This $10M redevelopment transformed Electra House into a three level venue with a mix of contemporary and original features. This historically significant building includes a fine dining restaurant across two levels, two ‘New York Soho’ style penthouse function rooms on the top level, a bar and beer garden on the ground floor and basement for back of house operations.

Built in 1901, the building had been vacant for 18 years and required extensive structural and service upgrades to render the building functional. The building features an external staircase with landing overlooking the beer garden. The front façade and original electric lift were unaltered to maintain the building’s heritage status.
