SOFFIO LOUNGE NOW OPEN IN STOURBRIDGE04/06/2021
A new cafe-bar is open in Stourbridge, bringing up to 30 new jobs to the town.
Soffio Lounge, part of the Loungers group that operates 30 Cosy Clubs and 140 Lounges across the country, has completed its fit out at 111, High Street, after agreeing a 15-year lease with commercial property group Evolve Estates, and is now open to the public.
Loungers snapped up the former Co-op after LCP, the national commercial property and investment group that manages the building on behalf of Evolve Estates, split the space to create a 3500 sq ft bar on the ground floor. LCP now hopes to convert the first floor space into residential accommodation.
The bar operator has spent more than £750,000 fitting out the bar and cafe, creating a relaxed environment for all-day dining, from breakfast to dinner, coffee, cocktails and wine. Soffio Lounge has created about 30 jobs – half of which will be full time.
A spokesman for Loungers said: “We’ve been looking for a suitable site in Stourbridge for some time and were only too pleased when LCP decided to split the larger space as it made it the right size for our operations.”
Barry Flint, asset manager for LCP, said: “Attracting a national and respected operator such as Loungers is great news for Stourbridge. It will bring a fresh dimension to the leisure scene in the town and bring welcome jobs to the local community.”
