Nightcap Event Group LTD

Our Tenant Case Study: Nightcap Event Group LTD

Declan Holmes and Dean McFarland are joint owners of Nightcap Event Group Ltd.

Meet our businesses:

Nightcap Event Group Ltd provides drinks and cocktail services for weddings, corporate events, private parties and hospitality businesses as well as providing highly trained hospitality and events staff for venues.

Lifelong friends Declan and Dean came up with the idea to make and serve cocktails at events in 2013. Over the past nine years, the business grew, expanding to a wider range of drinks events – including a bespoke gin bar where people build their own cocktails – but also creating an agency providing highly trained people for hospitality venues.

“After Covid, staffing became a huge issue for so many venues but we have on our books 150 people who are trained and skilled casual hospitality and events staff who we can send to prestigious venues across Northern Ireland affected by shortages in the labour market,” Declan said.

Why they chose Ards Business Hub:

Ards Business Hub is very convenient and provides a great arterial route into Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland. In addition, they were looking for a space with a ground floor for their equipment and a mezzanine level for offices.

“Ards Business Hub is perfect for us. We have a great space at Strangford Park which provides an office and stores plus we can use the conference rooms for staff training, which is very important. We’ve also had excellent support and advice from the team at Ards Business Hub, which will help us continue to grow,” said Declan.

What we say:

Nichola Lockhart, Chief Executive of Ards Business Hub, said: “Nightcap Event Group Ltd is a dynamic, inventive and growing business, which is meeting the challenges of a difficult economic climate by diversifying and changing its business plan.  Declan and Dean quickly saw that the hospitality industry was suffering from staff shortages and set up an agency to meet that need.”
