Otherside Festival is the most recent addition to the Irish festival circuit and has revealed an ambitious lineup of comedy and music. In addition, they’ve now launched a banquet-style restaurant called ‘Zhug’ hosted by the team at Happy Endings.
According to a release, the menu uses ‘the best quality local ingredients to create Middle Eastern and North African-inspired dishes. The “Ultimate Dining Experience” comes under festival add-ons and can now be purchased for sixty euros per person.
Festival-goers can book a table with their friends to experience next-level festival dining alongside cocktails on Friday at 18:00, Saturday from 16:00 to 18:00 or Sunday at 18:00. Table space is strictly limited and liable to sell out. The team recommends booking in advance to secure a table.
Happy Endings made a flavourful name for themselves after a month-long pop-up became a permanent venue faster than any of their peers. The team behind it have always taken inspiration from East Asian food, so this move to Middle Eastern and North Africa looks set to be as full of flavour as their sell-out Jimmy Burgers.
Otherside doesn’t believe that festivals mean lesser quality regarding food and drink. Bahay, Goats Gruff and Bolt Burger are all high-quality local food vendors known for their freshness. There will also be a full-on sit-down restaurant for brunch and evening sittings. You’ll also find pop-up bars serving proper cocktails, wine and ice cold draught.
Based in Rock Farm, Slane Co. Meath, the three-day festival will showcase eclectic music, arts and comedy. Running from July 8-10 with stages hosted by The Cobblestone Bar, District Magazine, and The Midnight Disco and Melodic.
Tickets start at a hundred and twenty euros and are available via Ticketmaster but are strictly limited to only 3,000.
