This coming April will see The Porterhouse Group unveil an exciting addition to Dublin’s night-life scene, with a new live music and entertainments venue; Lost Lane.
The new venue is located at 1-2 Adam Court off Grafton Street, the former home of Lillies Bordello which closed in early January.
Music and emerging talent will be at the heart of Lost Lane, as the new venue seeks to create and maintain a reputation as the home of live music in Dublin. Featured artists will span a wide and diverse range of acts from across the Irish and international music scene, with genres from rock and indie, to jazz and trad bands.
Through Lost Lane, The Porterhouse Group will seek to provide a platform to shine a light on the ones to watch within the music industry and create a sense of community for the music and entertainment scene.
From Thursdays through Saturdays, Lost Lane will also play host to live DJ sets from the likes of DJ Nialler9 and friends to Lost & Sound (a new female DJ collaboration with Sally Cinnamon, Claire Beck and Kate Brennan-Harding) who will see Lost Lane into the early hours.
Monday nights will become the go to for industry stalwarts with free entry live music gigs and residencies from bands such as Showguns of Stank (Mick Pyro and Pete Pamf) and The Square Pegs, creating the perfect solution for industry workers looking for somewhere to party on their night off and Dubliners looking to kick start their week with a fun night out.
Substantial investment has been made to respectfully restore and preserve the Georgian structure and details of the venue, alongside updating and installing state of the art sound and lighting, acoustic treatment and set design that will promise a complete immersive live music experience.
Commenting on the new venue, Elliot Hughes, partner at The Porterhouse Group, said: “Lost Lane will give people the opportunity to see bands in a really intimate setting. We’ve broken the piggy bank so that we can get the absolute best in sound and lighting. We’ve stripped it back in terms of décor as we want the focus to be on the artists, allowing people to really get lost in the music without distractions of decorative bells and whistles.”
Lost Lane will officially open to the public on Friday 12th April, with a limited number of tickets on sale to attend. The opening line up will feature Kormac’s Big Band and DJ Nialler9, whilst Saturday will play host to Turning Pirate Mix Tape with guest singers Niamh Farrell (Ham Sandwich), Cathy Davey and more surprise special guests.
