UPDATE: THIS IS NOW THE LOCATION OF THE RICHMOND RESTAURANT
“Owner & Manager Russell Wilde & Head Chef David O'Byrne breathe new life into the old Gigs Place premises in Portobello, offering contemporary cooking in a warm & casual dining environment”
I will visit in the near future.
Here is a description that I came across online - "If you were passing The Gig's Place on a bus, you'd be certain that it was a business that has long since closed, given that it is always closed during the day, and that the facade looks a little bit on the unloved side"
The Gigs Place on Lower Richmond Street opened in 1970 and was described in a rental advertisement (early 2012) as an “iconic venue for late night revellers who want something better than ‘fast food’.”
