The Phoenix gets a hole in the wall for its 20th birthday

By Barcham 11 November 2013 6


The Phoenix Bar is turning 20!

To celebrate, it’s doubled in size!

What once was downstairs Shooters is now an extension of the Phoenix Bar which is pretty much the most exciting thing to happen in my life since I became old enough to first attend the Phoenix Bar. They’ve put in a second bar, a raised stage, and a projector.

It is now my life’s goal to hook Mario Kart up to that projector and play it in the pub.

Those plans will have to wait however because the Phoenix is a bit too busy for that right now.

Check out the massive pile of super rad entertainment they have going over their birthday week!

I will see you there!

We got the hole in the wall in just in time for this crazy week!

This place is riddled with perverts.

You say that as if it’s a bad thing.

In Ireland, your barman doesn’t take 10 minutes to pour a Guinness.

Wow, 20 years already eh? Seems like only yesterday that they had their 10th. I suppose that means I’m getting old too, especially when I say things like “seems like only yesterday”…

This is an AWESOME development though, such a great idea and something I never even considered might happen.

Now there will be enough room for swinging cats.
