A new cafe bar is on the way for Ipswich town centre, taking up residence in part of the former Fire & Ice nightclub.
The landmark Victorian building in Tacket Street which was once home to the First Floor Club and later Fire & Ice, has been transformed to create a modern development offering housing and retail opportunities.
The upper floors have been converted into town centre apartment homes by developer Joe Fogel and is now known as Charlotte House.
Meanwhile, there are three retail/commercial units on the ground floor which have been modernised and prepared ready for new tenants to move in.
And one is being converted into a new cafe bar, to be known as The Bloom Lounge.
On its Facebook page, the Bloom Lounge is promising brunch, coffee, cakes, juices and cocktails.
Property developer Joe Fogel said: "It is really good to see all the commercial units let and being brought into use by local businesses and start-ups."
