Falco Lounge Opens In The Glass Works

Restaurant group The Lounges opened a new site in Barnsley last month, creating 30 jobs in the local area.

Falco Lounge became the first non-market occupier to open at The Glass Works, with the name a nod to the Barnsley-based story of Kes.

A community notice board will be available for those wanting to publicise events at the restaurant, as well as a book swap area. The restaurant group said it will also be holding regular fund-raising events.

David Shepherd, service director of Regeneration and Culture at Barnsley Council, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Falco Lounge to Barnsley. It is a great addition to the town centre and will play a key role in helping us create a thriving and vibrant town centre that gives our community what it wants, needs and deserves.

“Having Falco Lounge as a neighbour to the Library @ the Lightbox, our new state-of-the-art community hub and flagship facility, makes the proposition a very unique offer.

“The synergy between the Lightbox and Falco Lounge will create a wonderful experience for people and the Lounge brand really compliments the library offer and slots in perfectly with existing names in the town centre.”
