Break for the Border Bar & Club
Break for the Border Bar & Club is one of the largest and longest established venues in Dublin, having recently undergone a multi-million euro makeover - enhancing its broad appeal, the new Break for the Border is modern, stylish, relaxing and comfortable and has an amazing attention to detail in the Mediterranean influenced design.

The nightclub is Moulin Rouge meets Las Vegas! There is dance floor for those who feel like a bop or else there's lots of comfy leather seats for the people watchers. There is a stage positioned between 2 bars for the live acts that regularly play at Break for the Border.

Its definitely the fun loving crowd that Break for the Border attracts that really sets it apart, the busy bar and nightclub is buzzing at the weekend with locals and visitors enjoying 70s, 80s and 90s music making it the number one party venue in Dublin.

Also popular with sports fans who enjoy a pint while watching the game on the big screens. During the week Break for the Border provides an excellent back drop for a value meal and a cosy drink, sinking into comfy leather seats and soothing Mediterranean décor.

Break for the Border is home to Dublin's premier gay night, Glitz happens every Tuesday night from 11pm. Glitz features regular live acts and a host of stars have graced our stage... Jason Donovan, Liberty X, Sinnita, Caroline Reid and Booty Love to mention a few!
