THE Gin Lounge in Ilkley held a party to celebrate their first year in the town.

The business in Brook Street was opened by Lindsay Fitton and Rachel Yates on September 30, 2017 and has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months. The couple, who also married in June this year, organised a party celebrate the business milestone.

Lindsay said: “The evening was a huge success with a great turn out. We were packed to the brim. Customers who we class as friends brought gifts such as chocolates and flowers! We were overwhelmed with the support and love we felt on the night!”

Lindsay added: “We can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we opened the doors on 30th September 2017. What a year it’s been - we have had fantastic feedback and the business is continuing to grow. We have launched our own gin Brook St of Ilkley, we have got married, we now have the plans for extending the Edwardian Suites and another three hotel rooms will be open before Christmas bringing to five Edwardian themed hotel rooms with roll top baths and attention to detail like the Gin Lounge!”
