A newly refurbished retro-inspired lounge costing hundreds of thousands of pounds is opening its doors to the Northampton public tomorrow.
Zapato Lounge, which is at the heart of the town centre, has cost investors £525,000 to transform the Welsh House building on Market Square into a cosy retreat.
The Loungers-branded restaurant and bar is set to create 20 new jobs and will cater for “all different tastes throughout the day.”
Loungers manager Craig Williams, said: “We’re honoured to be breathing life back into such an iconic building. Welsh House is at the bustling heart of Northampton and we can’t wait to throw open our doors.
“The team at Zapato Lounge is looking forward to becoming the party of Northampton’s community and will support local groups and initiatives wherever possible.
“A community noticeboard is available for those wanting to publicise events and a book swap area is kept well stocked. “The team will also be holding regular fundraising events as part of Loungers’ commitment to making a difference in the community.”
Zapato Lounge offers its consumers an all-day menu, which features everything from tapas, chilli beef and “the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted.”
The lounge, which prides itself on its quirky decor, will also offer a menu especially for children.
Opening times are from 9am to 11pm.
