The Wright Venue being ‘re-imagined’ by the owners of Wigwam and The Bernard Shaw

The club will close at the end of this month


The Wright Venue have officially confirmed that they will close at the end of this month.

After almost ten years in business, bosses have revealed that the Dublin hotspot is being “re-imagined and managed” by The Body Tonic Group – the same people behind Wigwam and The Bernard Shaw.

They’ve confirmed that the club will reopen as ‘Jam Park’ in the coming months as an exciting new venue for Dublin’s northside, and that all Wright Venue staff are being offered positions within the company.

The Michael JF Wright Hospitality Group, which recently announced plans to open St Andrew’s Food Hall in Dublin city centre, plans to re-focus on its growing restaurant and food businesses – which include Marqette at Dublin Airport, The Bloody Stream, Wright’s Anglers Rest, Wright’s Café Bar, Wright’s Findlater Howth and Gilbert and Wright.

Michael Wright said: “The Wright Venue has been an incredible journey. Since taking a chance and building a venue in North Dublin in the worst of the recession, we’ve spent a decade welcoming customers in their thousands from all over the country.”

“We thrived thanks to the talented and passionate team that helped create the unique Wright Venue atmosphere and reputation and by offering quality entertainment and major stars,” he continued.

“I’m particularly proud that we created a safe and enjoyable venue for thousands of young people with our teen events. I’d like to thank everyone that supported us and look forward to seeing Jam Park, Bodytonic’s new venture, thrive as we did.

“For us, our focus now is the food business. We plan to bring the same passion that made such a success of The Wright Venue to new projects such as St Andrew’s Food Hall,” he added.
