My Dublin: Peter Glam Odell

Tv presenter/waiter (he says)

Inspired by Alan Hughes in The Dubliner Peter wants to tell everyone about 'my Dublin' although he knows very little about it.

Outdoors- I like to go to Ivy Gardens and look at all the magpies. Sometimes I sit on the steps and have my picture taken (by Bird.)



Restaurants I like Soho restaurant on Georges Street as they do good things. Also The Front Lounge has a cheap and delicious lunch menu - chicken quesadilla for six euro and it's FIT.

Food I like to eat the triple pack of cheese pizza from Lidl and then add my own toppings like fresh garlic and basil and chilli flakes. yum.

Shopping I like to go to the Tower records but I don't really go shopping.

Dublin Ups It's very quiet and there are cute places to walk and they like to do Christmas lights.

And Downs The buses are terrifying, once there was someone smoking crack.

Area around South William street and Fade Street and Wiclow street, all the little shoppers.

Dublin Heroes Rory with the story on Spin 1038 but if Dolly Parton lived in Dublin it'd be her.

And Villians The Scaries. They are mainly youths in tracksuits and I can't understand what they say. Also the people who drive horse drawn carriages are scary.

Hobbies I like to be a lazybones and hibernate but I also like to go on adventures and make things up and canoodle.

My best trait My love of kittens.


Work I start at usually 6 o clock and ask people what drinks they want to drink. When they ask me where I'm from I put on a thick southern accent and tell them I'm from Nashville. I feel like Sookie Stackhouse.

Press I just picked up the Dubliner today, it was pretty good and I like to read the other magazines.

Music Mostly Belle and Sebastian at the moment. Still.

TV and Radio On the tellybox I watch.. well i'm not fussy really. If I listen to the radio I LISTEN TO SPIN!

Theatre I don't go to the theatre unless someone does Pet Shop Boys The Musical.


You can catch Peter at the Frontlounge every weeknight pratically and almost every weekend night as well.
