COPPER Face Jacks has become probably the best-known nightclub in the country.

A hit with gardai, nurses, GAA stars, students and country folk, the Dublin hotspot is well known to offer patrons a fun night out, one which will continue into the early hours of the morning if that's what the occasion calls for.

Ex-garda Cathal Jackson and his wife Paula own the club. The couple's foray into the nightlife business has proved to be successful as the establishment has been extremely lucrative over the years.

It was reported at the end of last year that Breanagh Catering Ltd – the firm behind the club – had a healthy pre-tax profit of €6.8m in the previous 12 months.

The company's 2010 accounts revealed that the cloakroom alone had fetched more than €200,000.

Even in the midst of GAA glory, former Dublin captain Bryan Cullen couldn't resist referring to the establishment, and shouted "see you in Coppers" from the podium as he lifted the All-Ireland trophy in Croke Park in 2011.

The nightclub – housed in the Jackson Court Hotel – is a maze of revelry with three floors, two heated smoking areas and six bars for revellers to enjoy.
