Brand new nightclub opens off Grafton Street this weekend

Hyde has further expanded its high-end venue offering with the launch of ‘Seek’ Nightclub

Opening of a new stylish nightclub is welcome news for the Dublin nightlife scene

Hyde, the new four-storey Rooftop Club Bar off Grafton Street, has announced the further expansion of its high-end venue offering with the launch of ‘Seek’ Nightclub.

Hyde is a modern, vibrant, and stylish venue boasting one of Dublin’s finest locations on Lemon Street, Dublin 2, adjacent to Grafton Street. The drinks and dining spot offers a different concept on each of its four floors, the standout arguably being its enormous rooftop bar, with views spanning right across the city to the Dublin mountains.

The chic four-storey, rooftop venue is like nothing Ireland has seen before and was inspired by similar concepts seen in cities like London and New York.

The second floor has been secretly under construction since the beginning of this year and the team at Hyde are excited to open the doors of Seek nightclub on 6 May. The club has been fitted with a state-of-the-art Harmonic design sound system, guaranteeing the music quality to be one of the best in the country. And in control of the music every weekend will be a mix of Dublin’s most exciting DJ’s.

To ensure guests are wowed and definitely in the party mood, Seek will also be bringing club elements regularly spotted in high-end clubs overseas, to Dublin. Roaming secret entertainers will be booked to join the party every weekend, from percussionists, to dancers, to vocalists.

According to the Irish nightlife activist group ‘Give Us The Night’ Ireland’s club scene has diminished at an alarming rate over the past two decades, with 4/5 Irish nightclubs (or 84%) all closing since the year 2000. This has left many partygoers not knowing where to go, or not generally having many options.

According to the venue, a particular problem has been for working professionals over the age of 25 who want a late-night dance venue. This venue tends to find that many of the few available nightclubs host a crowd that seems far too young.

This is the audience Seek @ Hyde has been specifically designed to cater for. From high-end, chic furnishings and décor choices, to one of Ireland’s best nightclub sound systems, Seek will cater for the Dublin working professionals.

Flowing over four floors, Hyde can host up to 600 guests and includes a restaurant, wine bar, cocktail bar, rooftop terrace and now a nightclub.

Pre ‘clubbing’ guests can enjoy Cocktails@Hyde, where a variety of the finest cocktails are on offer, and you can also enjoy delicious bistro style food (there is also a rooftop brunch menu). As the night progresses guests will discover Seek as they venture down a secret corridor to the nightclub.

For those wanting to experience Dublin’s largest rooftop experience, they can enjoy a drink and a panoramic view of Dublin at Rooftop@Hyde, where they will find two heated rooftop terraces, offering a large array of beverages in a stylish, yet more casual setting.

Head of operations, Clive Powers said: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of Seek and offer a new luxury nightlife destination in the heart of Dublin city, as well as expand our new music and hospitality concept at Hyde, as it continues to evolve as a world-class destination.

“The Dublin late-night scene has had a rough few years so we are excited to revive the Dublin Nightlife scene with the opening of Seek and bring it into a new era. Particularly for those working professionals 25+ who feel like they haven’t had a nightclub of their own in this city.”

Seek will open every Friday and Saturday from 10pm to 2.30am with an entry fee starting at €5 per guest. Guests can upgrade their experience to a VIP booth, which includes bottle service and a dedicated host for their table throughout the night. Premium bottles of Grey Goose, to magnums of Belvedere vodka and Champagne range from €200-€500, depending on the booth and VIP experience level requested.

The @Hyde concept is strictly over 23’s with a smart dress code enforced at all times. For more information, visit www.hyde-dublin.com or follow @hyde.ie on Instagram.
