Elsie May’s Electric Lounge Cafe & Cocktail Bar St Neots


This family-run café and bar opened in December 2018, restoring the former electricity showrooms to their former glory, and serving up delicious food and tasty drinks.

Steeped in history, the building opened in 1929 as the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Huntingdonshire Electricity Company Showroom.


The grandeur of the building made a real statement with its high ceilings, oak parquet floors and large windows, helping to display the wonders of electricity and showcase why gas powered lamps were to be relegated to the past.

Fast forward to 2018 and the new owners have restored the building to its former glory, bringing it back to life for the modern world in the form of a family run café and bar. Named in honour of the owner’s grandmother, Elsie May, who always dreamt of having her own tea room one day, Elsie May’s Electric Lounge serves tasty homemade fayre and delicious drinks - all within the original features of this impressive space. 

When the weather is warmer there is a fantastic outdoor seating area for customers to enjoy - perfect! Dogs are welcome too, so why not bring your pet pooch along?
