FURY’S AYR – BEST NIGHTCLUB OF THE YEAR 2018
Fury’s in Ayr’s Nile Court has been crowned the Best Night Club of the year at the 2018 Scottish Hospitality awards held at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow Hotel on Tuesday 29th May.
The Scottish Hospitality Awards acknowledged the success of local professionals and establishments from restaurants and hotels to festivals and venues that have stood out from the rest due to their dedication to the customers’ satisfaction. The winners were chosen by members of the general public, a true reflection of the high standard and customer service that describe the Scottish hospitality industry.
Fury’s recognition has been led by General Manager Steven Muir who has been running Fury’s for around 8 years but has been with company for 17. He started as part time bar staff working his way up through supervisor, assistant manager, duty manager, manager and now general manager so he certainly deserves his position and knows the company inside out.
Steven said “Since taking over Fury’s and Harleys around 10 years ago we slowly changed the way the venues operated. We decided to take Furys away from the rock music side of things and focus that in Harleys with more live music / band nights and focus Furys as more of a generic charty dance music nightclub. The main focus was competing with Club De Mar on a Saturday night. Many years of rivalry was had with Furys coming out on top and the company finally buying Club De Mar and turning it into what Vinyl is today.
So progression for Furys we decided it was needing a face lift and a bit of modernisation from the dark rock club that was the old powerhouse. We replaced all the fixed seating with nice new fancy booths / brand new state of the art lighting system / wall lights and light up dance floor.
We now sell out our booth table packages every Thur and Sat night and have made Furys the club to be at over 5 nights a week – Wed – Sun”
Steven was delighted with the achievement and told us ” Winning the award is a very proud moment for myself but also for the whole team. Just being placed in the top 10 was an achievement to be honest. But winning was a huge bonus. I know that I could never have achieved this without a great time of hard workers behind me, from the DJs to the cleaners, bar staff, bouncers etc. Everyone playing a vital role as each other along the way.
It’s certainly been a very successful last few years for the company and myself as a manager of a great team who have worked extremely hard to get us where we are now. 2018 has had a great start to it and we are looking forward to the rest of the year and what 2019 brings. I hope this is the start of many awards for all the venues”
