Sunday, 31 December

With all the high-jinx of 2016, saying goodbye to some musical legends and hello to orange faced world leaders and the like, we’ve decided we want to send off this year with a bang. So, we’re turning New Year’s Eve into New YEAH’S Eve and we’re throwing a mega bash on Sunday, 31 December.

First up, we’ve got the stupendously deadly The Hot Sprockets coming to blow the roof off our gaff and to kiss 2017 right on the face! The Hot Sprockets are five brethren who came together with a shared love of rock n’ roll music; the kind that is haunted by the ghost of electric dirt. Take the good-time revolutionary spirit of MC5, simmer it down to the sounds of bittersweet soul yearning, add some rough-edged Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and you are somewhere close to the cosmic transcendental realm of the Sprockets. The place where The Hot Sprockets are at their best is on a stage, performing for an audience. Live, their take-no-prisoners, white hot, bone breaking style is guaranteed to make you feel like you’re strapped into a rollercoaster that’ll you never want to get off.

We’re just as excited to announce that special guests on the night are The Fontaines and Free Sunshine Acid. Tickets for this show are just €15 and are on sale now, so grab a ticket, and sit back – safe in the knowledge that your New Year’s Eve is sorted. Get ready for the ride, as The Hot Sprockets put their own stamp on rock n’ roll. This is more than a band, it’s a force of nature. ROCK IT LIKE A HOT SPROCKET RIGHT INTO 2017!!

As always, we also have a massive FREE Admission Party upstairs, too! The Workman’s Club FREE NYE Party features 4 bars, 2 rooms fill to the brim with tunes AND 6 DJ sets – all for the princely sum of NO EUROS.

In the No. 9 Bar check out alternative tunes, psych sounds, Manchester bands and a load of indie classics spun by a very fine selection of The Workman’s finest Residents. Yes, you read right!  Trev, Tony Bones, Steven Gannon and Rob Smith will be spinning for a whole 5 hours – keeping those of you who love songs with words and a heap of guitars very very happy! PLUS – as an extra bonus, Dublin producer The Swedish Railway Orchestra will kick off the night’s proceedings at 9pm by performing tracks from the 2 albums he released in 2016.

In Room 2 (up and to the right) we’ve got house and disco locked down! We’ve selected some more of our super-fine in-house dance merchants to keep you dancing all night long. From 10.30 the “Groovement Soul” boys will team up with Seany Bee aka 4Ward Grad to spin a delicious blend of disco, house and even more disco!

So, that’s it in a NYE shaped nutshell. We’ve got the absolutely savage The Hot Sprockets kicking 2016 to touch, with the awesome The Fontaines and Free Sunshine Acid as special guests (€15 / Doors 8 pm)

We’ve got the FREE ADMISSION NYE Party kicking off upstairs. That’s 4 Bars, great Ttunes and FREE admission all night long. Plus, if you prefer the chats, pull up a saddle in Bison Bar & BBQ and choose from over 150 whiskies while you usher in the new year.
