A FORMER NIGHTCLUB in Hinckley town centre which was once used by many clubbers has been re-opened and transformed as a brand new town cafe.
Addylline Cafe, housed inside the former Voodoo Lounge club, opened with a ‘grand opening’ on Saturday (17 September) after a five-month-long wait. They mark the final occupant to have moved into the last of the Highcross Building’s three newly-created retail units.
They celebrated the grand opening with pink balloons – the brand’s signature colour – to mark the occasion and signify that they are finally open and trading to passers-by.
Inside, keen local foodies who are after a new spot to try out, are able to get their hands on cakes, pastries, tarts, and desserts, as well as both cold and warm drinks.
They also serve up a range of alcoholic drinks, after being granted a premises licence, meaning customers can have a catch-up and tipple with friends inside.
The downstairs area from the Voodoo Lounge days is publicly visible, but it has been barricaded off with a rope barrier, hinting that the area may not be for public use.
Addylline bosses have taken to their Google Maps profile to tell town-goers what they have to offer.
They explained: “We are welcoming you to have a taste of our delicious meals and desserts together with a hot drink or a soft drink. We are also organising parties for any events.”
They are open from 9am to 8pm on Monday to Thursday, and 9am to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. On Sundays, they are open from 9am until 4pm.
A Facebook page has been launched for the brand, yet at the time of publication (Monday, 19 September), it has no posts, images, or reviews.
And as we reported last week, over on Castle Street, works have started to resume on The Wild Lotus, a soon-to-open new coffeehouse. They will use locally-sourced produce, and it will serve as a space for creatives, parents, families to socialise.
The Wild Lotus’ food and drinks will be “packed with health-beneficial nutrients”.
