On 6th December 2017 I was invited to have a tour around The Jelly Lounge on William Street, Windsor ahead of the grand opening at midday on 7th December 2017. Upon arrival I was introduced to co-founders Tamar and Jenny who showed me around the new family club and explained their vision and passion for the club - a place for families to come, somewhere for children to have fun, explore and play whilst being with their families but also a place to give parents, grandparents and carers a chance for a drink, a bite to eat and an environment to meet friends or an environment to work from.
Upon entering The Jelly Lounge it’s the bold bright colours that instantly welcome you alongside the front desk with smiling face. Once in you enter the eatery lounge where you can work from or grab a fresh juice, tea, coffee, coconut porridge, smashed avocado and poached eggs or club beef burger to name a few options on the menu. There is a wide selection of food for children and babies too. It's was great to see the food looking so fresh and appetising. Alongside the eatery is the baby lounge complete with the most beautiful jelly fish, drawing station, computers, play kitchen and a great selection of toys plus more seating and tables for adults. As part of the Jelly Lounge experience there are buddies managing the baby lounge so you can have some extra eyes on your little ones, who interact and stimulate play.
In the next room is a giant soft play area, again with buddies there to stimulate safe play and imagination amongst the children. There are lots of slides and the most amazing embroidery tree.
At the back of The Jelly Lounge are three individual rooms. These are used for workshops (Mini Master-Chef, Mini-Rockers and Mini-Matisse-ers) which incur an additional charge and you can also host your family parties at the venue. What I really liked is that there is the ability to merge all three rooms together to make one larger function room. One of the rooms is also equipped with a kitchen area. Whilst we were at The Jelly Lounge a Christmas wreath making workshop was taking place and was well supervised by the staff. The resources were also all pre-prepared and there was a little apron for each child to wear during the session.
There is buggy parking next to the coat hooks and baby changing facilities.
It was great to see what The Jelly Lounge has to offer and believe this venue is a great addition to Windsor and Berkshire and I can't wait to make use of the facility in the not too distant future with my family.
Thanks Tamar, Jenny and team for giving us such an insightful tour.
