Temporary Pleasure to launch pop-up club in Dublin next year

In the face of a declining club culture, Temporary Pleasure are coming through with a “temporary club project” in the new year.

It’s no secret that the capital needs alternative avenues for the preservation of its declining nightlife culture. Covid-19, restrictions and ambivalence from policy makers has made creative responses more pressing than ever and Temporary Pleasure has revealed it is developing a pop-up venue in Dublin next year.

The “Temporary Club Project” will run for six weeks in Dublin in September of 2022. In a statement they’ve said, “In response to the disappearance of the Irish nightclub, Temporary Pleasure will transform of a vacant inner-city space into an ephemeral, site-specific venue.”

The collective of architects, event producers and other creatives aim to design the premises to address community needs with the events likely to feature local acts. Funding comes courtesy of the Arts Council of Ireland with the project staying true to TP’s goal of focusing on grass-roots and community-based initiatives.

It comes after the collective held a workshop in Barcelona last month where participants put together a DIY club.
