Popular Kilburn bar powers ahead
September 20, 2013
Popular Kilburn establishment Powers Bar has been sold by DCL – the leisure specialists – on behalf of Vince Power to Will Partridge and Jimi Pearce – the pair behind Wax Jambu in Islington – for £1m.
The 3,500 sq ft bar will be renamed Kilburn Ironworks and undergo an extensive refurbishment to create a relaxed and informal environment. A second bar and a kitchen are planned for the first floor, significantly increasing the amount of trading space.
The bar will serve a selection of local beers and craft ales complemented by a carefully crafted wine list, a hand-picked, high-quality spirit selection and an ever-rotating cocktail list. There will also be a selection of sharing food jars and small plates to enjoy on your own or to share with friends.
Kilburn Ironworks will open in early 2014.
Will Partridge of Kilburn Ironworks said: Having recently acquired Powers bar on Kilburn High Road, we intend to extensively refurbish the site, developing it into a prime North West London eating and drinking establishment. Our focus is very much on providing a great neighbourhood bar for local residents, giving them an offering that cannot currently be found anywhere else in the surrounding area.
Jonathan Moradoff, Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons commented: This part of North West London is really starting to develop into a leisure destination in its own right and operators are really starting to realise its potential. These early adopters are trading exceptionally well and Kilburn Ironworks fits perfectly with what we believe the area needs. Given the pairs track record running popular bars we have no doubt that it will be a success.
