Save Bewleys, Dublin's legendary coffee shop

Bewleys is back! Dublin's legendary coffee house regarded by many as the 'front parlour' of the city and which operated continuously since 1840, closed its doors on Tuesday 30 November 2004

A campaign was launched with the aim of saving the unique and historic Bewleys cafe and re-opening it on a permanent basis.

In mid-May 2005 the Grafton Street cafe re-opened under new management. But the other Bewleys cafes in Dublin remain closed.

Two of my photographs were used at the top of the page on the home page of the Bewleys Cafe website. In the top left: front facade with blurred passers and top middle: View looking down from the balcony. The photos were acquired by Sherland Entertainments, who manage an interesting selection of clubs, bars and restaurants in Dublin.

Congratulations on the re-opening of Bewleys and long may it remain Dublin's 'front parlour'.
