The doors open this Friday.
Well-known Cork publican Liam O’Shea has taken over the former Nana’s premises at 12 Douglas Street, giving the facade a colourful facelift for his first solo venture, The Hyde Out.
The name is inspired by Douglas Hyde, the first president of Ireland – a nod to Douglas Street.
Liam, who started off in the bar industry when he was 14 as a glass cleaner and managed The Idle Hour for 20 years before moving to The Pier Head Inn in Blackrock, is looking forward to running his own bar for the first time.
With over four decades of experience, Liam and his team are promising “curated cocktails, exceptional pints, craft beers, and a selected wine collection to cater to diverse tastes.”
“The Hyde Out is designed to cater to a spectrum of interests,” they told us.
“Sports enthusiasts will find their home away from home, with state-of-the-art screens, including a projector for the big games, and an inviting atmosphere that ensures every game for the upcoming Rugby World Cup is an event to remember.

“However, the excitement doesn’t stop at sports; The Hyde Out is primed to become a hub for the music scene, hosting a range of electrifying performances and themed nights.
“Among these, the anticipated Gin & Jazz nights promise to offer a one-of-a-kind experience in Cork City’s nightlife landscape.”
The Hyde Out will be open seven days a week from this weekend on.
