Enniskillen’s night life is in line for a shake-up as one of its best known bars the Crowe’s Nest, forges ahead with the total refurbishment.
The bar and nightclub, owned by well-known business couple Tara McManus and Nicky Cassidy, will be completely refurbished and extended with an extra level on the High Street hostelry.
And drinkers may even get their pints pulled by barman and manager Feargal Shannon.
“We are doing up the bar area and the night club and making better use of the space that we already have. There will be a new smoking area in the nightclub, downstairs will be wider and the kitchen will be on the same level as the bar, as opposed to being on the basement.
We are just rejigging everything about, so when we open up it will be completely different. The downstairs area will really concentrate on the live bands on a Saturday night. We are aiming for something different from what is already in Enniskillen, and a bit of the wow factor.” said Feargal Shannon.
There is also good news for those who are currently seeking employment as the Crowe’s Nest will be seeking almost 20 part-time and full-time staff to join their team when the venue is ready to open.
“Within the next few weeks, we will be looking for staff across the board such as kitchen staff, front of house, food and beverages, right up to supervisors,” added Feargal.
Crowe’s Nest Manager and popular pint puller Feargal has recently been nominated for this year’s Sunday Life, Barperson of the Year in the 2016 Hospitality Ulster Pub of the Year awards.
“I got the phonecall on Saturday evening, and it was a bit of shock to be honest. I do not know who nominated me, but it is great.
“I am delighted to be nominated and I am just hoping it will go well. I think the timing of it is around our opening, so it will work out well that way,” added Feargal.
