Well Hello! We are pleased to present our latest completed Project ‘The Friend At Hand’ Irish Whiskey Store which is located within Belfast Cathedral Quarter and has recently opened to great acclaim.
It’s the 1st of it’s kind in N.Ireland if not the entire Island of Ireland, which boasts an extensive collection of the finest of Irish Whiskey and Belfast Memorabilia.
Nestled within the popular Cathedral Quarter area ‘The Friend At Hand’ is a welcome addition which compliments our other projects ‘The Harp Bar’ ‘The Dark Horse’ & ‘Gallagher’s Lounge’ (Duke Of York Pub) all which are literally minutes walking distance form each other.
To convert an existing Sand-which Shop into a unique Irish Traditional Off Sales and become a distinctive Tourist attraction for Whiskey revellers. The shop boats a mini museum on the 1st Floor paying homage to the Old Bushmills Store Warehouse’s dotted throughout The Cathedral Quarter.
Our Design skills, spatial expertise and flair have truly been demonstrated to transform this former sand-which shop into an unrecognizable and amazing space show casing the finest Irish Whiskey money can buy.
