Did Dino’s Bar & Grill Exist Other Thin Lizzy References
In Thin Lizzy’s ‘Boys are Back in Town’ it refers to Dino’s Bar & Grill, was this a well-known Dublin establishment at the time or is it a fictional bar?
Are there other references of pubs etc in Thin Lizzy that can actually be visited? Did Phil frequent any known bars?
Btw relating to the 30 year rule, the song came out in 1976.
Edit: Found an interview online and apparently it’s in Los Angeles:
‘”The reference to Dinos Bar n Grill in the third verse had to do with Los Angeles. As a kid, Phil loved 77 Sunset Strip, the early 60s American TV detective series that aired in reruns on Irish television.
For Phil, that show was the epitome of Hollywood. When we were in L.A. on our first American tour in 1975, Phil walked the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood looking for No. 77. That number didnt exist.
When he asked a parking attendant, the guy pointed across the street at Dinos Lodge, which appeared on the shows opener. Phil added Bar n Grill to Dinos because it sounded way better than lodge and more American.”

Reviews For Dino’s Bar And Grill
We’ve been coming to Dinos for close to 10 years and Kim the blonde waitress/bartender is one of the best servers we’ve seen there. She goes the extra mile she’s prompt and hard working, always in a good mood and super friendly. Big pad on the back to her and Curtis
Have been to Dino’s 20+ times and have only had one bad experience. Other than that it has been fantastic. The wings/ribs are super good and their Monday night pizza/beer special is hard to beat.
