After two years, live in-person music has finally returned. What better way to kickstart 2022 than with a genuine New Orleans Mardi Gras night out. Just like its hometown, Southern Comfort brings people together for a good time. The New Orleans-rooted brand, which is best served with good music and better company, has officially launched its most sought-after event of the year, Southern Comfort Mardi Gras. 


Southern Comfort has teamed up with Hot Press to host the highly anticipated Mardi Gras themed night which is set to take place on Tuesday, March 1 in Lost Lane, Dublin. There will be no shortage of soulful energy on the night with one of the country’s favourite live acts, Booka Brass taking the main stage. Carnival dancers, drummers and fire performers will be on hand to entertain the eager guests in the Lost Lane laneway with dazzling displays as the evening begins. 


Speaking at the launch, Laura Scott, brand manager of Southern Comfort with Hi-Spirits Ireland said; 

“We are thrilled to be bringing back Southern Comfort Mardi Gras!, we are really looking forward to this year’s line-up for the night! We have different acts performing throughout Dublin’s hottest music venue. The night will be one to remember for our guests and Southern Comfort lovers, with entertainers, jugglers, stilt walkers and surprises around every corner. ”


Offering a real taste of the Big Easy in Dublin’s Grafton Street, the celebrations will be dispersed throughout the venue. In the Singer’s House you’ll find the red-hot Queen of soul Melina Malone with Steve ‘Broken String’ McCann on guitar. Rising star Bobbi Arlo has also been announced to join an already brilliant main stage line-up that includes one of the country's most lauded live acts, Booka Brass.


The Carousel Bar will be beaming with DJ sets from international DJ Frank Jez and Jaz Keane and guests can expect a flow of smooth-drinking cocktails throughout the night.
