Relax and Rejoice at The Palfrey

In The historic Old Blacksmiths Yard in the centre of Derby, a hidden gem awaits your visit.

If you've been out exploring the city, doing a spot of shopping or looking for a place to socialise then The Palfrey restaurant and wine bar may be exactly where you want to take a break, relax, refuel, recharge and rejoice.

Tucked up in the corner of Sadlergate, this beautiful building is home to one of the best eclectic food and drink menus in the city. If you're looking for a daytime pit stop or a perfect location to wine and dine in the evening then be sure to take yourself into The Palfrey for exactly that!

Upcycled Creative are proud to have been part of helping create the rustic and industrial vibe that we agree is just right for this prime location. 

 We wanted to help get The Palfrey's name in lights.

The first thing that strikes you when you walk though the door is the warm and inviting atmosphere, not only created by the friendly faces of the bar staff, but also by the clever use of ambient lighting that we love to provide using bespoke design.

 We created bespoke lighting designs for all the interesting 'nooks and crannies' of the building.

Creating a water feature was also a fun way to inflict some creative upcycled flare. Using wine bottles and our love of scaffold boards and pallets, we think this design adds to the rustic charm of the downstairs bar area.

We don't have a picture of it up and running just yet, but if you happen to visit The Palfrey and get a great shot of it in action, we would love for you to share it with us over on our Facebook page or give us a 'tweet' on Twitter.

Now look away ladies...we're about to share another one of our creations but this time it features in the gentlemen's bathroom...

 Who knew a beer keg could be so functional!

We've not left the girls out though, they have their own unique vanity unit. So ladies... if you are reapplying your lipstick or powdering your nose you'll be reflected in the bottom of an old whiskey barrel.

 The feature for the ladies.

As you can probably tell, just like with all of our projects, we are really excited and super happy with the end results. 

Providing an establishment such as The Palfrey with our upcycled creations and lighting is something we thrive on as a business. Please check out our other projects and commissions.

Next time you feel a thirst for a glass of something from the grape or the grain or perhaps the need for a casual bite to eat, then stop by The Palfrey where there is something for everyone to enjoy. 

 Upcycling these wooden crates makes a perfect display of what The Palfrey has to offer to quench your thirst.
