A new ‘high quality’ cocktail bar and restaurant officially opened this month (April) in Northampton town centre.
Electric Pavilion, at 10 Gold Street, opened earlier this month after a soft opening in December.
the Chronicle and echo photographer, Kirsty Edmonds, headed to the new location to take some eye-catching shots.
The establishment prides itself on good quality food and drink and investing in the young people of the city.
Owner Paul Kuznecovs once said this journal“As great supporters of our amazing city, we are honored to have the opportunity to nurture our food scene and play a key role in promoting great local produce and supporting our community.
“With a simple but skillfully executed menu that will always be prepared, cooked and served on site and a delicious cocktail menu, we are sure you will enjoy your stay here.
“We have beautifully flavored dishes, thirst-quenching cocktails, with an atmosphere that will make you feel relaxed and comfortable.”
The property was being used for illegal cannabis cultivation in 2020 at the height of the pandemic.
Paul, who also owns the building, came across the illegal operation during a routine inspection of the property and said the interior of the site had been “completely destroyed”.
“I was devastated, it was the last thing I needed to deal with. The damage was estimated at over £150,000 – what a nightmare,” he said.
After a year and a half of unsuccessfully trying to rent the property, Paul thought about opening the bar and restaurant.
“Why not? It made perfect sense. The premises used to be a restaurant. If there’s a will, there’s always a way,” he said.
Paul’s overall goal is to eventually create up to 20 job opportunities, have an environment where customer satisfaction is a “top priority” and develop staff members to achieve “great things”. in the hospitality industry.
“We invite the general public to come and taste what we have managed to achieve,” said Paul.
The Electric Pavilion is open Wednesday to Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
