Supermacs owner Pat McDonagh is said to be interested in buying the famous Copper Face Jacks nightclub in Dublin and the adjacent Jackson Court Hotel.
Owner Cathal Jackson put the Harcourt Street building on the market last week. It is assumed that it can sell for a maximum of € 50m.
From & # 39; Coppers & # 39; McDonagh quotes in The Sunday Business Post: "It has a special place in many relationships, especially for people from the rural community."
Dublin city center nightclub and the adjacent 36-bed Jackson Court Hotel cover five buildings and three floors on Harcourt Street.
Accumulated profits at Copper Face Jacks operating company Breanagh Catering increased to € 75 million in 2018, with a profit of nearly € 5 million in the year.
Cathal Jackson "has now decided it is time for him to retire and is happy in the knowledge that the new owner will inherit a highly experienced management and staff team who have a great track record in running this long-established , popular and very profitable business, "says real estate consultant and hotel broker Dermot Curtin, of DC Curtin & Associates.
Founded in 1996, and constantly expanded, & # 39; Coppers & # 39; conceived as a synonym for rugged Dublin nightlife and a & # 39; transition ritual & # 39; for generations of Irish youth when they made their way into life, "notes the experienced agent Dermot. Curtin, pointing to the revival of the Paul Howard-posited Coppers: the musical musical of the same name again this year.
