15 Things You'll Recognise If You Frequent Pygmalion Too Often

Pygmalion opened its doors back in 2009 on Paddy's Day of all days, and it has taken Dublin by storm ever since. 

Situated on one of Dublin's deadliest streets, South William Street, it always seems to attract the weirdest and most wonderful clientele. Ideal for both day time eats and night time drinks, Pyg suits just about anyone who enjoys a good atmosphere.

But as with every place, it comes with its quirks...

1. No one knowing how the sink works in the ladies loo

Damn foot pedals. Where do they think we are, the Mediterranean?! 

2. The obvious rollovers of a Sunday

Sunglasses and dry shampoo all round.

3. Twits plugging in their phones under the far couch outside

Stepping over everyone en route. 

4. Looking at the menu and seeing nothing other than 'nachos'

Surely they count as one of your five a day?

5. Seeing the exact same Dublin faces strut up and down Coppinger Row every time

It's like they're in a cult or something.

6. People chuckling over the Pygtails menu...

...then swiftly putting the menu down when they realise they’re €13 a pop.

7. Then picking it back up for the 2-for-1 deal

€6.50? Sure, you're practically making money!

8. Bar staff you've definitely gotten with on a scauldy night out before

Trying to keep your head down and order a pint simultaneously.

9. Drunk Tinder dates swanning in from Coppinger Row

Carrying on the drunken love buzz, one inebriated step at a time.

10. At least eight of these fringes per square metre

And together, they make one full fringe.

11. The reckless friend in every group coming back from the bar with a shisha

You leave them alone for one second...

12. Glam huns drinking espresso martinis

Draped in fur, ripped jeans and boyfriends.

13. Seeing someone's ID/driver's licence/age card strewn on the dancefloor


14. French accents as far as the ear can hear

Just waiting for you to fall in love with them.

15. And people 'going for one' only to still be there 8 hours later

Every bloody time!
