WELL-known Belfast city centre bar and restaurant, Howard Street has completed a £40,000 refurbishment programme, which is set to create a number of new jobs.

The restaurant, recently named as one of Northern Ireland's ‘Top 100' hospitality venues by Hospitality Ulster, completed the refurbishment as part of a rebrand, which also includes a revamped menu.

Speaking about the new look, Martin Murphy owner of Howard Street said the work should enable the business to take on more staff in the near future.

“We listened to what was important to our customers and have created a contemporary new interior and menu that still harnesses its traditional charm. We are delighted with the results which also allow us to better cater to our customers' needs with a more efficient kitchen and service area, and since reopening we have been busier than ever and will soon be on the lookout for additional staff," he said.

Philip Green, business relationship banker at First Trust Bank, who have supported the investment, added:

“First Trust Bank has supported Howard Street since it first opened back in 2013 and we are delighted to ‘toast' its latest successful development. Martin and the team have worked hard to make Howard St a huge success with the recent renovation demonstrating their commitment to creating a great dining experience for customers.”
