A NEW bar showing classic films could soon be on the way to Hinckley town centre, if given the ‘green light’ by Hinckley and Bosworth borough council’s licensing team.
It would be named ‘Epicurean Lounge’ and housed inside of the former Sewing Cafe on Upper Castle Street, which permanently closed its doors back in September.
A signposted premises licence posted on the front doors shows that the applicant, Ms. Claire Corbett, is looking to sell alcohol on the premises, play recorded music, and ‘occasionally’ show classic films.
It was officially registered as a company with Companies House in late September (Thursday, 28 September), with the business use ambiguously classed as: “Other retail sale in non-specialised stores”.
Construction work is well underway, with contractors inside today (Thursday, 16 November) transforming it from a sewing shop and eatery ready for the new use.
The Dictionary.com definition of ‘Epicurean’ says it is an adjective describing those “fond of, or adapted to, luxury indulgence in sensual pleasures, having luxurious tastes or habits, especially in eating and drinking.”
