We love a good origin story and West End Village’s latest pop-up bar Fredericks has one for those with a sweet tooth.
Considering the bar overlooks the Peters Ice Cream Factory, what better than to pay tribute to it? Named after Peters Ice Cream owner, Frederick Peters, the bar doesn’t shy away from showcasing the site’s story. Owned by Paul McGiven and Bailee Dewes of The Wolfe, La Lune, and Corella; and One Fish Two Fish owners Daniel Miletic and Amelia Miletic, the collaborative venue will take elements from each of the owner’s past bars to create a unique experience for West End.
When entering the bar, you can expect a pop of colour and a creative take on ice cream thanks to film designers Jon Dowding and Chrissy Feld. The latest scoop is that the bar’s design is also set to pay homage to the rich history of the area. With experience designing The Met and The Family nightclubs, we cannot wait to see the results!
Guests will be able to follow the fairy-lights on Boundary Street to the pop-up bar and enjoy the open-plan and open-air space venue. Nights out at Fredericks will welcome you to with a beer or wine glass in hand (or a crafted cocktail, if that’s your thing too!). The bar also has your snacks sorted with cheese and charcuterie available to nibble on in summer (and what goes with wine more?) and The Garden Pantry venues such as Mr. Bunz, Cheeky Poké and Salts Meat Cheese nearby to compliment your drink.
Whilst Peters Ice Cream is best found in the fridge, Frederick’s will be opening at the top of Factory Lane in early September 2019 to make way for West End’s new editions arriving in late 2020. We can’t wait for the lanes to be an exciting hub of food, retail and speciality and for the Fredericks story to be on full show.
