Dublin’s newest venue Lost Lane give first glimpse inside & reveal residencies

Lillie’s Bordello is no more, and it seems to have taken its VIP culture to the grave with it. In it’s place is a much more music-focused venue.


Lost Lane is opening up this weekend and outdone themselves on the sound front, recruiting the same crew who fitted out Hang Dai and other spots to fit the soundsystem.

“Lost Lane is all about the music experience,” Elliot Hughes, Partner at The Porterhouse Group says. “We’ve invested and put the focus on making sure the sound system is the best it can be, with Hatchett Sound Furniture and Scheele Sound, as well as the right lighting – with minimal distractions. Lost Lane is going to be all about the atmosphere – our main aim is to create a lasting memory of the music experience. When people walk out of the door of Lost Lane, they will hopefully have enjoyed the gig, whether it’s their first or 500th to the absolute max. Our ambition is to become the go to destination in Dublin, for people who are looking for a fresh mix of interesting bands and sounds, with a guaranteed great atmosphere and sound.”

The venue is on Adam Court just off Grafton Street and they’re prepping for their first couple of events.

On Friday they welcome Kormac for a live set, with Booka Brass and Spacevolk on support duties. Doors for that are at 7.30pm. Afterwards Nialler9 takes the reins for the first in his new residency in the venue, Spacer Fridays, going back to back with Cian Ó Cíobháin.


Saturday sees Turning Pirate’s popular Mix Tape series come to the venue, with guest singers Niamh Farrell of HamsandwicH, Cathy Davey and some special surprise guests. Sally Cinnamon, Kate Brennan Harding and Claire Beck will be spinning tunes afterwards for their Lost & Sound residency.


Collaboration between artists is key for Lost Lane, but Elliot Hughes says that the venue will also give people the opportunity to see bands in a really intimate setting.

“We’ve broken the piggy bank so that we can get the absolute best in sound and lighting. We’ve stripped it back in terms of décor as we want the focus to be on the artists, allowing people to really get lost in the music without distractions of decorative bells and whistles. A lot of work has gone into the new venue over the last couple of months and Lost Lane’s prime central location at the bottom of Grafton Street in the heart of the city is going to promise must see gigs, up and coming acts, and late-night residencies every weekend. We’re excited for the launch and to finally unveil Dublin’s new live music venue.”
