A Perfect Date Night Set in the Creative Quarter
Dublin’s Creative Quarter is a hub of the city’s most talented creatives. As well as being home to some of the city’s best bars, shops and restaurants, the Creative Quarter is the perfect place for date night from start to finish.
Here at DublinTown we love to work with both up and coming and established creatives within Dublin City Centre, not just through DublinTown but through Dublin Fashion and Dine in Dublin as well. So when we were approached about promoting the Creative Quarter as the ultimate date night spot we were happy to support!
In this shoot, Dublin Fashion Bloggers Lawson Mpame and Yasmin Hamouda exude style and elegance whilst taking us on a date night in one of Dublin’s most glamorous establishments, Farrier and Draper.
The epitome of old school glamour, Farrier and Draper is composed of two rooms filled with art deco opulence – The Georgian Room and The Gallery. The Georgian Room offers all day food service and late night drinks. Enjoy music from the resident DJ’s every weekend until 2.30am.
There is an extensive cocktail menu from you to chose from including many reinvented classics. It is also home to La Cucina – a rustic style Italian restaurant.
Both Yasmin and Lawson found their looks in the heart of the Creative Quarter, with Lawson wearing a hounds tooth/check and alpaca fabric double breasted suit from Louis Copeland and Sons, with a black shirt, collar chain and Barker black leather tassel loafers from Fitzpatricks shoes, while Yasmin is wearing an ‘Arababella’ gown from Starla Boutique.
We love the style of this shoot and how it oozes old world Hollywood glamour. We wish all our date nights were this fab! Where’s your favourite spot to shop or dine for your date night? Drop us a line and let us know!
