Admittedly, it’s been a long time since we’ve done the roll-over to the early house but we have fond, if somewhat hazy memories, of shards of light streaming into The Chancery through the stained glass window as the jukebox lashed out some hits and the topsy-turvy togetherness of sesh heads and Indian tattooed counter drinkers gelled for a hot second.
Alas, The Chancery is currently shuttered and we’re not sure if the new buyers will have an appetite for utilising the historic licence.
And now The Windjammer may well go the same way as it’s on the market with an asking price of €1.6m.
Its sale blurb notes that, “on the first floor there is a well-appointed, own door, two-bedroom apartment with a private roof garden”.
A private roof garden on top and early house on ground level – now that’s a heady cocktail bound to make someone new friends.
