    A contemporary bar and lounge area is soon set to open its doors at Sketchley Grange Hotel & Spa in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

    The popular hotel is currently undertaking a major £1.5m refurbishment programme across its premises, part of which includes a complete makeover of the area. The vision is to develop an open-plan space, with different areas each offering individual characteristics.

    Drew Keen of Keen As Mustard Design Studio is working on the project. He explains: “The lounge will have a softer feel. We want it to be cool but cosy and comfy so we’ve got a palette of steely greys and blacks against pink velvet fabrics.

    “For the bar we’re aiming for a warm yet opulent vibe with high poseur tables and high-back arm chairs. This space will have a mix of mustard yellows against bold blacks.”
    The bar area will also feature seating booths with televisions which can be linked up to a laptop – ideal for working professionals. Work started at the beginning of April and is expected to be finished in mid-June.

    Paul Noble, General Manager of Sketchley Grange, says: “This refurbishment will make Sketchley Grange a really appealing venue for local people to come and enjoy a drink or a meal. The new look will match the good-quality, well-established range of food on offer.”

    Nestled away in an enviable location on the borders of Leicestershire and Warwickshire, Sketchley Grange Hotel & Spa is a charming country house hotel boasting first-rate facilities and elegant accommodation.

    Originally established over 30 years ago, this stylish four-star hotel in Hinckley is undergoing extensive refurbishment, carefully ensuring its traditional character dovetails with the contemporary amenities and stylish guest bedrooms.
