About Bryson's Bar:
As well as music and food, Bryson’s has always had a firm reputation for supporting local sport, playing host to many successful darts teams, and sponsoring a successful, but sadly short-lived local football team, Crescent Villa in the 1980s.
A history of supporting the local rugby club, Rainey Old Boys, and Gaelic Athletic Club, Magherafelt O’Donovan Rossa, has ensured that sportsmen and sports enthusiasts of every discipline are a common sight in the bar, and guarantees that the atmosphere for live sporting events is truly second to none.
But in a changing market-place, the Bryson’s brand had begun to outgrow its humble 100 capacity home, and so, with the assurance of the family’s support, and the commitment of eldest son Niall full-time to the project, the decision was made to undergo a radical refurbishment to bring Bryson’s firmly into its 3rd century, and 3rd generation.
The traditional Bryson’s lunch is now available 7 days a week, and with the addition of a more contemporary evening menu, the already sterling reputation for food which has been garnered over nearly 30 years can only continue to grow.
Add to this the vibrant live music scene which continues to frequent the bar, and the top local and international DJs who are making Bryson’s a new must play venue, and it is clear that the Bryson’s legacy is in good hands.
