PLANS are in the pipeline for a transformation of a landmark premises on Oliver Plunkett Street, previously in use as Brennan’s Cook Shop for many years.
Phoenix Street Social have lodged a planning application with Cork City Council seeking permission for the change of use of 7 Oliver Plunkett Street to open a wine bar and art gallery.
Phoenix Street Social Ltd is directed by publican Benny McCabe, who owns a number of popular bars in Cork.
If given the go ahead, the wine bar and art gallery would be situated in a prime city centre location, at the junction of where Oliver Plunkett Street meets Beasley Street — immediately adjacent to Milano and Market Lane.
The application for the new business is currently at pre-validation stage.
City planners are due to make a decision on the application by early October.
