A new quirky cafe is about to open in Moseley.
The Sorrento Lounge will be opening its doors for the first time next week after moving into Moseley’s former Prezzo Italian restaurant.
The small Lounges chain, which already has branches in Kings Heath, Harborne, Sutton Coldfield and Mere Green, will be opening in Alcester Road.
The Lounges have spent £542,000 transforming the site into a family-friendly retro-inspired cosy retreat, where eclectic art work and quirky curios sit next to oversized vintage sofas and old school benches.
Operations manager Joe Sadler said: “We’re really looking forward to throwing open the doors at Sorrento Lounge and showing the locals how to lounge in style. The team are looking forward to becoming part of the community and will support local groups and initiatives wherever possible.”
What do you get with a Loungers’ Lounge?
Families will certainly welcome their policy towards children, which includes games, books, colouring pencils, pads and high chairs.
All of the other Lounges in Birmingham are described as dog friendly, so expect a few four-legged friends after they’ve been walking in the nearby private Moseley Park.
A community notice board is available for those wanting to publicise events and a book swap area is kept well stocked.
The team will also be holding regular fund-raising events as part of their commitment to making a difference in the community.
With this in mind, the team have chosen to support local charity Moseley Community Development Trust.
Sorrento Lounge will donate 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold from their first month of trading to the charity.
Sorrento Lounge says it will cater for all tastes throughout the day. The all-day menu features everything from their famous authentic tapas and Hero Burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli, packed paninis and mac and cheese.
Little people, vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet are well catered for with their very own menus.
What is Lounges?
The company was founded in 2002 by three friends, Dave Reid, Alex Reilley and Jake Bishop.
It's first site was a former opticians on North Street in Bristol, but Loungers is no stranger to Birmingham, having expanded here rapidly with its series of Lounges where customers go ‘lounging’.
The small Lounges chain already has branches in Kings Heath, Harborne, Sutton Coldfield and Mere Green.
It is also planning to open a venue in Solihull this year.
Lounges will be hoping its quirky, cafe-bar culture – and the fact that no two bars are ever alike – will be a hit in Moseley.
