A new cafe bar in Wellingborough held its opening night last night.

Castello Lounge is now open in the former McDonald’s site in Market Street.

The national company behind the venue has spent £625,000 transforming the former fast-food restaurant into a ‘retro home-from-home’ with dramatic artwork, oversized vintage sofas and statement light fittings.

It has created 25 jobs for the area and bosses say it will cater for all tastes throughout the day.

The chain has venues across the country including Kino Lounge in Kettering, and is planning to open one in Corby.
