FRESH food, a great atmosphere and brilliant live music have earned an awards nomination for a bar in the heart of Gloucester.
Cafe Rene, in Southgate Street, has been put forward for a Believe in Gloucester award in the best bar category.
Laura Woodbury-Smith, who regularly enjoys dining out there, said: "It has a great atmosphere for people of all ages. The food is fresh, well cooked and always enjoyable, not to mention the fact they host great events including the Renegade Festival and Gloucester Rhythm and Blues Festival. Cafe Rene is the place to be in Gloucester."
The cafe, which opened 10 years ago, is renowned for its live music.
General manager Chris Atine said: "The whole of management team are absolutely honoured. When we opened we did not just want to serve drinks but also to interlink this with food and create a hub, and it has worked.
"Gloucester does not have anything of this kind, so it would be great to see other new similar businesses coming into the area. Many people think that Cheltenham is better, but if you have a close look Gloucester is great with its countryside and great choices of schools. We have only been put forward because of the dedication and hard work of the whole staff and owner Paul Soden."
The Citizen's Believe in Gloucester awards are being made possible by Gloucester Quays, Gloucester City Council and Marketing Gloucester.
