Loungers, the Bristol-based pub and bar group, has opened its latest venue - The Cosy Club in Taunton. The group, which recently signed a deal for its 17th site, has spent £350,000 on what it hopes will become a new suburban format for the group. Alex Reilley, Loungers’ managing director, has recently announced an acceleration of the bar group’s growth plans. The group, which already has 14 Lounges across the South West and Wales, is targeting 40 sites by 2013 - eight to 10 of which will be Cosy Clubs. The Hunt Court site has created 30 jobs.
