Paragon Arcade is home to many new and independent businesses.

Arcade street party returns – and one favourite has had a makeover

The monthly Paragon Arcade After:Hours event takes place tomorrow night, and one of the arcade’s most popular faces has got a fresh new look.

After:Hours sees the arcade’s businesses open late into the night, serving up special treats or something a little bit different.

Each month the cuisine takes on a different theme and this month it’s Spanish – so expect tapas, paella and lots of paprika.

And one of the arcade’s most popular businesses is unveiling a new makeover. Two Gingers Coffee House has reopened today following a refurbishment which includes a new bar area, which will now serve up natural wines and beers on draught, as well as its signature and much-loved coffee.

The coffee house will also now be serving up freshly baked bread, tarts, sandwiches and other treats – baked in-house.

The new-look Two Gingers offers more seating and will have longer opening hours.

The historic arcade has seen an incredible transformation over the past few years after being acquired by Allenby Commercial, which has refurbished the frontage of shops and attracted new businesses.

Georgia Allenby, design manager at Allenby Commercial, said: “The reason for hosting this reoccurring event is to breath some new life and hopefully new visitors into Paragon Arcade. Hull is lucky to have a handful of the region’s best independent businesses operating under one roof – so why not make a fuss of it and a night for all to enjoy their offerings.

“The arcade tenants actively work together along with Allenby Commercial to create a welcoming and interesting vibe on the event evenings. By doing this, it’s gradually re-introducing existing and new visitors to Paragon Arcade to showcase what we have on offer there. The tenants are all passionate, like-minded, independent business owners who all support each other and create a really lovely family feel to the place.”

The free After:Hours event takes place tomorrow night from 5.30pm to 10.30pm.
