After 41 years of being southside softies, Hot Press has taken up residence at the top end of Capel Street, part of a historic neighbourhood where all forms of Dublin life can be found. We take a walk around the area...
Where can you watch a film in sensory overloading 4DX; slurp a bowl of steaming Vietnamese Pho Soup; get yourself measured for a new suit; squeeze out a tune on some uillean pipes; find that one missing Superman comic needed to complete your collection; down a pint of Salted Caramel Stout; ooh and aah over cute bunny rabbits; (then ooh and aah over different types of rabbits at a plethora of sex shops...); purchase an antique mantlepiece; get your eyebrows threaded; and stock up on saucy bedroom requisites, all within roughly half-a-mile of each other? The answer is the part of Dublin 1 that Team Hot Press now proudly calls ‘home’.
Running north from Ormond Quay and Bachelors Walk to Parnell Street, you won’t find anywhere in Dublin that’s as electric, eclectic and downright fabulous to know as our new neighbourhood.
In a 16-page feature on Dublin's north side, we recall the area's rich history, report on some exciting new developments, and highlight the places and people that make the place tick.
