Llywelyn’s Pub established itself as a St. Louis gastropub landmark long before the word ‘gastropub’ existed. From the initial Central West End location, the company has grown to six locations throughout metro St. Louis and a franchise location in the Kansas City metro area. Focusing on Celtic fare and a traditional Irish pub atmosphere, the pubs host beer and whisky classes, offer live music, and offer banquet facilities for larger events.
Because each location hosts different events and offers distinct facilities, but shares a common menu and specials list, Llywelyn’s needed a website that allowed each location to manage its own content while maintaining a unified brand and message.
The site was built in Drupal to simplify the different access levels and permissions of a variety of staff members. Bar managers can update specials and events for their specific location quickly and easily, while the corporate staff updates the rotating home page banner content and messaging. Spry was also able to add online banquet room reservations, which is a big time-saver for the location managers.
