The MET, the new Bar & Restaurant with Tea Room launched as part of revamp as hotel gears up for the Cork Jazz Festival with new VIP package
The MET at the Metropole Hotel Cork has launched today, which is the hotel’s new Bar, Restaurant and Tea Room. It is the latest part of the recent €2.5 million refurbishment which has taken place at the hotel this year. This also includes the refurbishment of all 108 bedrooms earlier in the year. Five new jobs have been created as a result of the investment.
Aaron Mansworth, Group General Manager at Trigon Hotels said: “The new MET Bar really is a superb addition to the vibrant MacCurtain Street and Victorian Quarter. We cannot wait to show off the hotel to new and returning guests and visitors. We are seeing very strong visitor numbers to Cork and we had a good summer across our three hotels. There is a real ‘Cork feel’ to the new menus at the MET with a number of signature dishes included on the menus.”
This launch comes as the Metropole Hotel is gearing up for the annual Cork Jazz Festival. This is the 41st year of the Jazz Festival and the Metropole Hotel has been at the heart of the festival since the very beginning.

We have four nights of jam packed jazz entertainment at the hotel from Friday 26th to Monday 29th October. This year we have a very special VIP package for jazz enthusiasts. We are introducing the VIP jazz lounge at the Beckett Suite, where people will experience smooth jazz sounds in an intimate seated venue.

We offer table service drinks until 12 midnight along so you can sit back and enjoy the Jazz. Afterwards you can enjoy access to the overall hotel entertainment.
