A new restaurant has launched at a managed workspace location operated by Connect Derby.

Dreams Bistro has opened its doors at Riverside Chambers, in Full Street.
The bistro has been created by Christos Martzelou, his sister Eleni Martzelou and Ioanna Michailido, who purchased the business from Martyn Daykin, following his decision to close HIDE Burger Bar, which he had operated since 2018.

It serves contemporary Mediterranean and English cuisine, taken from a variety of culinary influences.

The restaurant recently celebrated its official launch with a weekend of festivities, including a ribbon cutting ceremony, which was carried out by Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby.

Ann said: “I am delighted to welcome Ionna, Christos and Eleni to the Connect Derby community.

“We have a diverse range of restaurants and cafes in our buildings – the addition of a contemporary European restaurant is exciting, and I’d like to wish them the very best of luck for the future.”

Refurbishment works were carried out ahead of the launch including redecoration and other interior improvements to create a lighter and more colourful and elegant look.

Ioanna said: “We’re excited to have opened our new restaurant in this fantastic Grade II listed former Magistrates’ Court building, which we hope will bring a whole new vibe to the Derby eating scene.

“We had been looking for a suitable location for a while, but when looked round Riverside Chambers, we knew immediately that it was the perfect place for our restaurant.

“We love the surrounding area, especially the river located nearby.

“Christos and I are both originally from Greece and have experienced lots of different cuisines, which we look forward to introducing to our diners.”
