Until Monday 19th January, 2015 and since the 6th June, 2014 ely gastro bar has been managed by ely restaurant group on behalf of the receivers, Grant Thornton, to ensure a successful and seamless sale. ely restaurant group would like to offer a note of appreciation to Grant Thornton for how they have handled the receivership process.

ely gastro bar has successfully traded in Grand Canal Square since opening its doors in 2007 and has received many awards and accolades for its commitment to food provenance and service, plus widespread recognition for its selection of craft beers, cocktails and, of course, wines over the past seven years.

ely restaurant group wishes to thank their loyal supporters, neighbours, suppliers, distinguished press and valued customers for their continued commitment. Most importantly, they are sincerely grateful to the entire dedicated staff of ely gastro bar. Staff members have been kept informed and ely has ensured that no jobs have been lost.
