Clos­ing bash marks end of era for eatery

After two years of ser­vice in Ex­mouth, 5 Kennedy St Restau­rant is clos­ing its doors this month.

To cel­e­brate its time in Ex­mouth, owner Dex­ter Stone is throw­ing a Clos­ing Bash on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 22, be­fore he shuts up shop the next day.

The cock­tail party event is be­ing kept ex­clu­sive, with only 100 tick­ets on sale, and there will be live mu­sic by The Wannabees and Colin Dodds, as well as an open bar, canapes and cock­tails.

Mr Stone said he had de­cided to ac­knowl­edge the oc­ca­sion with a party after learn­ing the new own­ers were go­ing to re­name the restau­rant and re-open it as a mi­cro­brew­ery.

“It gave me an op­por­tu­nity to close down 5 Kennedy St as such ... and to throw one last bash,” he said. “We used to throw a cou­ple of par­ties each year.

“We’d have an open­ing bash, fly a Mex­i­can band over (for an­other), a first birth­day and a few oth­ers in be­tween.

“It was more about keep­ing in­ter­est high in the busi­ness.”

“And now that we’re clos­ing it’s again an ex­cuse to throw one last bash and go out with a bang.”

Mr Stone said run­ning 5 Kennedy St, his first ven­ture in Ex­mouth, had been a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence.

“It re­ally has been won­der­ful — Ex­mouth is a very neat lit­tle place,” he said.

“The restau­rant can feed about 100 peo­ple and we fill up most seats most nights.”

Tick­ets to the 5 Kennedy St clos­ing party cost $85.
