But the transformation of Citron to Basalt was a bar and restaurant scene stealer, which a decade later has proved a win- ner for Howick and for own- ers Gavin Cowell and Barworks Hospitality Group. “We bought Citron on August 12, 2003,” says Gavin. “On November 1, nearly three months later and after a major renovation, we opened as Basalt and haven’t looked back since.” In creating Basalt, the pair also set up parent company JAG Hospitality (JAG being an acro- nym for John and Gavin) and went on to purchase seven more bars before teaming up with DB Breweries to form present day company, Barworks Hospitality Group. These days Basalt is success- fully managed by Shane Higgin- son, who started there as head chef eight years ago. “When Barworks was formed and I became group operations manager, Shane stepped up to manager at Basalt and has done a superb job ever since,” says Gavin himself a Howick resi- dent. Subsequently, the bar and res- taurant has become very much a part of local lives with Shane focused on fostering a sense of community. “We have such great support from our regulars who really do view it as their ‘local’ and as such we endeavour to meet their needs in whatever way possible,” he says. And in keeping with this phi- losophy Basalt took another step up in the world last year, so to speak. “We added a second level to the building and after months of work, Gazebo opened just before Christmas last year. It has been an outstanding success.” With this ﬂagship bar still doing a roaring trade, Gavin adds it was only ﬁtting that the 10-year mark should be celebrated in a way that patrons and the com- munity could join in. As a result this week is crammed full of fes- tivities with locals urged to pop by and celebrate. Join the party! It’s party time at Basalt and the 10-year celebrations are in full swing. Enjoy the fun starting with tonight’s Halloween fancy dress party. And don’t be spooked by the idea of dressing up – manager Shane Higginson and his staff will be there in ghostly attire and encourage patrons to make this night of frights a ghoulish affair. Then on Saturday night it’s all glitz and glam at Basalt’s Red Carpet Oscar event – your chance to shine! Dress to the nines and be in to win great prizes. What’s more there’s live music from 9pm till late. Finally, Sunday is Family Fun Day with a barbecue from 2pm and plenty for the kiddies too – this is their chance to dress up, be entertained by a clown and face painters with candy ﬂoss and toffee apples for extra cheer. Some of you may have missed Tuesday’s $4 desserts but the good news is, there’s still a chance to tuck into the original Basalt menu at original prices. It’s available every night this week until Sunday. What better way to take a trip down memory lane? And last but not least, loy- alty members can enjoy loyalty specials every night this week between 5pm and 9pm – now what better way to get in the party mood and let your hair down?
