What’s On

We love a good night out, especially when there’s something happening. You can pick any date in the calendar and be guaranteed that Bad Bobs will have some of the best live music in Dublin, with artists taking to the stage every night of the week.

Whether you’re a regular or are visiting Temple Bar for the first time, we like to treat everyone’s night out as a big deal. That’s why we have performances every night of the week and DJs spinning live at the weekend.

If you’re looking to experience what a real night out in Dublin is like and want to avoid getting stuck in a tourist trap, you need to come down to Bad Bobs. We’ll show you how real Dubliners have a night out.
And with the premium quality of our food and drink, you don’t need to go far to get a good meal either. Here’s some information about what’s on in Temple Bar when you visit Bad Bobs.

Live Music in Temple Bar Monday to Sunday

With live music every day of the week, you’re always guaranteed a good time at Bad Bobs. Our stage times for artists are:

Live Performers
Monday to Thursday: 7.30pm to Close
Friday – Saturday: 7:30pm to 10pm
Sunday: 10pm – Close

On weeknights we have local artists take to the stage to showcase some of the best homegrown talent. You’ll hear some of their great material and a good dose of familiar favourites to provide the perfect backdrop for the evening.

Friday & Saturday: 10pm to Close

Every Friday and Saturday we have DJs take over the bar to kick things up a gear. They’ll play nothing but party classics and bangers all night long, getting you well and truly in the mood to dance.

We also have a live saxophonist until the early hours to really get the weekend party vibes going.

Music comes first

If you’re someone visiting Temple Bar for the first time, you’ll be searching for an authentic pub experience. As one of Dublin’s top live music pubs we put an emphasis on music first, so you’re always guaranteed to hear a good tune over sports commentary on the TV. (And don’t worry if you’re out to watch a match. We still show games on our TVs while we have music on.)

No cover charge

Unlike other pubs in Temple Bar, we never have a cover charge on the door. You’re always guaranteed free entry every night of the week, and with the eclectic nightlife in Dublin, we break away from the norm to make every visit special.

No inflated prices

It’s our guarantee to customers that we won’t charge hand over fist for a good pint. We keep all our drinks at normal city centre prices and don’t make things more expensive just because we’re in Temple Bar.

It’s one of the reasons why customers love drink deals like our famous 2 for €16 cocktails all week, where we always have premium ingredients that our mixologists use to create perfectly crafted quality cocktails.

What are you waiting for?

We guarantee that everyone will have the night out they need when visiting Bad Bobs. So come on down and get a flavour of Temple Bar with a good dash of Dublin hospitality.
