We are so pleased to be associated with Torello Lounge in #Prestatyn
Loungers are supporting Prestatyn Dementia Friendly Community. Peter Harrison chair of the steering group comments ” We are very pleased to be working alongside Loungers. We are always looking for innovative ways our raising awareness of Dementia and the enthusiasm of the loungers team is fantastic”
Loungers – the West Country based restaurant/café/bar group is opening a brand-new site in Prestatyn on Wednesday 14th November 2018. Torello Lounge will open on the High Street, creating 25 jobs for local people.
Loungers have spent £650k transforming the site into a family-friendly retro-inspired cosy retreat, where eclectic artwork and quirky curios sit next to oversized vintage sofas and old school benches. Strikingly painted table tops and statement lighting, in Loungers’ eclectic style.
Particular attention has been paid to families – there is a fine selection of games, books, colouring pencils and pads, a full menu just for Little Loungers and high chairs and baby-change facilities.
Pete Dinsdale, operations manager, Loungers, said “We can’t wait to get in and get going at Torello Lounge and become involved in the community who we hope will love lounging as much as we do.”
Loungers supporting local causes
A community notice board is available for those wanting to publicise events and a book swap area is kept well stocked. The team will also be holding regular fund-raising events as part of their commitment to making a difference in the community.
With this in mind the team has chosen to support a local cause, Artisans Collective, a community facility based at the Old Library in Prestatyn, whose campaign to make Prestatyn Dementia Friendly has captured the hearts of the Torello Lounge team.
The team will all undergo training to become Dementia Friendly, an Alzheimer’s Society initiative, and will also raise funds for the cause by donating 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold during the first month of trading.
Torello Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day. Whether you’re looking for the best coffee in town, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch, Torello Lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The all-day menu features everything from an array of tapas and the famous Hero burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli, packed paninis and the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted… or there’s the ever-changing specials menu. Little Loungers, vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet are well catered for with their very own menus.

We are extremely proud to announce that The new Torello Lounge which is due to open November 14th 2018 will be a Dementia Friendly business from the onset.
When we get messages like this it really does make our day !
“I’m very keen for us to partner with a local cause that makes a difference in the community and yours has caught my eye immediately!”
“We are also keen for our team to speak to a Dementia Friends champion to ensure that Torello Lounge is up to speed and a home from home for all members of the community including people living with Dementia.”
So within a couple of days we met with Danny from the lounges group and the manager of the new cafe bar Meagan. It was fantastic that they were so keen to be Dementia Friendly from day One.
A lot of the things that are important to us as a dementia friendly organisation are also important to The lounges group. Therefore comments like every customer leaves happy” fit within our ethos.
“Our Lounge will be a home from home, offering delicious food and drinks, all day, on your doorstep.
We exist to bring people together and our unique atmosphere changes hour by hour with each new wave of customers.
Also we are proud of our Lounge and its community and our aim is simple: every customer leaves happy.”
We believe it is going to be an exciting time for both of our organisations, and are really looking forward to working with the team at Torello lounge.
Some other really good news is that we have just had some other local businesses contacting us wanting to become Dementia Friendly.
A busy time ahead for our dementia champions.
