Previously, it had operated as the Pavilion Bar & Nightclub under the stewardship of some of Cork’s best-loved musical names, welcoming huge musicians and artists over a decade in operation.
More often, it was the likes of Fish Go Deep who brought the roof down on the nightclub, though. And, as such, it was entirely appropriate that Greg & Shane were among the first to play at the newly reopened Dali @ The Pav.
However, the new owners had other ideas. They reached out to the creative team behind the Dali & Gala art space in The Marina Commercial Park, keen to make their new premises a landmark city venue once again.
Over the weekend, New Jackson, No Spill Blood and the Minus clubnight all entertained the masses.
Hope and Steve both come from the house and techno scene in Cork and say music fans can expect some huge bookings over the summer, with the likes of Redshape and Yan Cook lined up, along with a huge variance of bands and singers.
