Just another late bar?!

It is a huge premise with a big smoking floor. It seems to be a pick up place (last stop of the night) to me. Music was okay,drinks were okay...the crowd was a big mix of students... read more

Was going to a 30th party in there last night, walked up to the door with my girlfriend ( who is under 23 ) so is underage and two other couples. The bouncers smiled at her and let her in then stopped me behind as I was after too much drink when really I was after 2 pints. Bouncers here... More

Hit the Bowery last weekend for my friends hen party, had an area reserved for 12, excellent customer service throughout, even with the busy jazz. The music and craic was mighty. My friend lost her phone and the manager dropped it to a collecting point in the city a few days after. Would definitely recommend the Bowery, super staff and... More

Hit the Bowery last night with a group of 6 friends. I haven't been in the Bowery in a few months and I was very pleasantly surprised the changes are really impressive will definitely be our club of choice in the future. If you haven't been in a while get in and check it out.

It is a huge premise with a big smoking floor. It seems to be a pick up place (last stop of the night) to me. Music was okay,drinks were okay...the crowd was a big mix of students to early 20's -40's. Can't deal with the smoking floor.cant even breathe there. Nothing really special about this place.

The music was brilliant, the theme was lovely. the atmosphere was the only let down, very ignorant & middle aged, there was an old crowd. Loved the bathroom upstairs espesically the seat & the long mirrors :-)

I'm a current UCC student who would attend the bowery regularly for college nights out. Last night whilst out for a friends birthday I experienced the most rude and disrespectful member of staff whilst paying to get in. She had brown hair, young twenties, sitting at the right of the desk. Working in a bar myself, I know that when... More

The door staff are absolutely apauling and incredibly violent. I have never seen anything like this and I don't know how it's let happen. I'll never return here again and it's a pity because it's such a nice nightclub. My girlfriend and I were bullied and removed for no apparent reason. It's definately a birthday to forget.
