On September 22nd at 8pm join us in the Sugar Club for a very special celebration of one of Dublin’s longest running, most fun club nights and the driving force that made it all happen — Martin Thomas. Bringing you “music with words for your dancing pleasure” from the original Handbag DJs as well as some very special guests. Proceeds in aid of The 3 Amigos & The Martin Thomas Trust in association with Jigsaw, in support of Youth Mental Health.

Strictly Handbag was for many years, and could possibly still be Dublin’s longest running club night. It was what Monday nights were all about. A night, where even if you went out on your tod, you always knew, you wouldn’t be short of company. Who would have thought that Monday nights would become one of the busiest club nights of the week in Dublin, especially in the pre boom 90’s? Strictly Handbag in the Kitchen and then in Rí-Rá changed the face of clubbing in the capital forever and changed all perceptions of socialising for a whole generation with its mix of 80’s music with words combined with clever and innovative promotion offering an alternative to the burgeoning if repetitive heavy dance culture of the time.
