Gilbert&Wright

What, you may ask, do superstar David Bowie, jazz legend BB Jackson, ‘70s memorabilia like vinyl record turntables and comfy seating all have in common?

The answer is they’re all found — in some shape or form — in hat, you may ask, do superstar David Bowie, jazz legend BB Jackson, ‘70s memorabilia like vinyl record turntables and comfy seating all have in common?

The answer is they’re all found — in some shape or form — in the Gilbert & Wright Wine Bar in Swords and the Gilbert & Wright Living Room in Malahide, two of the most sought-after night spots on Fingal Dublin!

Gilbert & Wright is a uniquely different concept on the social entertainment scene, with two locations providing relaxation in an informal yet intimate setting with a distinctly ‘70s retro vibe to them.

Whether you lived through the Seventies or simply appreciate the cultural aspects of that decade, the Gilbert & Wright offering will raise an eyebrow or two and bring a smile to your face! From older-style wooden floors and occasional shag-pile carpets to free-standing lamps with their strange-shaped shades and stacked sound speakers/woofers, this is the ‘70s re-visited in no uncertain way.

Music icons of the era — from Blondie to Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix to The Doors — feature on specially commissioned wall paintings while framed album covers and platinum record awards adorn other walls. Funky chintzy wallpaper — covered in one case with ducks flying in formation! — add to the distinctive ‘70s feel.

Mix ‘n match couches with soft seating and leopard-skin cushion covers, a manual typewriter, old dial-up telephones, an assortment of tables and chairs and other memorabilia are all reminiscent of the Seventies era.

No matter what your preference of drink, Gilbert & Wright can satisfy most tastes — complemented by casual bistro-style food — an experience enhanced by classic music of the Seventies.

To use the vernacular of the time, ‘be there or be square’!
