Overview
More
Electric is the space that approaches nightlife differently. Galway’s boho culture has found a home in Electric's innovative nightlife space in 3 unique rooms. Electric - the main room, the main floor and the main attraction. A bohemian ballroom for up to 800 people, staging a variety of musical styles & performances - from evening cabaret, String Quartets to big room dance acts like Moodyman, Camelphat, Seth Troxler, Bicep, Omar S & Dimitri from Paris. The Glasshouse is our flagship cocktail bar. A little bit darker, a little bit more secretive, a little bit more late bar with a patchwork of vintage styles. Finish off your evening in our rooftop garden with a margarita slushie as the sun comes down & the volume goes up in an indoor-outdoor drinking, smoking & dancing space. Factory - we are committed to fostering the underground & support local emerging and established talent. Thinkers and drinkers, dancers and chancers – all raving under one roof #AllNightLong

I went with a group of colleagues and being of the slightly older generation felt a little out of place. In saying that we did find a good place to sit, have drinks and even we danced! Music definitely improved as the evening progressed and...More

This is one of the cooler spots I've been to in Europe. It's fairly trendy, but not pretentious. The inside has a sort of DIY-meets-nightclub feel. I really enjoyed it. Lots of seating as well. The music on the weekends is spot on. They also...More
