The Blue Note Fun Boozer for Dancing and Craic

The beating heart of Galway’s Best End.

The Blue Note opened in 1994 when everyone was looking in the other direction. At this stage, a generation of Galway’s most creative and passionate DJ’s, dancers, musicians, poets, ravers and rogues have passed through the Golden Gates. Some never left. Always changing, The Boozer is as different now from that opening night, as it is from three years ago, yet somehow still the same.

Offering the very best in Electro, Soul, House, Disco and Songs with Words dished up by finest local DJ talent, the biggest names in the Irish scene and occasional international superstar DJ. All making the pilgrimage to the decks on the greatest dance floor in the land.

There are a handful of tasty gins, a small selection of the finest craft beers, and some intriguing whiskeys. The philosophy here is, drinks are something to enjoy while you talk to friends, not something you talk about.

The snugs inside are ideal for intimate get togethers. The heated beer garden transforms every Sunday into a live music venue, so if your phone dies you’ll probably find who you’re looking for there.
