If you’ve ever been on a heavy night out in Dublin, the chances are you will have stumbled into the giant Spar shop on the corner of Dame Street and Georges Street, known as Gay Spar.
It’s become a regular 2am haunt for many a late-night reveller and an important part of the night itself. You have to ask yourself- If you don’t go to Gay Spar at the end of a night out, did you even go out?
