Family friendly Vitello Lounge to open in Ilkley

Vitello Lounge opens in Ilkley tomorrow (Wednesday 20 March)

Loungers plc, the West Country-based café/bar group, is gearing up to open Vitello Lounge in Ilkley tomorrow (Wednesday 20 March) creating around 30 jobs for local people.

Loungers has transformed the former Banyan site on Brook Street - heavily patterned wallpapers, tiling and stripped wooden floors now feature alongside oversized vintage sofas, upholstered lounge chairs, eclectic artwork and statement wall and pendant lighting, creating a variety of cosy and elegant drinking and dining areas to choose from.

A real home from home, Vitello Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day with a varied and innovative all-day menu.  Whether it is a coffee with friends, a long lazy brunch with family or a relaxed dinner and drinks, Vitello Lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind in good company.

The all-day menu will feature everything from tapas and salads to burgers and buttermilk fried chicken, with vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet well catered for with their very own menus.

Particular attention will be paid to families with a selection of games, books, colouring pencils and pads on offer.  A full menu, high chairs and baby-changing facilities are also available for Little Loungers.

Gemma Irwin, Community Manager at Loungers, says: “We are delighted to be opening Vitello Lounge in Ilkley.  Our Lounges strive to put community at the heart of hospitality and our teams always go the extra mile to make a difference.  They are actively encouraged to connect with their communities by working with local groups, charities, organisations and businesses that are at the heart of the fabric of local life.  We are very much looking forward to welcoming local residents and shoppers to Vitello Lounge.”

Starting as they mean to continue, the team at Vitello Lounge has partnered with Good Neighbours Ilkley and will donate 50p from every burger and 20p from each coffee sold in the first month of trading to the charity.
