The Locke Bar: New Cultural Hub For Limerick!

Celebrating 21 years at the heart of Limerick city this year, The Locke Bar recently marked the occasion by announcing details of its new venue, The Loft, which will play host to theatre, music, literature, comedy, and be available for parties and corporate functions. The Limerick Writers' Centre are already in residence there since last year with their 'On The Nail' literary reading series and now Limerick’s Bottom Dog Theatre Company have taken up residency in the new venue, which is ‘themed’ with memorabilia from Limerick’s theatrical and musical past. Richard Costello proprietor of the Locke Bar has managed, even in these recessionary times, to create a new cultural hub for the city. Also in residency are Limerick Songwriters who have a weekly open-mic session for new and aspiring songwriters. The Locke Bar is now undoubtedly the new home of poetry, literature, theatre and creative and artistic endeavours in Limerick.
