Versatile: Silverchair bassist-turned-entrepreneur Chris Joannou and Chris Johnston put the final touches on their grand vision for The Edwards.THERE are few things quite assatisfying as slotting the final pieces into a puzzle that you have laboured over lovingly.

That moment of relish is fast approaching for Chris Joannou and Chris Johnston, as the remaining elements of their dream for The Edwards are set to fall into place.

Since the cafe, restaurant and bar opened in Newcastle’s west end a little over twoyears ago, The Edwards has evolved to include a coin-op laundry, a shop stocking vinyl records, and a workshop where one can buy a custom-made motorcycle from local craftsman Liam Butler.

In a nod to the site’s history, there is also a laundrette,and The Impossible markets fill the space monthly.

But at a celebrationon August 5, Joannou and Johnston will draw back the curtain on the venue’s latest offering, a beer garden and an intimate front bar, effectively book-ending their grand plan and vision for the site.

The new beer garden will offer a more casual drinking and dining experience, as well as space for functionsand community events.

The friends and business partners had always envisioned creating a multi-layered venue with different zones offering different experiences at The Edwards.

Their pioneering efforts have helped to resuscitateand restore confidence in the west endby showing what is possible when armed with passion and plenty of nous.

“We’ve alwaystried to look beyond offering just a cold beer and a burger, and really tried to create something where you could comethree times in the sameweek and not have the same experience,” Joannou says.

Alongside the dining and bar experience, they also wanted the space to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit in Newcastle.

“There are so many great makers of things in this town, from music to art to bikes and leather goods,” Joannou adds.

The Edwards’ new logo is symbolic of how the venue has evolved and changed to offer visitors a broad range of options and opportunities.

“It has taken alot of cues from the original logo, but as we’ve evolved, it’s a reflection of how the space has moved on as well,” Johnston says.
