish flair and play pub sports, such as darts or billiards. During the weekends, they throw parties with a live DJ and dance floor. We had our tables reserved at the rooftop, so we went all the way up the stairs until we reached this unique spot. Wooden tables, hanging flower pots and a greenhouse roof – cozy! Our tables were taken quite fast with old and new INTERNeX people, so we could catch up with stories from the last and plans for the next weekend. The drink menu offers a good range of beer, wine, cocktails, shots and pops, Irish inspired of course. But our Swedish gang was taken care of as well, with a shot called ‘Swedish Berries’.
We were still sitting under the light chains for a while before the tables emptied and we welcomed our hard working late comers. When our table was the only one taken on the entire rooftop, it was time to call it a night. Almost at least. Somehow we ended up at our famous karaoke bar in Gastown on the way home…
I enjoyed the night and I am pretty sure that we will spend one or more summer nights at Dublin Calling Rooftop.
I am looking forward to see many of you this Sunday for our hike and picnic at the Lighthouse Park.
