Up and coming is a series of events designed to encourage new acts into the burlesque scene and allow space for experiment and opportunity to trail new ideas. The gigs will be informal and friendly and aimed at making the burlesque scene in Dublin even better. These events are an opportunity for those with new acts or those who have not performed in a Burlesque setting to try out new material in front of an audience which will include at least two industry professionals who will critique their performance and provide feedback. The audience will also have an opportunity to provide constructive criticism for each act in writing if they wish. We are interested in all kinds of acts from classic burlesque to very alternative neo burlesque. We are also interested in singers, musicians, circus acts, comedians and those interested in hosting.
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 available for private parties, functions and as a separate music venue.
