This evening, I was thrilled to be kindly invited along by Carrigan’s owner, Mr. Barry Carrigan for a sneak preview at the fantastic new sports bar and function suite at Broompark Road, Blantyre.
The construction of the incredible new bar which has been ongoing since early in the year is now nearing completion. Tonight, the final touches were being added, the new bar being stocked up and motivated staff excited and enthusiastic for the imminent opening. You will FEEL the quality of the finishes. How beautiful it all looks!
The opening of the sports bar is scheduled for later this week and will see the whole fantastic development coming together, with the bar and function suite running alongside the existing, established reputable restaurant.
Blantyre residents will be pleased to see the same high standards and quality of finishes have been kept throughout the building. A marble bar is a prominent feature. TV screens of such huge size it’s impossible to describe, adorn the walls. The bar looks truly amazing and I was also pleased to see some nostalgic items from the previous building saved and subtly integrated into the fabric of the new building.
The function suite, ideal for family functions is due to open later this month, as is the adjacent William Hill bookmakers. Construction of the carpark continues as the trades now get ready to leave the building.
I’m not going to say much more, nor post my photos until the opening itself, but I promise you once you see this wonderful new venue for yourself, you’ll understand my excitement that such a place now exists in Blantyre!
Carrigans Blantyre has, in a short space of time this year gained an excellent reputation for its food and friendliness. I’m sure those customer service standards will be repeated in the sports bar.
All in all, this whole building is everything I could hope for this town, and in my opinion will be tremendously successful and popular.
I wish the Carrigan family all the very best for their launch this week (Look to Blantyre Telegraph for actual launch). May I take this opportunity also to thank the Carrigan family for their kindness, their chats, meetings and permitting access throughout their whole project.
