Old U2 Favourite Dockers Pub Set To Reopen Before Christmas
An old favourite pub of Irish music band U2 is due to reopen after being closed for almost 15 years.
As reported by The Sunday Business Post, The Dockers pub in Dublin's docklands has been overhauled by property group Hibernia Reit, and subsequently leased to L’Estrange Group.
L’Estrange owns and operates The Bleeding Horse and Ruin Bar in Dublin's city centre.
It is understood that the pub, which is located on Sir Rogerson's Quay, will reopen before Christmas as The Dockers Pub.
The reopened pub will serve food and drinks and strive to "bring a new concept to the area," David L’Estrange, owner of L’Estrange Group, said.
The group confirmed that it will also carry out the design of the pub, entrusting the task to David's daughter, Jill L’Estrange.
She claimed that the design would "hark back to the industrial docklands and the studios of Windmill Lane", where U2 would recorded their early albums.
