Plans afoot for Rectro Bar

PLANS are in the pipeline for the derelict Rectro Bar to be reopened, Daventry Town Council has said.

The former Fagins Bar at 2 New Street has stood empty since 1994 aside from a brief reopening as the Rectory cocktail bar in 1999.

Recently the building has come under criticism for being an eyesore in the town and attracting feral cats and pigeons. Town council clerk Deborah Jewell said: “A representative of the owner has recognised that the building is causing concern and said there are commercial plans in the pipeline.

“It’s commercially sensitive so there are no details as yet but there are plans. At the moment it doesn’t instill civic pride or help bring visitors to the town.”
