A new bar and lounge is set to transport people back to the Roaring Twenties.

Dayzee Potter, who owns performing arts school Dream Academy, opened the new bar on Friday night.

Set over two floors, guests will be able to break out their best lindy hops and jitterbugs on the ground floor dancefloor and chill out in the upstairs 1920s-style smoking lounge.

Moondance also boasts cocktails featuring smoke and edible glitter thanks to their manager who used to be head of cocktails at The Savoy in London.

The building will also host a studio in the basement for students of Dream Academy, which teaches 350 students in classes around the county.

The academy offers coaching in singing, dancing and drama, and some students have gone on to perform in Britain's Got Talent and The Voice UK Kids.

Dayzee, 28, hopes to hold theme nights including West-End Wednesdays, an open mic night for people to belt out their favourite show tunes.

Upcoming theme nights could also feature The Great Gatsby and Peaky Blinders.

The Frindsbury resident said: "The Great Gatsby and Peaky Blinders are really big at the moment; there are Peaky Blinders bars popping up everywhere, so it is really on-trend."

The opening of Moondance comes after news that a Spanish and Latin American restaurant, Rico Sabor, is coming to Rochester.

That is due to open at the beginning of June offering tapas,paella, fajitas and nachos.

It will be in the former Castle Food and Wine store in the High Street and will cater for up to 100 diners.

It is owned by Julian Ramirez who opened up an eatery of the same name in Gravesend two-and-half years ago.
