The team behind the new venture has this week begun training and met colleagues at its sister site – Zapato – in Northampton.

Gemma Irwin, the Loungers’ community manager, said: “Our Lounges strive to put the community at the heart of hospitality, and our teams always go the extra mile to make a difference.

“They are actively encouraged to connect with their communities by working with local groups, charities, organisations, and businesses that are at the heart of the fabric of local life.”

The restaurant and bar promises to offer a "relaxed" and "welcoming space," catering to everyone with gluten-free, vegan, and children's menus included.

Families are going to receive particular consideration, with a selection of games, books, colouring pencils, and pads on offer, according to the Loungers team. A full menu, high chairs, and baby-changing facilities are also available for ‘Little Loungers’.

The restaurant and bar at unit 29 on the corner of Bowen Square and Foundry Place will generate around 30 jobs.
