Metro Magic

The Metro, one of Derry City’s most iconic and popular venues, hosted a glittering VIP reception recently to mark the unveiling of a great new look and a great new portfolio of draught drinks brands.

Art deco elegance has combined with contemporary style and state of the art facilities to create a uniquely stylish venue in the shadow of Derry’s Walls and Metro fans have been toasting their favourite bar’s bright new image in their new choice of products from Tennent’s NI: home of Tennent’s, Magners, Heverlee, Becks, Clonmel 1650, Roundstone Irish Ale, Menabrea and Maggie’s Leap.

A Tennent’s Sound Check promotion, which challenged Metro-goers to name Tennent’s Vital playlist tunes, was just one of a series of beer and cider promotions that have been organised by Tennent’s NI to mark the arrival of its great portfolio of draught drinks brands at The Metro.

Customers to the venue are now greeted with richly dark polished wood panelling alongside a contrasting natural oak parquet floor with inset decorative tiled areas adding both colour and pattern.  Antique bronze mirrors, reeded glass and brass details reflect soft understated coloured lighting and create cosy moods while softness and texture are provided by a mix of leather upholsteries with accent areas of patterned fabric.
