Hi Accents Lounge,
I visited you for the first time this evening. It’s quite the coincidence. Well, kind of. I was sitting in Insomnia this afternoon reading my book and having a coffee and I thought “why aren’t coffee shops open late? I like being up late but I don’t necessarily want to have to go to a pub”. I came to the conclusion that I wanted to set up my own coffee shop, have live bands and keep the place open until 4am. It’s just a dream, I don’t know if I’ll ever do it. Then Insomnia closed at 7 and so I went on my merry way. I walked passed your place while I was on my way to a gig that was on in Designst on George’s St. Intrigued I checked your opening hours…open until 11 and 10 on Sundays! WOW! I decided that I would definitely have to check you out at some point. I continued on to the gig. I looked in but decided I wasn’t in the mood for it. I wanted to check your place out more. So I did. I’m very glad I did. There is such a lovely atmosphere in there. Everyone’s so friendly and the seats are super comfortable. I felt really at home and I look forward to visiting you more often and bringing friends.
I know this is a bit of a strange email but I just wanted to praise you because I really love what you’re doing.
I wish you every success in the future and I hope to visit soon!
All the best,

Just wanted to say that I visited accents on Saturday with a friend, after many failed attempts (flying past in a hurry etc etc). And I just thought I’d drop a quick line to say that it was just so lovely! I’m a bit particular about my hot chocolates as my friends will testify to (I don’t drink coffee, just tea and hot choc) but I was mighty impressed I have to say. I just LOVE that it’s all couches and armchairs. I’m so so tired of hard uncomfortable chairs squashed into the table next to you. You have created my ideal coffee and tea lounge. And a particular mention about the staff, I was there from about 5pm to maybe 645pm and all staff were the best you could get! Friendly, helpful and so pleasant.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. I’ll definitely be back again, with friends and family in tow.
