The Porterhouse Central pub on Dublin's Nassau Street has opened a new off-license called The Bottle House to help maintain business during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
"An Opportunity To Generate Revenue"
Porterhouse Brew Co marketing manager Doug Leddin stated, "It's been an incredibly difficult week for hospitality [due to additional COVID-19-related business restrictions being implemented in Dublin], but the team at Porterhouse aren't the type to lie down and stop. [Porterhouse Central director] Dave [Morrissey] has worked tirelessly to ensure that if Dublin was to be locked down again that we would have an opportunity to generate revenue, support local suppliers and most importantly keep stay employed. We opened our doors on Saturday the 19th of September and plan to open seven days a week from 2pm - 10pm, selling local craft beers, premium local spirits and amazing selection of wines from our local suppliers."
Hoping To Keep Staff Employed, Suppliers Busy And Customers Happy
Speaking about the intended aim of the new off-license, Morrissey added, "We hope to be busy enough to keep some of our staff employed, our suppliers busy and our loyal customers happy."
