WATCH: Chester’s new social dining venue, Izakaya Lounge enjoys successful launch


One of Chester’s newest restaurants, the social dining venue Izakaya Lounge on Pepper Street, has enjoyed a super successful first month since launching at the end of June.

The Pan-Asian eatery and bar is a joint venture from Pheby Food Concepts Group Ltd (PFC Group) and Erraji Hospitality Limited, which have created more than 20 jobs for the city as well as breathing new life into an empty unit in the city centre.

“We always hoped for a successful start for Izakaya Lounge,” says joint owner Des Pheby. “But we’ve been overwhelmed by the support from the city and the positive feedback we’ve had from customers.
“While I can’t deny there haven’t been some tense moments – like the tills going down on our opening weekend – I’ve been so impressed with how our new team of hospitality staff have handled any teething problems and gone above and beyond to offer customers a unique and special dining experience.”

Offering a menu of authentic flavours from China, Japan, Thailand, Korea and beyond, the Izakaya concept is to dine socially, sharing small plates of Pan-Asian dishes whilst drinking and enjoying live entertainment. With that in mind, private booths can be reserved for an entire evening of revelry, and bottomless brunches are featured at weekends.
Upcoming events on the Izakaya Lounge social calendar include the Chester Comedy Festival (Wednesday, July 21), which offers guests a sharing platter of favourites from the menu followed by a comedy show from three of the comedians on the festival’s line-up.
“It’s a special time to be in hospitality as we welcome customers who have longed to be in a social atmosphere again following Covid-19,” said Mr Pheby. “I hope that over the summer we can continue to safely provide those who walk through Izakaya Lounge’s doors with what they’ve been waiting for: superb food, flowing drinks and a lively atmosphere, which are all here to be shared and experienced with the friends they’ve missed for the milestone celebrations they had to cancel.”
