Loungers, the West Country based restaurant/café/bar group has opened a brand new site in Monmouth. Named Estero Lounge, the new venue occupies Commerce House, a refurbished building in Monnow Street and has created 20 jobs for local people. Loungers has invested £575K transforming the new site into a retro home from home, where dramatic art work sits next to oversized vintage sofas and statement light fittings, in the eclectic style much loved by Lounge aficionados.

Jeremy Burton-Dickie, operations manager, Loungers, said:  “Monmouth is the perfect location for our Lounge concept. There’s already a thriving and vibrant community and we’re delighted to be playing our part in the foodie scene here. Residents will be served by the very best - our new team is passionate about hospitality. Our excellent ‘on the job’ training programme ensures our staff are at the top of their game.”

Ian Newbury, Surveyor with Cooke & Arkwright's Retail & Leisure Agency, who acted for the private landlord in the letting said, “This is an excellent property and location for Estero Lounge to occupy. Commerce House is a striking building which has been redeveloped to a high standard and extends to almost 5,000 sq ft over two floors. It is situated in a prominent position on Monnow Street close to nearby retailers, making it convenient for shoppers and visitors to the town. The landlord is pleased to have attracted such a high quality tenant who will add to the leisure offering in Monmouth.”

Cooke & Arkwright are extremely professional and have carried out a number of successful appeals on behalf of SWP.
