I visited Chez le Fab for the Thomond Sessions on Friday night, 10 March. The Glimmermen, Patrick O’Brien, and my legend of a cousin Pa Reidy were gigging. Loved the vintage vibes and quirky decor.

I really like the idea of this place, it's definitely something that Limerick needs, but it's trying to do too much and then is falling a bit short on the basics.
