A restaurant and music venue in Corby town centre is re-opening after a £50,000 investment by its new owners.
Cafe Con Leche in Queens Square has been taken over by Clearkut Leisure Group, which owns the recently-opened Lounge 66 and Rubix nightclub in Corporation Street. It will be managed by Arron Wildman and will employ 16 people.
Mr Wildman said: “We are looking forward to making this a successful venture which will be a real boost for Corby town centre.”
As well as offering food, the venue will have live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, including local talent.
Refurbishment work is being carried out before the launch night on Thursday, May 2, when local musicians Adele Kirk and Mark Gill will be performing.
Cafe Con Leche will open from 8am until 11pm Sunday to Wednesday and from 8am until 1am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Mr Wildman said: “We have been planning this for a number of months to make sure everything is right and in place. We will be using locally-sourced produce and will offer an extensive coffee menu.
“We are also hoping to start a lunchtime delivery service for town centre workers.
“The emphasis is on really good food and great live music and we also plan to make use of our brilliant outdoor area.”
The previous owners closed the venue last June.
