Having only opened earlier this month, Lost Lane (formerly Lillie’s Bordello) is looking to create and maintain a reputation as the home of live music in Dublin.
The venue promises to have music and emerging talent at the heart of it with artists spanning across a diverse range of acts from the Irish and international music scene, and genres from rock and indie, to jazz and trad bands.
The new music venue will be part of the Porterhouse pub chain, however, it will take a step away from the traditional beer-focused establishment.
Speaking with the Dublin Gazette, Porterhouse Partner Elliot Hughes said,“A lot of venues have been closing recently but I think they would tend to fit more in the term of night club.”
“What we are doing with Lost Lane is embracing a growing culture of live music. This scene in Ireland has been booming over recent years with more and more talented artists looking for places to play around the capital, while I don’t think the infrastructure has followed suit,” Hughes continued.“Of course though, everything is at risk. Opening a new venue will always give a sense of nervousness. It is impossible to guarantee success however we have a wonderful location; a top class sound system and a fantastic look to the venue.”
Music lovers can expect to see line-ups that will feature renowned household names, alongside other collaborative bills that will showcase some of Ireland’s up and coming talent.
Throughout the week, Lost Lane will also play host to DJ residencies with Nialler9 and Lost & Sound playing Friday & Saturday nights respectively.
Regular late nights include Friday’s playing host to SPACER with Nialler9 and friends, Saturday’s with LOST AND SOUND (Sally Cinnamon, Claire Beck and Kate Brennan Harding) and The Monday Club, every Monday with free entry, live music from Irish stalwarts of the music industry including Mick Pyro, Pete Pamf, The Square Pegs and DJ’s playing into the night.
Lost Lane held its opening night on April 12th and have already confirmed a wide range of artists including DJ Kormac, David Kitt, Delerentos, Interskalactic, Saint Sister, Wyvern Lingo,
