Anyone who's been to music festival Electric Picnic in recent years will know of the incredibly eclectic and trendy stage that is Salty Dog. 

Designed like a ship, and home to some really cool newcomers and deadly music veterans, this stage is an experience that just can't be relived at home.

Or, at least, couldn't... Until now. 

Behold, the Salty Dog music venue, located right smack bang in the middle of Rathmines. It's going in where the restaurant Toast used to be, 196 Lower Rathmines Road to be exact, and judging by its huge following every year at the festival - it's set to be a winner. 

The interior is based on the inside of an 18th century ship, similar to its Electric Picnic attire, and will be open seven nights a week.

It will be first and foremost a music venue, but not typically overpriced like its fellow competitors. Instead, they’re going to host surprise acts each Friday and Saturday evenings using musicians they’ve built up contact with from their Picnic days. During the week, we have residencies and club nights to look forward to.

The pub will also be one of the main establishments in association with the area’s upcoming Canalaphonic festival, with loads of big acts promised in Rathmines for the weekend. 

Setting up shop September 9, this set-up is a huge boost for Rathmines, and for music lovers all over Dublin.

Until then, we can go check the beloved EP stage out, before it moves into its permanent home in South Dublin.
