More than 100 jobs are expected to be created when Dorman’s new-look night club opens in Magherafelt.

As revealed by the Mail earlier this year, the popular Mid-Ulster night spot closed its doors a few months back to allow the refurbishment work to commence.

The development is in four phases - the first phase is expected to concentrate on the nightclub side while the second will focus on the restaurant, followed by another two phases.

Further details regarding the transformation will be revealed later in the year.

A spokesperson for Dormans said all the proposed work was on schedule and the project would be completed with two years.

The transformation is being headed by Belfast firm Mc Cue & Assocaties, who have just completed major projects at Claridges Hotel, London.

Features are understood to include a state-of-the-art cocktail bar and a luxurious secret lounge.

“The project has been subject to huge gossip in recent months. “This is unparalleled to the current offerings in Northern Ireland nightlife and we are all very excited,” she said.

In a statement, McCues said: “For the past 60 years our vision has been to turn space into place. Having worked closely with the creative team we have created a luxurious and glamorous nightclub, which will become the centre point of the complex. This is Phase 1 of a extraordinary project.”

The design team has completed major projects worldwide that has led to inspiration and an eye opener to what is possible within the venue. The club scene in Manhattan, New York has helped set the scene of the décor

and look of the new club.
