If you’ve always dreamed of running a buzzy city café bar and you have the skill set necessary to make it a success, the Triskel want to hear from you.
The arts centre is inviting tenders from professional hospitality contractors to run their popular and vibrant Café Bar (previously Scrypt Café Bar), including both the café and external courtyard.
The café bar comes with a ready-made clientele too, catering to patrons, artists and tenants at the Triskel as well as cinema-goers, concert crowds and meetings.
“My time with Scrypt gave me the chance to showcase the creativity around food in Cork and opened up so many other opportunities for me with the creative community.” said Rose McKenna, who created Scrypt Café in 2017.
“My favourite initiative was the night markets, which I have managed since the summer of 2018. I enjoyed that part so much that I have decided to focus on craft markets and currently run the market at the Old Blarney Post Office Café on Saturdays. So now there is an opportunity for someone new to make the café at Triskel their own, just like I did.”
“The Café Bar at Triskel is an atmospheric casual dining and coffee space with great potential,” said Tony Sheehan, Artistic Director at Triskel.
“The whole South Main Street area, where Triskel is located, including the City Park, is undergoing major re-development and presents great opportunities for all businesses in the area, including Triskel Arts Centre, despite the current challenges of Covid-19.”
