The Scoop On Kenmare: Three Tweets To The Wind

by BILLY GRAY · June 2, 2010

If you are willing and able to tweet from a bar, can the bar really be that much fun? Short-burst missives about Kenmare, from Kenmare, offer inconclusive evidence. What can we learn from the amateur reviews?

Chaos reigns in determining exactly what Kenmare is. Restaurant or club? A gathering spot reminiscent of shuttered watering hole Beatrice Inn (GoaG has struck the word string "New Beatrice" from its vocabulary) or bold, fresh piece of vanity?

Aside from the truly lucky people whose digital musings about Kenmare refer to a visit to the idyllic town in Ireland, a sampling of recent tweets containing "Kenmare" offers some answers to these vexing questions keeping you up at night:

Kenmare Is A Club:

MusaTariq: Just got home from Kenmare, loved the music

RickGirljuice: DJ-ING AT KENMARE TONIGHT WITH @BECKADIAMOND TONIGHT. TONIGHT.

Kenmare Is A Restaurant:

KimKulikLuban: Good dinner last night at Kenmare. I will follow Joey Campanaro's meatball sliders wherever they may go.

MAveRiCknewyork: Wow. The food at Kenmare is AWESOME.

Kenmare Is Actually "The New" Abe & Arthur's/Bobo:

ddcoop: philippe or abe & arthurs or the lion or kenmare or bobo...which one?

A Night At Kenmare Triggers Spiritual and Existential (and Possibly Bipolar) Angst:

TheMiszuk: Kenmare is getting good! God help me!

Minutes later, the night took a turn:

TheMiszuk: Dear baby jesus why kenmare exist?

Kenmare, like Beatrice, makes you think of drugs:

punchyperchik: Again, as much as I try, the kenmare, like drugs, is never as good as the first time.

Kenmare Satisfies All, Except for the Times It Satisfies No One:

TheMiszuk: The kenmare! You either a upstairs person or a down! Down is the better!

specik: Uhh.. Yeah except it's always packed. RT @TheMiszuk: The kenmare! You either a upstairs person or a down! Down is the better!

And finally, via Peter Davis, Kenmare is a gathering spot reminiscent of shuttered watering hole Beatrice Inn:

"It's official--the basement of Kenmare is the new Beatrice Inn."

Is it all clear now?
