Cast your mind back to the Galway city of days gone by, where diddley-eye music echoed from every pub and the importance of tradition was in full effect but something was missing. Searching for a safe haven from the trad tunes, a space to listen to really good music, two young lads – Simon and Kevin – broke the mould and on a day like any other in 1994, the golden gates of the Blue Note were thrown open.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all creamy pints of Guinness and traditional tunes out wesht. Elegance, class and luxury ooze from the fine establishments lining our city’s streets, drawing us in with the tempting aroma of herbs, spices, fresh fruit and, well, alcohol.
If whiskey makes you frisky and brandy makes you randy, then gin is inevitably going to make you sin. Winter is the season for being in a constant state of literal high spirits, so if you’ve had your fill of hot toddies and mulled wine, we’ve got the gin joints for you.
