Loungers, the West Country based Restaurant/Café/Bar group is opening a brand-new site in Bangor on Wednesday 16th January 2019. Clio Lounge will open on the high street, creating 30 local jobs – it is the second Lounge to open in North Wales, following Torello Lounge in Prestatyn in November.
Loungers have spent £700k transforming the site (formerly Blue Inc Clothing) into a family-friendly retro-inspired cosy retreat, where eclectic artwork and quirky curios sit next to oversized vintage sofas and old school benches, strikingly painted table tops and statement lighting, in Loungers’ eclectic style.
Particular attention has been paid to families – there is a fine selection of games, books, colouring pencils and pads, a full menu just for little Loungers and high chairs and baby-change facilities.
Pete Dinsdale, operations manager, Loungers, said “We can’t wait to get in and get going at Clio Lounge and become involved in the community who we hope will love lounging as much as we do.”
A community notice board is available for those wanting to publicise events and a book swap area is kept well stocked. The team will also be holding regular fund-raising events as part of their commitment to making a difference in the community.
“With this in mind the team has chosen to support two local charitable causes; Awyr Las, the North Wales NHS charity, and Happy Faces, who support disadvantaged children in the area. Both causes strike a chord with the Clio Lounge team, who will raise funds by donating 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold during the first month of trading.”
Clio Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day. Whether you’re looking for the best coffee, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch, Clio Lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The all-day menu features everything from an array of tapas and the famous Hero burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli, packed paninis and the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted… or there’s the ever-changing specials menu. Little Loungers, vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet are well catered for with their very own menus.
