Tambo Lounge announces opening date and 25 jobs ahead of its Buttermarket launch in Newark Market Place
Tambo Lounge will open its doors on Wednesday, March 4, in the Buttermarket in Newark Market Place.
Loungers plc, the West Country-based restaurant/café/bar group says it will create 25 jobs with the opening of the bar.
The venue forms a major part of the redevelopment of the Buttermarket, which is being spearheaded by Newark and Sherwood district and Newark town councils since they bought the ailing centre.
The name has been chosen because Tambo is Spanish for milking yard, since the new Lounge is in the Buttermarket.
A Loungers spokesman said the company was hard at work, turning the site into a family-friendly retro-inspired cosy retreat, where eclectic artwork 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 customers all over the country.
A selection of games and books, colouring pencils and pads are available to keep children occupied.
Both vegan and gluten-free diners will be catered for.
The Tambo Lounge has partnered with the Shaw Mind Foundation, a charity offering mental health support.
Su Hallam, charity manager at Shaw Mind, said: “From what we have heard about the community plans for the Tambo lounge, with access for mothers with pushchairs, to quiet corners for people to come in and enjoy the atmosphere while collecting their thoughts, it sounds the sort of place wellbeing will be championed.”
Loungers has taken over and converted several former units in the historic Buttermarket, in the section bordering Middlegate and Chain Lane.
