first_imgAre you ready for the Warehouse Bar and Kitchen?After months of extensive renovations at Gallaghers Hotel, Main Street, Letterkenny, the McGettigan Group have announced a new dining and entertainment concept, Warehouse Bar + Kitchen, which will open its doors to the public this Wednesday.The McGettigan Group is a family-run business of hotels, bars and restaurants. Founded by Letterkenny native, Jim McGettigan, the group is headed up by Jim’s son and CEO, Dennis McGettigan.Located in the centre of Letterkenny – at the site formerly known as Milan nightclub – the venue is spread across two floors, and 9,000 square feet. “The timing of our launch couldn’t be better. There is so much happening in Letterkenny and Donegal over the summer. We have amazing bands and live music lined up, catering to all tastes from rock, to pop and old school classics,” says McGettigan Group CEO, Dennis McGettigan.The venue’s interior design takes its inspiration from industrial factories and warehouses from bygone years. Pipes and ceilings are left exposed to create a real industrial feel, shelves are filled with vintage beer bottles while huge wooden ale barrels are scattered throughout.A large steel-iron staircase leads up to an open rooftop garden area which features a retractable roof to suit all weather conditions. Guests can enjoy their drinks and enjoy a bird’s eye view of all the hustle and bustle of the main street. The bar will feature an open-air kitchen where patrons can watch the culinary staff in action, which will serve a tapas-style menu, designed by the group’s brilliant executive chef Derek Flynn.“I wanted to create food that lends itself to a good time, dishes that can be shared amongst friends. There’s no reason why the food can’t be as good and complex as a high-end restaurant, even though it is served in more casual surroundings and at an affordable price,” says executive chef Derek Flynn.A key focus of Warehouse Kitchen + Bar, is its impressive cocktail menu which has been designed by bar manager, Mark Kelly who has an extensive background in mixology. Hailing from Dublin, Kelly brings over 14 years experience with him having worked in some of Ireland’s finest nightlife venues. The menu has been designed with a focus on classic cocktails that are loved internationally – reflecting tastes at home and abroad. Drinks such as daiquiris and Mojitos will be on offer as well as signature creations.“Our team has created an impressive selection of innovative drinks, that use premium spirits and fresh ingredients. We offer a range of classic choices, but also focus on more unusual concoctions,” says Warehouse bar + Kitchen’s manager, Mark Kelly.Over the coming months, customers can expect to be entertained by top artists from all around Ireland, DJs and up-and-coming bands.The McGettigan’s Group are proprietors of the Clanree hotel in Letterkenny which is home to McGettigan’s bar as well as hotels and bars in Dublin, Galway, Limerick and further afield in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, New York and Singapore.
