Riders goes to Acacia Place


CLASSY: At Shs8,000, it is one of the most expensive places to buy a beer , but if that is too much then you are not the target clientele, writes EDGAR R. BATTE

Village Mall, Bugolobi-based Riders Lounge opened a sister branch at Acacia Place last weekend, giving city patrons another reason to enjoy their beer and food in a cosy, clean environment.
Its launch coincided with that of Castle Lite on draught which the beautiful ushers were kind to serve to revellers who flocked the new hangout.
There is a well-stocked bar, food and good service. The place will be open for breakfast, business lunches, kasikis, anniversaries and fine dining. Part of the establishment is a semi-open area, which allows free aeration and a view of traffic on Acacia Avenue.

There is a lounge and adjacent to it is a bar, with stools for those who might want to chat with the bar men and ladies. Beers go for between 8k and 10k.
There is enough dining space for those who pop in for a meal. For events, the hangout has an open-plan extension at the rooftop.
The place has been beautifully put together, with precise interior décor that creates a classy ambience. There is a fine fusion of wood, concrete, glass, steel and potted plans.
The décor is on point and as inviting as the customer care service by gents and ladies smartly clad in grey, black and red which are also the colours festooned to the walls and furniture of the hangout.
There are plasma screens at different points of the joint, creatively fitted in the wall, decked into wooden frames, with red colours in the background.
One of the proprietors of Riders, Stephen Ogesa said that they care to offer the best they can to customers to create a loyal clientele.
There is parking space for customers in the basement of the mall. Muscular ladies and gentlemen are on sight to take care of security issues.
