Panero Lounge sits proudly on pedestrianised Palmerston Road and it’s got it all: it’s in the centre of Southsea, but only 10 minutes from the seafront; there’s huge floor to ceiling windows across the front that open right up onto an outdoor terrace; there’s a fantastic range of food and drinks (including full kids, gluten free and vegan menus) served in our a lovely big space that stretches back across two floors inside.

We’ve a bookswap, cosy chairs, tassel-y lampshades, big star lights, chandeliers, a big welcome to kids and dogs and we’ve even a very upbeat swimmer on the wall by the bar. Of course.

What is it that people love best about Lounging? Is it the food? The cocktails? Our lovely staff? Or the photo of the old boy on an airbed in his pants? Let’s see, shall we?
