ABOUT P.J. O’Brien’s

P.J's Sidebar at Southbank adjoins P.J.O'Brien's Irish Pub with a raised stage for presentations or entertainment and a private bar. Your guests can also take advantage of the live music in the main bar every night of the week!

Over the years it has established a solid reputation as one of Southgate's leading function venues, being the perfect setting for corporate events (meetings, launches, seated breakfasts, lunches and dinners), cocktail parties, engagements, and Christmas Functions.

Offering both exclusive and semi-private hire availability with capacity for intimate gatherings for 20 to larger groups of 180, P.J's Sidebar is a generous space with flexible layout options over two sections; The Upper Lounge and the Lower Deck.

The atmosphere here is warm, relaxed and inviting with enough charm and style to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests, and the menus have been designed to cater for both cocktail-style and seated functions with a great selection of complementary beverage packages to suit most budgets.

The menus are in keeping with our Irish heritage with dishes including classic Guinness Pie as well as lighter canape options such as fresh oysters. Beverage package options are designed to cater to all budgets with all options including Guinness on tap.

Let the friendly, professional staff take care of your next corporate function, private event, or wedding!
