John Keelan is a sterling pal of the LGBTQ+ community. The unassuming doorman at Panti Bar, Sunday Social and many other city staples has always been kind and considerate to all concerned and now he brings his big hug to his own establishment.
“The aim of All My Friends is to bring something new into old Dublin by replicating the authenticity and diversity of the Liberties in a local, neighbourhood setting.”
He wants it to be a “caregiver to the community… Everyone will be welcome if they buy into the diversity and open-mindedness of the bar and its clientele.”
With Niall Sweeney on logo and design duties, it will be a most welcome extension of the queer heartlands and is set to open over the coming weeks.
61-63 Meath St, Dublin 8.
