Nightcap Event Group Continues Expansion with Acquisition of The Foxes Den
Leading hospitality and mobile bartending service company, Nightcap Event Group has announced the acquisition of its first licensed premises, marking a significant milestone for the company and its ongoing expansion.
The Group, led by Declan Holmes and Dean McFarland, has recently taken over The Foxes Den restaurant in Newtownards, securing employment for over 25 employees, adding to the company’s already prolific employee base of over 300 people.
Established in 2020, The Foxes Den offers an extensive delicatessen and restaurant offering, utilising locally sourced food to create fresh, homemade dishes, which are all expertly produced by its experienced in-house team. The restaurant, located on Jubilee Road, boasts a relaxed and comfortable setting with modern décor and can accommodate up to 100 people. It has been a popular choice for the local community, particularly the local business community, since it first opened.
Nightcap Event Group, which recently celebrated its tenth successful year in business, has vast experience in the hospitality industry, beginning as a mobile bartending service for private and business clients before expanding into larger events, consultancy services, event management and event organisation.
Through the acquisition, Nightcap Event Group is seeking to build on The Foxes Den’s exceptional reputation and maximise its potential, by utilising its expertise in events to offer bespoke evening events, in addition to an outside catering service.
Managing Director of Nightcap Event Group, Declan Holmes, said, ‘We are delighted to have acquired The Foxes Den in Newtownards and add it to our business portfolio. It’s apt that as we recently celebrated 10 years in business, we also celebrate our first fixed premises, marking the next chapter in the Group’s evolution.
‘When the opportunity arose to take over the restaurant, we knew it was the right fit for us at this time. We are looking forward to utilising our expertise to further grow the restaurant’s reputation, and the community that it has built to date, as well as using it as a platform for future events and as a basis for acquiring additional venues.’
