WALKING past the Bush Bar in Enniskillen over the past two weeks, it’s been difficult not to try and have a look inside.
The building has been subject to a serious revamp over the past two weeks, and the Fermanagh Herald was given a sneak peek at what are huge changes to the venue. It re-opened to the public today (Friday).
As well as new marketing/branding, the inside of the building has changed dramatically. The entrance now features a new deli section, while it still retains its restaurant menu.
Furniture and decor has been totally changed, but it’s the upstairs bar that represents the biggest investment. As the photos show, the change has been massive.
And, 10 new staff have been employed as a result. The nightclub area is still being worked on, and is under wraps, but will be completed for its re-opening this Saturday night.
C0-owner Gavin Cassidy told the Fermanagh Herald this morning: “The idea was to create a new venue for Enniskillen that offers something that hasn’t been done before. It’s a different kind of bar.
“We’ve created a deli, open from 8am, at the front which is going to offer great, quick food. But we’re still offering our full menus which have all been revamped.
“We’ll be having live music and different variations of DJs upstairs: We haven’t christened it yet but we’re very excited about the potential for it. We want to keep what we have down the back: But we want to cater for a new audience too, upstairs.”
And resident DJ and marketing co-ordinator, Micky Quinn, told the Fermanagh Herald that he can’t wait for the public to see the changes.
“It’s about bringing something new to Enniskillen. They’re fresh ideas that Nicky and Gavin (Cassidy), have had for a while. We’re still going to be having our club and our club nights but we’re going to be bringing a mix of live music and DJs in other parts of the venue.
“We’re promoting local craft beers, fresh cocktails but we’re keeping everything affordable.
“It’ll be great to get back: Hopefully people will get in early and use the whole venue. I can’t wait until people see it.”
