Discussions with the venue owners led to a layout that focused on maximising front-of-house space and access to staff areas, reducing staff double up in off peak periods while optimising patron contact during busy times. Another key consideration was the inclusion of a temporary entry the centre of the venue, which was later removed once the new entrance was completed. This consideration allowed trading throughout the project, maintaining cash-flow and patron loyalty. The construction of the retail complex around the venue also needed to be accommodated, resulting in a measured, three stage build.
Featuring various snug, library, group areas, open stage and dance floor, the new venue caters for parties of all sizes, with a lower level Whiskey bar providing separated function areas. The décor of stained timbers, brass edgings, carved joinery, marble, tiles, bric-a-brac and coloured glass screens brings the atmosphere of a authentic Irish Pub to life, especially during traditional Irish music performances.
