ABOUT The Lounges (from The Lounges website)

Loungers was founded in 2002 by a trio of long standing friends, Dave Reid, Alex Reilley and Jake Bishop. Having spent years in the restaurant and bar trade – not to mention just as many propping up the bars in Bristol (all of course in the name of research) – they decided it was time they did their own thing. The motivation was simple and very selfish; they wanted somewhere to drink themselves.

An empty opticians on North Street, Bristol seemed to fit the bill. It had the necessary planning permission, was just about big enough and in reasonable condition. The ‘shell’ included a kitchen so they accepted that they would be doing a bit of food, and after a few months of sort-of-not-knowing-what-they-were-doing, Lounge opened on Tuesday 29th August 2002.

They liked it a lot and so, it seemed, did a lot of other people. They pondered whether they should open another one, maybe on Gloucester road, and in what was an absurdly short space of time they did, and Loungers was born. The rest, as they say, is history…

The Food

I have been to the Castello Lounge in Wellingborough and The Nautico Lounge in Weymouth and plan on trying more, after all, there is one in my local town of Stroud. With a fun, bright and trendy set up, this place is perfect for everyone. Bring the kids as there are board games to play too.

The menus are yummy and make it hard to pick.

The Lounges are even open for breakfast so if you are craving a Full English or American Styled brekkie such as pancakes or pancakes and bacon and eggs then this is your stop.

Have a look at menu examples here;

The Bar

One of the most important factors for many. Go to the bar with friends and have a selection on Cocktails, Martinis, Majitos, Wine, Beer and more. With great music playin’ the environment is a great pre-gig start. Menu here

I highly recommend this place to go with friends or family, it is an awesome hang.
