The Lounges to open Albero Lounge in Bedford

Published on 28 September 2017

The Lounges, the West Country based restaurant/café/bar group is opening a brand-new site in Bedford on Wednesday 4th October 2017.  Albero Lounge will open in the Cowper Building on Riverside Square, creating 25 jobs for local people.  

The Lounges have spent £761K 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, strikingly painted table tops and statement lighting, in the eclectic style much loved by Lounge aficionados.

Particular attention has been paid to families - there is a fine selection of games and books, colouring pencils and pads, a full menu just for Little Loungers and high chairs and baby-change facilities are available for the tiny ones.

Craig Williams, Regional Operations Manager, The Lounges, said “We’re really looking forward to throwing open the doors at Albero Lounge and showing the locals how to lounge in style. The team are looking forward to becoming party of the community and will support local groups and initiatives wherever possible.”

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 East Anglian Air Ambulance. Albero Lounge will donate 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold from their first month of trading to the charity. 

Albero Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day.  Whether you’re looking for the best coffee in town, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch, Albero Lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind.  The all-day menu features everything from their famous authentic tapas and Hero Burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli, packed wraps and the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted… or there’s the ever-changing specials board.  Little people, vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet are well catered for with their very own menus.
