Work has now been completed on the £70,000 makeover of the coffee house and bar area at Lynn’s Corn Exchange which will be reopening to customers this weekend.
This is one of the first steps towards completion of the Tuesday Market Place regeneration work in which the borough council is developing the area into a more continental space.
The improvements to the Corn Exchange include the upgrading of the whole of the front-of-house bar, furniture, poster boards and information, heating and decoration of the whole foyer.
The investment has resulted in a better and a fit for purpose bar allowing for quicker service for a potential 700 customers during a busy evening’s show.
New furniture and a re-shape of the bar has also resulted in more floor space, allowing customers to mingle easier in the evenings.
A spokesman said: “The coffee bar will be relaunched with more emphasis on the Grab-and-Go sandwiches and snacks, but still using fresh, quality produce which our customers have been accustomed to, along with our great tasting coffee.
“For the launch day, from 11am to 2pm, all food and drinks will be just £1 and our loyalty card makes every meal deal you buy even better value.”
New bistro-style tables and chairs will still be available inside for those wishing to stay for a more leisurely coffee, along with newspapers, BBC TV News and free public wi-fi access.
Tables and chairs will also be available outside the venue as part of the larger plans for the Tuesday Market Place.
The coffee bar is set to open on Monday, September 9, dependent on the completion of outside works in the square.
The autumn season at the venue is kicked off tomorrow night by the Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company with It’s Goona Be a Great Show.
Packed full of mischief, madness, music and mayhem, plus their pick of pop music through the decades to add to the fun in this annual revue show full of family entertainment.
