The Third Space Story
Our story starts in the changes Dublin saw in the “noughties”. Lots of new apartment blocks, lots of new offices and retail units – no gathering places. Living space and working space but no “third space”.
Third spaces are neighbourhood places where people can gather regularly, easily, informally and inexpensively.
Re-introducing such places into areas that lacked them became a passion for a small group of people. And so was born Third Space. It is a social business venture to open and run eating and meeting places in the areas of Dublin that lack community hubs. With a simple and great menu and an informal friendly environment, they will have a creative buzz that connects into the varied life of a modern Dublin neighborhood.
Third Space 1 opened in Smithfield in 2012. Third Space 2 is in the planning and development stage. The plan is to open in July 2015.
