Loungers is preparing to open its latest Bristol site, which is being dubbed 'the Cathedral of all Cosy Clubs', in a move that will create 50 jobs.
The 31 Corn Street venue will be the food-and-drink chain's seventh Cosy Club restaurant-bar. Loungers, which is headquartered in Bristol, also runs 40 Lounge café-bars across the UK.
A former banking hall, the new Cosy Club features a decorative glass-domed ceiling, original cornicing and fresco work. It also incorporates custom-made chandeliers, polished Bath stone and a six-metre high bar carved from American oak.
Moreover, a development kitchen is built into the basement, which will enable executive chef Theo Guy to experiment with new dishes and expand the company's food offering.
Alex Reilley, managing director of Loungers, said: "We're delighted to finally be opening Cosy Club on Corn Street. Bristol is our home town and where Loungers and Cosy Club was born so to open such an exciting venue in the heart of this amazing city is a big deal for us."
The Bristol Cosy Club opens its doors on Friday, 13 June 2014.
