Magherafelt nightclub Secrets and sister bar Mary’s is celebrating after sweeping the board at the last week’s LCN catering and hospitality awards at Belfast’s Europa Hotel.
Secrets picked up two of the evening’s main accolades including nightclub of the year and best use of social media for its engaging content fending off stiff competition from across Northern Ireland, while Mary’s Bar took home the hotly anticipated bar of the year gong.
Secrets nightclub opened at the end of the summer last year following a £1.5 million refurbishment of Dorman’s and The Opera now run by the third generation of the family who established Dorman’s back in 1907.
Independent mystery shopping company Spotcheck visited the shortlisted venues across Northern Ireland applauding both Secrets and Marys for their excellence in bar, nightclub and lounge concept development, operations, promotion, innovation and success.
Husband and wife team Henry and Teresa McGlone, proprietors of both Secrets and Marys said, “The team at both the venues work together diligently to ensure they are top of their game and we strive to offer a welcoming atmosphere in two venues for all age groups.”
“From the home-grown food offering at Mary’s Bar to researching the world’s best entertainment venues and DJs to create Secrets we are over the moon to have picked up three coveted LCN Awards.”
“Secrets is phase one of a three phase development with plans firmly underway to create the final two phases that will again bring a dynamic and fresh approach that is not only unique to Magherafelt but to Northern Ireland.”
