Whatever comments you have this place is going to a be STUNNING when finished…. it’s going to be a great place for just a coffee, some nibbles, listening to music, cocktails and even just chilling any time of the day.

I’ve spoken with the Operations Manager, Simon Baker, about the new venue and everyone’s really excited to bring this exciting opportunity to the people of Peterborough including creating a few more jobs too.

“We are delighted to announce that we will be opening a brand-new venue for the city of Peterborough around the end of May 2022, date to be confirmed. We have now been approved planning permission for a change of use from a previous charity shop to a cocktail bar and with drinks license approval around 23rd March 2022, we are very excited to get the venue underway with its beautiful refurbishment to bring something very different to the city of Peterborough.

Bijou is a brand-new venue situated on Bridge Street, Peterborough offering the very best selection of the highest quality Coffee, Cocktails, Wines, Drinks, Tapas, and Music. Our venue has been thoughtfully and beautifully designed to provide an intimate, contemporary, warm, and inviting Bijou environment set over 2 floors including our beautiful outdoor space.

We open from 8am with our extensive coffee menu to dine in or takeaway, plus we have our tasty tapas and snacks menu on offer from 10am daily. Our drinks menu has been constructed for the delights of everyone in mind, with a curated list of Wines, Champagne and Prosecco and cocktails celebrating seasonal ingredients plus our spirits, bottled beers and non-alcoholic options will suit all tastes.

Enjoy the beautifully designed surroundings of Bijou with our aim being for you to sit back, and relax with the sounds of Chill Out, Soul, Blues, Funk, R&B and Tropical House during the day the perfect place unwind and enjoy time with friends while watching the world go by.

During the weekend evenings in our Bijou basement, we have a mix of Live Jazz, Soul, Acoustic, Funk and R&B bands and artists plus an array of Live DJs too. We are also proud to have the legendary Jongleurs Comedy Club nights performing monthly along with other unique nights including our very own Cinema Club & Quiz Club!

With our cleverly designed areas we can accommodate private settings through to bigger social occasions, we offer so many options for you including private party occasion or hire.

Bijous’ clever design also features a 16-Seater Snug area, which can be privately booked for those intimate events, meetings, private dining, or our Bijou Basement which can hold up to 60 people for those special party events, gatherings, wedding receptions, meetings, or business conferences.

Work gets underway on Monday 14th March with the aim for us to open by the end of May, an exact date will be announced very soon indeed. In the meantime, we are asking for people to sign up to our Bijou Membership Scheme, which is free, and will give you up-to-date details on our opening, special pre-opening offers and deals plus a chance to purchase event tickets and bookings!
