The brand new venue, located on the former site of Lillie's Bordello off Grafton Street, opens on April 12.
Lost Lane, a new 280-capacity music venue, is set to open its doors in April. The venue, situated off Grafton Street in the space formerly occupied by Lillie's Bordello, promises to place a strong emphasis on the best of Dublin's emerging talent, across a wide variety of genres.
According to its website, Lost Lane "seeks to create and maintain a reputation as the home of live music in Dublin." The venue's lineups will include a mix of renowned artists and up-and-coming talent, as well as DJ residencies with Lost & Sound and Nialler9.
On Friday April 12, Lost Lane will host their very first event, a launch party featuring Irish producer Kormac. The following night will feature Niamh Farrell of HamsandwicH, Cathy Davey and more surprise guests for the Turning Pirate Lost Lane Mix Tape. Over the following weeks, Lost Lane will play host to an incredible array of Irish acts, including Wyvern Lingo, Ships, Katie Kim, Delorentos, Scullion, Interskalactic, David Kitt, Le Galaxie, Mick Pyro, I Have A Tribe, Join Me In The Pines, Zaska, and many more.
The opening of the venue comes as welcome news to those disappointed by the closure of Lille's Bordello in January. The iconic nightclub was just one in a string of recent closures, which also including the Tivoli, The Wright Venue and Hangar on Andrew's Lane.
Toby Hatchett, whose sound systems can be found at The Big Romance, Connolly's of Leap and Hang Dai, supplied the high-end, custom built speakers for the new venue.
