I love Vicar St. Such a beautiful venue, intimate and warm. Staff are helpful. Bar is gorgeous, albeit expensive but Dublin is expensive anyway. We were here for the Blindboy live podcast. It was brilliant

Went to see Foil Arm and Hog in Vicar street today. Venue was really good and staff very polite. Floor seats don’t have as good visibility of the stage as the surrounding balcony seats but all said a great show by FAH and good venue.

Reminds me of a student venue, although cleaner!! It was well organised, drinks average price and staff were helpful and polite.

I think there is a cloakroom which is quite busy before a show.
