First presented in 2009, The Licensed & Catering News Awards are the biggest event of their kind for local hospitality businesses. The ceremony attracts a wide cross-section of the trades and offers recognition to the best hotels, bars, restaurants and guest houses across Northern Ireland. A few members of the Filthy’s team were lucky enough to attend the awards on Friday evening, June 10th on behalf of the venue where we were finalists for numerous categories such as Style Bar for Filthy Chic, Best use of Social Media in Hospitality and Nightclub of the year. The event was a true success for Filthy McNasty’s with the venue winning the first award of the night; Style Bar for Filthy Chic. The judges comments for Filthy Chic stated: “Contemporary, elegant décor and a fantastic cocktail menu. Staff were professional, attentive and engaging which created a relaxed and stylish venue.” This was a fantastic surprise to all staff at Filthy’s and was a true achievement to all employees especially those involved with the hard work put into the cocktail bar. With big plans for the future of Filthy McNasty’s, this has definitely set the benchmark for what is to come!
