Celebrations marking 30th birthday of Ridleys
A LOT of good times and happy memories have been created and lasting friendships formed that developed into marriage and life partnerships in plenty of instances.
Over three decades countless are the number who have attended Ridleys, Dundalk’s top night club venue that also incorporates The Rum House with bar and dining facilities that have grown and changed over the years to cater for a wide clientele that is drawn from a large catchment area on both sides of the border with an age span from teenage years to varying years of maturity.
The Park Street venue has retained its popularity through adapting and keeping in step with the trends and most of all by fulfilling the wishes of customers in the ever changing entertainment, food and drink trade, who go out to enjoy music and dancing provided by leading DJs and by live artists and bands. Plus those who like to socialise more quietly and simply with a meal or drink or both. The loyalty of the self same customers has been crucial in helping the venue to be as important and relevant as ever to the social and recreational lives of young and not so young from students upwards. That is why the owners and management would like to invite and see as many customers as possible, past and present join in a special weekend of celebrations to mark the venue’s 30th birthday.
The celebrations are planned to run from Thursday to Sunday, October 11 to 14, with a programme of events over the course of the weekend which will feature giveaways and prizes with one lucky winner taking home a holiday voucher worth €500 at the end of it.
A special effort is to be made to involve customers from across the years with a Reunion organised for the Friday night in the Rum House, as the owners and management wish to acknowledge and extend their gratitude to them and everyone who has supported the business and assisted in building it up over the years that entailed the extension of the premises, and major renovations and remodelling of the structure that took in what was the former Tara lounge and bar.
Live music by local bands will be laid on the Friday and Sunday in the Rum House, while on the Saturday night there will be a special iRadio party in Ridleys. The birthday bash will culminate on the Sunday night when the winner of the holiday gift voucher will be announced. Undoubtedly new enjoyable memories will be created over the course of the weekend, and many of those special times that were had reminisced over and fondly recalled.
For Ridleys remains the place to be, making the weekend the best and most enjoyable part of the week. So don’t miss this very special weekend of celebration.
