Electric undergoes €200K revamp

Electric undergoes €200K revamp

10 February 2015

Electric Cork opened its doors on the busy South Mall just over four years ago and has gone from strength to strength, however this week they will close their doors for the first time since 2010. Before panic sets in, the people of Cork can breathe a sigh of relief as the closure will only last a few days. The popular spot will reopen just in time for Valentine’s Day with a brand new look bar following the first phase of a €200,000 revamp.

The investment of €200,000 will go towards renovations in the bar including a new kitchen, new furniture, and an overall new image both inside and out, with the work expected to be completed in April.

Speaking about the changes, owner of Electric, Ernest Cantillon said “We wanted to freshen the place up a little and make sure we stayed ahead of the rest and at the top of our game. We spent the last few years investing in the opening of The Fish Bar and Sugarcube, so now it’s time we went back and looked after Electric. It’s been four years since we opened and these renovations will really give the bar a new fresh look and feel which our loyal customers will appreciate.”

The building work is being carried out by O’Shea’s, who originally built the frame for the existing building in 1930. The crew will work around the clock to ensure Electric and The Fish Bar are back up and running just in time for the most romantic day of the year. O’Shea builders were also involved in the redevelopment of the building in 2010 when Electric first opened, and subsequently the introduction of The Fish Bar in 2013.

To celebrate the re-opening of the Electric, the highly the popular Electric Supper Club will be officially launched this week and will run every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening from 7pm going forward.
