THIS PUB IS NOW OUT OF ACTION BECAUSE OF A FIRE
Kelly O’Malley, one of the co-founders of Drop Dead Twice, has launched a Go Fund Me campaign in order to rebuild and reopen the popular Dublin bar, following last month’s fire. I hope that the campaign is a success.
Five units of Dublin Fire Brigade responded to the fire at Drop Dead Twice on Francis Street on Monday 11th July. The emergency services were alerted by an automatic fire alarm and smoke was also seen coming from the premises at around 4.30am. According to local media and other reports a well-developed fire had taken hold on the ground floor and a full evacuation of an adjoining property was necessary.
Here is a comment that I made in January 2018: ‘This was the Backstage or the Tivoli Backstage but more recently it was renamed Stage 19. Upstairs is [or was] Drop Dead Twice where you bring your own bottles of alcohol to be used by the bar staff to create wonderful cocktails [Euro 20 fee]. I do not visit pubs on a regular basis so I do not know is my description is currently accurate.’
