This unusual and interesting restaurant is located a bit off the beaten track - in the new East City area - which is currently very in. It is most definitely well worth the visit if you haven’t ventured into that area for a while.

The restaurant’s layout is so versatile and flexible that it is not only a superb eatery but can also transform itself with a little effort into a venue suitable for most events, celebrations or launches. If meeting a client is on the cards you will even find a private upstairs area with comfortable couches where private conversations can take place while enjoying some of the delightful and healthy food. Of course the space is also suitable for proposals of various types or for casual chit chat.

The building itself is a point of discussion and the staff are helpful and extremely knowledgeable. The Electric provides wonderful service in a welcoming, comfortable environment making clients feel able to stay as long as they would like to, without any pressure whatsoever. And who would want to leave anyway when everything down to the coffee is absolutely superb?

So if you’re planning anything for a group or a crowd and need a special space which will inspire conversation and discussion with the care and charm of a wonderful team of staff and a delicious menu contact the helpful hands-on GM Kay. He will put together your event by effortlessly waving his magic wand and all you need to do is pop in for a coffee and leave all the details to him.
