Popular Belfast venue Filthy McNasty’s to undergo major refurbishment

Local

 

A busy Belfast venue has started a major refurbishment in a bid to keep up with the city centre’s changing nightlife.
Filthy McNasty’s opened on the Dublin Road in 2010 and has proven to be popular with punters since.
Visitors over the last year or so will however have noted that the interior has somewhat deteriorated, giving the feeling that the venue may be past its glory days.
A lack of fresh investment and increased competition from new names on the Belfast nightlife scene, have prompted major action from owners Bachus Inns.
Filthy’s sister bar, The Points has gone from strength to strength following a major refurbishment in 2016 and lovers of Filthy’s will no doubt hope to see the venue return to it’s peak.
Work is due to be completed by 2019.
