American businessman and celebrity Dan Blizerian caused a stir after visiting the Conor McGregor-run Black Forge Inn in Dublin for a week.
Blizerian, 41, who calls himself the “King of Instagram”, visited the South Dublin establishment with seven models, sharing his visit on his Instagram story and thanking McGregor for his “hospitality”.
Black Forge manager Liam Flynn also shared several photos of Blizerian’s visit on his Instagram account with the caption, “Dan, the man who popped into the house tonight is doing it properly.”
Some Black Forge followers were quick to call Flynn for allowing Blizerian to enter the bar in shorts while ignoring the establishment’s dress code.
“No shorts allowed, Liam,” joked one Black Forge Instagram follower.
Blizerian wasn’t the only celebrity visiting the Black Forge this week.
American rapper Coolio, who became legendary with the ’90s cult hit “Gangsta’s Paradise”, was also spotted for a week at a smoking pub with Dublin rappers “Eskimo Supreme” and “Casper Walsh” from Versatile.
McGregor bought Black Forge for €2 million in 2020 and spent another €1 million refurbishing the Crumlin establishment.
The MMA fighter has also purchased the nearby Marble Arch in Drimnach as part of his burgeoning pub empire.
More recently, McGregor has added to his growing portfolio of pubs by purchasing the Waterside bar in the affluent North Dublin suburb of Howth.
