Something brand new, exciting and innovative has happened to Limerick city centre this month – the first Alex Findlater & Co. Food & Wine Hall has opened at 1 O’Connell Street, Limerick, at the heart of the city’s shopping and restaurant quarter.
Limerick hospitality firm the Savoy Group and Findlater & Co., the general grocers and wine merchants brand with a rich and storied heritage dating back to 1823, have come together to create the vibrant new Alex Findlater & Co. Food & Wine Hall, an impressive 18,000 sq. ft. Food & Wine Hall on the city’s main street, and an original and inspirational new resource for food and wine lovers.
The first of its kind in the city – and the first in what the partnership hopes will be a strong new Irish retail presence, with potential other sites being looked at around the country – the seriously substantial Food & Wine Hall includes a lavish Oyster & Seafood Bar, an upmarket food area, an elegant Bollinger Jazz & Supper Club, and a fantastic selection of over 300 wines from across the globe showcased at the handsome purpose-built wine theatre.
There will also be a flagship Warbler & Wren Coffee House as well as in-house coffee from Lavazza and Robert Roberts, and a full premium food retail experience, making the Alex Findlater & Co. Food & Wine Hall the new go-to destination in Limerick for food and drink shopping, all-day dining and meeting with friends over exceptional coffee, great wines and Champagnes, and delicious dishes from a wide variety of carefully curated menus.
Renowned in Limerick for their exceptional customer service and hospitality skills, the Savoy Group also operates the five-star Savoy Hotel, the George Boutique Hotel, the iconic Hamptons Bar & Grill and Da Vincenzo, the authentic Italian restaurant. Findlater & Co. have provided their unsurpassed professionalism and breadth of offering on coffee and wine to the Savoy Group for many years, and this new business venture is a brilliant blend of two companies at the top of their game.
Bringing a lush new layer of luxury and creating a stylish new drinking and dining destination in the city centre, the Alex Findlater & Co. Food & Wine Hall will add buzz and excitement to Limerick’s vibrant shopping and restaurant quarter. With plans to roll out the concept to a wider audience in other Irish cities and possibly in the UK, for now it is the lucky food and wine lovers of Limerick who will be the first to sample the delights of the premium Alex Findlater & Co. Wine & Food Hall as the venue opens this month.
