Legendary Pod Club on sale for €6M

Any Dub will be devastated to hear that John Reynolds has put the Pod up for sale. The Old Harcourt Street Station licensed complex is on sale with a guide price of €6 million. The venue has been lying dormant for some time now. Passing by the venue is always tough for the die hard Pod & Redbox lovers and known as “one of the best” clubs to party in Dublin.

The popular club formerly known as the “Redbox”, was one of the legendary clubs attracting big name DJ’s such as Carl Cox, Deepdish, Jeff Mills, Laurent Garnier to name a few. It also had strong residency slots with local talent like David De Valera and the Mongo events in the garden. Who doesn’t remember those gigs?

The A Grade 1 listed building, measuring about 2,625sq m (28,255sq ft) is being sold by tender and bids must be submitted by June 8th.

More recently, the venue was set out as three bars and late night venues: the Chocolate Bar, Crawdaddy and Tripod. These venues closed a number of years ago to much of our disappoint.

Andrew’s Lane another popular venue in Dublin sold for €4M so we think this is an absolute bargain for the Pod site.

Let’s hope the new owner brings back the good old days for Dublin clubbers and resurrects a new style “Redbox”.
