A swanky new café bar promising to be a "real home from home" opened its doors for the first time in Bromsgrove last week. 

Verraco Lounge, part of Loungers plc, moved into the former Superdrug store on the High Street on Monday, February 5. 

With its heavily patterned wallpapers, tiling and stripped wooden floors to its upholstered lounge chairs and original artwork, the new eatery is being marketed as the "perfect place to unwind".

"They are actively encouraged to connect with their communities by working with local groups, charities, organisations and businesses that are at the heart of the fabric of local life. 

"We are very much looking forward to welcoming local residents to Verraco Lounge."
