Most Pubs, Bars, and Restaurants around the world take months or years to implement new ideas and make changes based on customer suggestions. But not at Marshall's Irish Pub. In the past 3 months that we have been open we have made major changes 3 times to the menu based on customer requests. And now that we are getting ready to start our 4th month, we are making another big change (our 4th change) regarding how the Pub is setup based on customer suggestions.
The Pub is currently designed with two floors. The first floor is smoking and seats 16 inside and 8 outside. The second floor is non-smoking and seats 20. However, over the past 3 months very few people have expressed interest in sitting on the 2nd floor. Larger groups of customers also prefer to sit on the first floor since that is where the live band is every night. So with that in mind, we have decided to make all the customer seating on the first floor instead and move our kitchen to the 2nd floor.
We will be starting to work on the new renovations next week starting Monday, September 17, 2012 and the renovations should be completed by Thursday, September 27, 2012. During this time, the 2nd floor will be closed. However the first floor will be open as usual. Of course the kitchen will always be operational since customers love our international cuisine.
Please pardon the tarp that will up over the current kitchen area while we complete the renovations. It should only be up for just a few days when working on the first floor area during the week of the 24th. Once completed, we will then have all 44 seats on the first floor of the Pub. If space permits, we plan to add additional tables and chairs to cater to bigger crowds, however that will probably not exceed 50 to 55 seats total.
We are excited about this change and we hope you will be as well. Don't forget to book your Octoberfest and Christmas parties early to ensure availability. Of course we will update the website here along with our Social Networking pages with pictures after the renovations are completed at Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Google+.
