Loungers to open first North East site

11th April 2023 | Jack Oliver

Loungers is set to make its regional debut in the North East with the opening of Muro Lounge in Hexham, Northumberland.

The group, which operates the Lounge and Cosy Club brands, as well as roadside dining concept Brightside, now operates over 200 sites nationwide.

Muro Lounge will occupy a 8,484 sq ft former Argos site on Fore Street and is set to open in August. The restaurant group has submitted an application to create an outdoor seating area as well as for an alcohol licence for 10am to 12pm daily.

Last year, the group’s CEO Nick Collins said the North East was an area of interest following openings of Lounge in Northallerton, Ripon, and Scarborough, all in North Yorkshire.

The brand is set to open its Bianco Lounge in Leeds in May.
