It cannot be denied that Copper Face Jacks is an Irish institution since it opened it's doors in 1996, a right of passage one might say. From student nights, hen parties, stags, birthday bashes, even election celebrations...Coppers' dance floor has hosted it all - it's pulling power is a force to be reckoned. Copper Face Jacks has it all and here it is, from A to Z...'
A is for ... Apps
The CFJ app keeps you up to date on events and puts you on the guest list for free entry on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Coppers also uses the app 'Orderella,' whereby you can....wait for it.... order your drinks on your mobile phone to skip the queue (but bank accounts beware, it is contactless payment!)
B is for ... Babylon
"How many miles to Babylon??" - Only 0.4 miles to be exact! One must take proper soakage precautions before the dreaded morning after, and where better than kebab havan - Babylon.
C is for ... Craic
Sure it's only mighty in here! Scrubbing off that stamp may be your compulsory mission the next day, but you cannot deny the pure savage-ness of the previous night.. Coopers-you legend!
E is for ... Employment Status
This epic nightclub is a place where everyone is welcome, although if you are a nurse, teacher or member of the gardaí síochana you are probably going to feel a little more at home.
F is for ... Flashback
And I am not talking about the ones you will be getting throughout the next day.. Walking into the pop classic tracks of Coppers is like taking a trip back in time when there were no bills, exams, kids, work... those carefree fun days when all you had to do was bag a lift to the local nightclub and party into the wee hours with no fear of the alarm clock of responsibility waking you before midday.
G is for ... Gold Card
The prestige attached to these cards is high - they allow the lucky cardholder to skip the queue and walk in free of charge with a friend. With only a few hundred in circulation and one card up for sale online for €500, you may need to put forth your appeal for one in your college thesis...oh wait... someone did that already!
H is for ... Harcourt Street
A relationship is a two way street - so is Harcourt Street - it's a sign!
I is for ...In Theatres Near You
Yes, that's right, there is actually a CFJ musical. The stage production 'Coppers Uncovered' ran in three theatres last year! In fair Jackson Court, where we lay our scene...
J is for .... Jackson Court
Did someone say residents bar?!
K is for ... Key Questions
All of which you will ask and will be answered with 'sure why not' - Coppers? Shot? Cash back? Shot? Kebab? My place?
L is for ... Love Stories
Plenty a relationship started with a stumble into Coppers. Last year saw a competition to find the best 'met in Coppers' couple who were jetted off to Rome for Valentines' Day - Coppers flying the true love flag #legends
M is for ... Maniac 2000
The true national anthem of Ireland. No night is complete until she walks across that dancefloor dressed to kill..
N is for ... Never Again
The two words that make the hangover feel that slight bit better and mend your broken dignity...that is until 1am the following Saturday night !
O is for ... Outkast
The models of kool hit the cobbles of Coppers after their Electric Picnic performance. Not only that, but the boys had to queue just like everyone else, with the bouncers reportedly saying 'Who??? Nah, they have to queue like everyone else.' Imagine walking by Andre 3000 with your CFJ Gold Card...I know what I'd be saying 'Hey Ya!'
P is for ... Pedicabs
Sure how else would you travel to the street of Harcourt.
Q is for ... Queues
And there is plenty of them... but where better than the queues of Coppers to form new friendships and swap numbers..
R is for ... Reunited
. . . . . and it feels so good!!! Imagine the scene... returning from the bar with drinks after queuing for an age, and you have lost EVERYONE....the panic, the anxiety, the drinks are getting heavier, the crowd is getting busier...and then...
S is for ... "See yiz in Coppers"
Thanks Bryan Cullen for the four words that sum up L I F E
T is for ... The-shift
Let's face it, it's harder to NOT get the-shift in here.
U is for ... Unseen Hands
Forget Loch Ness, the myth of the unseen hands of Coppers is one that all girls know and have their own version of. Scary - but true.
V is for ... Leo Vradker
I mean if it's the venue of choice for one of country's leaders to party that says it all
W is for ... Westlife
Cheesy pop tunes like these is what this place is renowned and cherished for. Get ready to crank out some questionable dance moves to everything from the 5ive megamix to Spice Girls and Bewitched.
X is for ... Xmas Pub Crawl
Whether you make it to the twelfth pub or not, Coppers will definitely be the final port of call to see the flickering lights of your jumper.
Y is for .... Yearly ski trip
Next March sees the fourth annual CFJ ski trip which will see the Rubberbandits heading the entertainment in Livigno, Italy. As if all this was not enough, when you partake in this snow-filled extravaganza, you go home with the limited edition 'money can't by' Coppers jersey... this has to be the next best thing to the Coppers Gold Card.
Z is for... Zoo
There have been many reviews across the great web about our beloved Coppers, but one Yelp review is by far the best "a Zoo where you can't touch the animals"
