Well-known Dublin nightclub the Wright Venue is to close its doors later this month.
The massive venue in Swords, North Co Dublin, has played host a large number of high profile celebrities in its 10 years in existence, including The Game and Rihanna.
Staff have been informed of the impending closure.
It’s one of a number of high-profile venues to announce plans to close in recent times, after Lillies Bordello in Dublin and Club 92 in Leopardstown.
The lease on the premises will be taken over by Bodytonic, which runs festivals, pubs and restaurants. It is set to open a new venue there called the Jam Park.
The company behind the Wright venue is the Michael JF Wright Hospitality Group. Also in its portfolio is Wrights Café Bar in Swords and the Marqette Food Hall in Dublin Airport. It will look to offer redeployment within the Group to Wright Venue staff.
Chief executive Michael Wright said the business is currently focusing on food projects, including a €5m investment in a food hall at St Andrew’s church on Dublin’s Suffolk St, located beside the Molly Malone statue.
