One of Northern Ireland’s biggest pub operators will create 60 jobs when its new Belfast nightclub opens next month.
Sixty6 will open on the city’s High Street as the second phase of the National Grande Café following a £400,000 investment by Beannchor, the group behind the Merchant Hotel and Little Wing Pizzerias.
Set over three floors, Sixty6 is said to “conjure the glamour of a classic Victorian’s Gentleman’s Club” in the Grade B listed former National Bank building.
“The opening of Sixty6 will provide an economic boost not just to the Cathedral Quarter but to the wider hospitality industry as a whole,” Conall Wolsey, director, Beannchor Group. “As we continue to grow, we are creating a solid foundation for the development of rewarding long-term careers.
“As a major employer of over 650 people, Beannchor is committed to investing in its people; these new roles - and all of our employment opportunities - are underpinned by ongoing staff training, development and rewards schemes that will drive the improvement of service standards in our own venues and right across the industry.”
Sixty6 is the latest venue to be added to the Beannchor portfolio, which includes over 50 pubs, hotels and restaurants across Northern Ireland, the most recent of which are The National Grande Café and The Dirty Onion.
