    It’s not really advertising. The customers are probably in and out of the nearest Paddy Power like blue arsed flies, so the pub is just being helpful to the ‘pub to bookies to pub to bookies’ type of gentleman/lady regular.

    I’d kill for that cocktail right now.

    Not Paddy Power advertising. Those are betting slips complete with bookie office pencils. It’s a pub facilitating gambling. Does someone take the bets? This place could be in for a visit from Revenue.

      It’s so helpful helping the elderly to lose their shirts. When that happens, a neat dram of whiskey steadies the nerves.

    The elderly aren’t daft like that, I would hasten a guess at them being probably the most careful and controlled, in society, when it comes to money matters. An odd flutter here and there is a wee bit of excitement for them and god knows, we all need excitement from time to time. Not everyone that places a bet, bets their bloomers, sorry you lost yours…

    Yes, the Gin Palace is a pub for twits.
