We've been eyeing up this spot on George's Street for the past while wondering what was going on inside.

And now we've got the deets!

Here's what we know so far...

1. It won't actually be a store where you can buy drugs

Talk about false advertising!

Sorry to disappoint, guys, but it will actually be a "new Bohemian styled Georges St bar. A decadent basement dive bar with an essence of illegality hence it's charm."

2. The Chelsea Drug Store is a close relation of the Market Bar


The Market Bar uploaded these 'work in progress' pictures recently.

Just look at those light fixtures!

6. We're kinda confused as to what the vibe will actually be

Georges Street has long been the bohemian quarter of Dublin, this new ground floor bar The Chelsea Drug Store will embrace this by being fashionable without being a slave to it, arty without being pretentious and classical without being dated.

Not pretentious?


Joking aside, we're looking forward to having a snoop around the place when they open later this month!
