On June 23, the Workman’s Cellar will be transformed into a space celebrating feminine energy and empowerment.
Conversations around women’s safety and solidarity in January of 2022 inspired the founder of The Girl’s Room, Meg, to create the event.
Music on the night will include everything from nineties and naughties throwbacks, pop, hip-hop, RnB
with plenty of women’s empowerment jams too. DJs will be announced ahead of the event on their Instagram.
Commenting on the club night, The Girl’s Room founder Meg said: “The Girl’s Room is a Dublin-based women’s only nightclub event inspired by the experience of the girl’s bathroom on a night out.”
“Whether we are sharing secrets, lip glosses, exchanging compliments or hyping each other
up – the girls room is a place of connection and solidarity. It is our safe space. The Girl’s Room aims to replicate this experience and unite women from all backgrounds for a night of collective empowerment and enjoyment.”
A survey carried out by SAOR space in April 2022 found that out of 100 women residing in Dublin, aged between 18-29, 54 per cent don’t feel physically safe in their community and 45 per cent don’t feel emotionally safe in their community.
Meg explained the need for women-only spaces in Ireland as they will ” combat clique culture and unite women from all backgrounds”, ” offer an outlet for women to express themselves freely in a safe environment” and “uplift and support the wonderful women in our communities and country”.
“Women only spaces have great potential for healing in the sense that healing happens when
we connect, have real, wholesome interactions, relate and share with other women, and
experience collective joy,” she continued.
“We are passionate about involving and supporting women who are creatives,
artists, and business owners in our community. Our entire team is composed entirely of
women, from our founder, our promotion team to our graphic designer, DJs and
“There are already some wonderful platforms who’ve been doing similar work like: Women of
Impakt, Rogue Collective and The GALPAL Collective to name a few and we want to add to
