New ‘food-led cafe/bar’ Maritimo Lounge opens for business

Ocean Village’s newest business, Maritimo Lounge, which describes itself as a ‘food-led cafe/bar’, opened its doors for the first time today. With breathtaking views across the marina, it is the first commercial opening of the new Admiral’s Quay development.

The relaxed restaurant space is spread over three floors and features an extensive all-day menu including brunch, tapas, burgers and panini, plus a cocktail menu. The quirky yet homely open space is dominated by dramatic lighting fixtures, an eclectic mix of furniture and portraits which adorn every wall.

‘The Lounges’ are informal, neighbourhood food led cafe/bars open all-day everyday where families, friends, and locals can come for a coffee, a drink, or something to eat in a relaxed comfortable environment. The interiors are comfortable, inviting, and a bit eccentric. Think of us as your home-from-home.

The Bristol-based company told us they are on an intense expansion drive, with 20 new lounges set to open around the country this year. The new restaurant at Ocean Village has created 25 new jobs in the area, including a kitchen staff of five, who have all been busy training at nearby Trago Lounge.

We were shown around the restaurant ahead of their grand opening party this evening. Take a look at these fantastic photos taken by our friends at MAD Photography!
