What: The Irish House part deux, second floor, 30, next to Rhythm House, K Dubhash Marg, Kala Ghoda.

Taking over the building that once housed Pan Asian restaurant Joss, this second floor bar will be perched atop a first level banquet hall and a ground floor Oriental restaurant that will be launched by the same hospitality company.
When: Dub(lin) step slated for the first week of November.

These are tricked out with fancy bedroom, bathroom, TV space and kitchen. Next stop, the main concert stage. GleePS!
