Welwyn Garden City cafe opens latte at night

A POPULAR WGC cafe is now opening in the evening, providing the town with an new, sophisticated nightspot.

Since Thursday, Bebo Deli Cafe in Stonehills will be staying open till 10pm, in a bid to add a bit more variety to the town’s nightlife.

It’s part of a trial run which will see the cafe open late every week on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, offering all-new evening and tapas menus for customers looking for a change to the usual pub or restaurant.

The idea, said managing director Chris Payne, came about through a mixture of customer feedback and simply spotting a gap in the market.

“There’s not that many places open in WGC at night,” said Chris.

“What we’re hoping to do is offer something a bit different.

“In the area there’s a lack of coffee houses that are open late, and we thought there’s potentially a demand for something like this.

“If it’s a success then hopefully we’ll be able to open every night of the week. At the moment it’s a case of suck it and see.”

For the first few weeks, the unlicensed cafe will be running a Bring Your Own policy, with a �1 corking charge for bottles of wine and 50p a beer.

It is also hoping to have unintrusive live jazz and folk music on the opening night, and on a regular basis thereafter.

Of course, if customers think there is still something missing, Bebo’s commercial director Ilker Unlu-Soyer would love to hear how they can improve.

“Unlike other coffee shops, we can tweak things,” he said. “That’s how this cafe developed – it’s not the original concept; it’s been tweaked to accommodate people’s wishes.”

Bebo Deli Cafe also offers a catering service for business lunches, training sessions, funerals and parties.
