Chinese New Year Party hosted at Tramline Hosted by Latin Mix Dublin
We’ve been waiting for it all year but Chinese New Year is upon us! So why not welcome in the Year of the Rat in style by attending TRAMLINE’s Chinese New Year Party?

As the pair arrived at the finish line, the Rat jumped down and landed ahead of the fox, earning him first place in the race. The Rat is associated with the midnight hour so it could not be more appropriate to stay out till the wee hours of the morning in honor of our cunning rodent friend! With doors opening at 10PM, TRAMLINE promises amazing decorations, confetti and more. Bonus: it’s only €2 for Chinese beers as well as spring rolls [a symbol of wealth and prosperity in the new year]. They also have selected pints, bottles,and shots on special for only €3!
