Gingerbread House Cork

Gingerbread House Cork

[B]Im a Forth year student in an Interior Architecture course in Dublin. For my final project I have decided to use the Gingerbread House on Paul Street Cork (hope people know it!!!). I have decided to change its use into maybe a bar with restaurant on Ground floor, and an area for Gigs and stand up comedians. Maybe incorporating retail or late nite coffee area??? for those who may not wish to drink!!!!

Conept would be influenced by the culture and the music, since it is located at Rory Gallagher Place. I would also aim for the older crowd, over 23's as I find there are not many bars to go to that are not dominated by first years and 18 year olds!!!! (could i be wrong????) I need feed back on my ideas.... those of you in Cork!!!! would really appreciate this! Would help me a lot and become more confident in my design!

thanks :)

A Jazz bar would be cool - I think it's that bricky charm of the place.

The interaction with the Square caused by the doughnut selling was great, IMO. Try to have a good connection with the square.


I like the late night coffee shop idea.

They used to run late night dance music things for a while with no alcohol being served. Ended last year I think. I can't see a jazz bar working in Cork. If you can't find an over 23s pub in Cork it's cos you're not looking!! Most pubs on Oliver Plunkett St cater for 23 plus crowd as do all pubs on Parnell Sq and most on MacCurtain St. Like the gigs and comedy part of your plan - Coburg St is a bit out of the way so could work. I'd look at Jay Bourke and Eoin Feely's pubs (The Bodega in Cork and the Globe and Market Bar in Dublin in particular) for tips, because they cater well for that crowd and I think it would appeal to Cork crowd. If you're looking for a restaurant idea, look at Mackeral in Bewleys in Dublin (again it's Jay and Eoin). Small place, extremely busy. Nowhere I can think of in Cork city that does fish.

Sounds like a geat idea. Have always thought that building would support such uses. There is definitely a market for it...
