We’re all getting used to the new normal.
And over on Mac Curtain Street, one of Cork’s most exciting restaurants is rolling out the welcome mat for intimate wedding parties, after a fresh batch of enquiries from couples whose large-scale celebrations have been put on the back burner due to Covid-19 regulations.
Brian Murray and his team at The Glass Curtain have been reserving the dining room from 1pm until 5pm so newlyweds can enjoy a sumptuous dinner with family and friends after they say their vows.
The restaurant can seat up to 35 people, who enjoy the full attention of the staff for the afternoon (from welcome bubbles to speeches) until they open to the public again for dinner in the evening.
“The menu can be tailor-made for each event and we have lots of little personalised touches and flowers for the room by the super talented Jill Wild,” Brian told Yay Cork.
“They will have the restaurant to themselves from 1pm to 5pm.”
Set in the old Thompson Bakery, founded in 1826, The Glass Curtain is not just a stunning spot to enjoy dinner, it’s also the perfect backdrop for some chic city wedding photos, both inside and out front in Cork’s handsome Victorian Quarter.
Cork-based interiors whiz Cathy Angelini of Flamingo Interior Design worked with the owners to carefully preserve as much of the bakery’s character as possible while adding plenty of sophistication to the space too.
The cost of reserving The Glass Curtain for a private day time wedding party is €800, plus €55 per person for three courses. The menu includes three choices for starter main course and dessert, plus canapes, sides, bread and tea or coffee.
