Kernoff depicted Dublin’s so-called 'Literary Pubs' as places of social and cultural importance where poets, writers, artists, journalists and intellectuals congregated. Asserting his own membership of this community, he includes himself here, instantly recognisable in spectacles and trilby. Two playbills, visible behind the bar, point to the role of the pubs in the promotion of the theatre. One advertises Brinsley MacNamara’s Look at the Heffernans at the Abbey, the other Lord Longford’s production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Gate, a witty juxtaposition of comedy and tragedy.
