Loungers has taken on the former Prezzo in Penarth, Glamorgan, to relocate the town’s Ocho Lounge.
Ocho Lounge has traded from its current site on Windsor Road since June 2008 and Loungers has been searching for an alternative larger capacity site for some time. This is the first time in Loungers’ history a site has moved and will see £650,000 invested in the site, which is on the same road.
The new neighbourhood café bar will have 150 covers trading across two floors, more than doubling the capacity of the original Lounge.
Jeremy Burton-Dickie, operations manager for Loungers in Wales, said: “These are really exciting times for Ocho. We’ve massively enjoyed being part of the Penarth community since we opened 10 years ago and it has been fantastic to see the high street develop and evolve during this time. We look forward to welcoming our regulars back to our new-look Lounge, as well as introducing new customers to enjoy Ocho’s legendary hospitality. We’ve been looking to give Ocho a bit of a spruce up for some time now, so getting the opportunity to move over the road to slightly bigger premises was ideal.”
