Welcome to Arthur's

A restaurant pub and Blues and Jazz venue in the heart of The Liberties, Dublin City

Arthur's is the nearest pub on the route to The Guinness Storehouse, one of the city's foremost tourist attractions. It is popular both with locals and tourists. Naturally it has the freshest pint of Guinness in all of Ireland.

Arthurs is a classic Dublin pub, old style but well appointed. It has been a pub for over 200 years, and has many historical connections, being beside St. Catherines Church, outside of which the patriot, Robert Emmet, was hung, drawn and quartered in 1803.

We light a real turf fire everyday, play an eclectic mix of Irish music and have live music sessions in the evenings. We offer wholesome food at reasonable prices, seven days a week.

We do not have a television as it would interfere with the relaxed ambiance, conversation and banter.

Upstairs at Arthur’s, we have a room that operates as a restaurant in the day, but at night becomes Arthur’s Blues and Jazz Club, where we host top national and international blues and jazz acts 5 nights a week. On stage we have a concert grand piano, and we also have an excellent lighting rig, and a top professional PA and sound system.

Please contact us if you require any further information or have any special requirements.

Mose Allison Tribute

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Home Page, Music, What's on this Month, What's on this Week

Two years to the day Mose passed away.. Philip Christie(piano/voclas) with Dan Walsh(drums) and Neil Ó Loclainn(bass) pay tribute the American jazz and blues pianist, singer, and songwriter.

He became notable for playing a unique mix of blues and modern jazz, both singing and playing piano. Some of the tunes penned include The Seventh Son, I love The Life I Lead and Your Mind Is On Vacation, as well as his adaptions of Parchman Farm and Baby Please dont Go

Born in Tippo, MS, in 1927, jazz pianist Mose Allison has managed to bridge the gap between jazz and blues with more than 30 albums that cover both genres. He learned to play the piano as a child in the Mississippi Delta. When he came of age he enlisted in the army and played in the Army Band. Upon his discharge he attended Louisiana State University, earning a B.A. in English in 1950. In 1956 he moved to New York City to pursue a career as a musician, and played with such jazz figures as Zoot Simms, Gerry Mulligan, Bob Brookmeyer and Stan Getz. He recorded albums for a variety of labels, including Prestige, Columbia and Atlantic, where he stayed for 16 years. He left that label in 1978 and in 1982 signed with Elektra, where he put out two albums before moving over to Blue Note-Capitol Records.
