This area of town is set to become a hive of activity as a slew of beautiful (and expensive) new apartments are popping up all over the place, some of which have penthouses with the best views in the city. The Quality Hotel has just opened it’s doors next to Vertigo, and the new state-of-the-art Grand Canal Theatre is already under construction.
Built on two levels, Vertigo offers a more intimate area on the mezzanine floor, which is complete with seating booths and soft lighting, in contrast to the double height space in the main bar area.
Among the guests on the evening were Avril Collins and Norman Pratt, Jonothan Sultan and John McKibbin, artist Freddie Jones, David Faulkner, FM104’s Jodie King and Kate Candon and Rebecca O’Neill of TV3.
Needless to say I was suffering from Vertigo the next day.
