The Coffee Palace was run by the Dublin Total Abstinence Society. It included hotel accommodation, coffee booths, and a ‘temperance hall with room for 500 people’. The building was later demolished along with the destruction of Theatre Royal on Hawkins St, and the New Metropole Cinema, later the Screen Cinema, eventually took its place.
Built 1824 – The Flowing Tide, Abbey Street, Dublin. - A fine pub building on an important corner site, The Flowing Tide has a great cut stone façade at street level. As can be seen in the photograph, originally like many Dublin pubs the main doorway was on the corner, accessible from both streets, one part of which has now been closed up. - Archiseek.ie
