The specially commissioned piece was inspired by Irish Nightlife and took over five hours to complete.

SMIRNOFF Nightlife Exchange Project is part of a mission to inspire and enable more one-of-a-kind experiences and this bold attempt will see 14 countries work with respected nightlife figures to discover and celebrate the best elements of their country’s nightlife.

SMIRNOFF are looking to find the vital ingredients that make Irish nightlife great. We will then pack-up our best nightlife into a crate for one of the other countries to experience on November 27th 2010. The question is which country will Ireland get?
SMIRNOFF is inviting suggestions for what represents the best of Irish nightlife.

This might be a specific type of music, a locally-conceived cocktail or a fashion trend unique particular to our part of the world.

Submit your ideas to help shape this unique global experience and find out how you can join the worldwide party on the 27th November by becoming a fan at
