    Paris in the great outdoors

    A TOP of the range High Street business has struck gold.

    Renowned city centre bar, restaurant and smokehouse, Paris Texas, has scooped the coveted Best Outdoor Space title in the South East section of the Irish Pub Awards.

    Matt the Millers won Best Music Pub for the second year bolstering Kilkenny’s challenge for national honours in the

    All-Ireland final in November.

    Pat and Pamela Crotty told The Reporter they were delighted with the victory.

    “Outdoor spaces like ours were very busy during a super summer  and we’re hoping this win will put us further on the map as a great place to enjoy a night out. 

    “We’re very proud of this great team effort and are so thankful to our customers for supporting us.

    “We are very fortunate to have an incredibly hard-working, loyal team.

    “They are our daily ambassadors and the true champions here. This award is for them.”

    Paris Texas was a finalist in the Sky Bar of the Year Awards last year and was shortlisted in the Small Firms’ Association Small Business of the Year Awards in 2016. 

    They were nominated for the Best Whiskey Bar in Leinster  in the Irish Whiskey Awards run by the Irish Whiskey Association and the Celtic Whiskey Shop last year.
