From 1969 ads for The Clarence Hotels “Irish Cottage Cabaret” and Bartley Dunnes, the “Rendezvous of the intelligentsia… beatniks…” October 4, 2012Posted by irishelectionliterature in History, Irish History.
Found an old guide book to Dublin from the sixties at home recently. Amongst the items these two Ads one for Bartley Dunnes and another for The Clarence Hotels “Irish Cottage Cabaret”.
The Blurb for Bartley Dunnes is brilliant
“Left bank mood. Rendezvous of the intelligentsia, Bohemian, literati, theatre personalities, socialites, beatniks, artists , aristocrats and gay fashionable young ladies…. from followers of Hippocrates to ambitious young advocates”
Then the idea of the now trendy Clarence Hotel being the venue of “Irish Cottage Cabaret” is great.
