The Real Housewives of Cheshire‘s newest star Lystra Adams has revealed plans to launch new restaurant concept Boujee in Manchester.

Lystra, who revealed on the hit ITV show that she was as an investor behind the all-pink 202 Kitchen in the city centre, is now taking over the Bridge Street site for her new venture Boujee, which she will also launch at a new site in Liverpool in December.

Meanwhile 202 Kitchen will move to a new, as yet to be revealed, permanent location in the city centre.

Naomi Campbell lookalike Lystra has been a big hit with viewers since joining the 12th series of the ITVBe reality show which follows the glamorous lives of rich and famous ladies of Cheshire.

The body positive entrepreneur has not been afraid to showcase her cosmetically-enhanced curves on the show, and has been seen in a number of scenes in the new series at the all-pink 202 Kitchen, which featured a very glamorous Instagram room with life-sized Barbie boxes and Barbie dream house.

Her first scenes on the show saw her talk about her investment in the new bar, and talk about how pleased she was with the all-pink venue.

There will be a new look for the Boujee restaurant and bar at the Bridge Street which has yet to be revealed, although it will remain all-pink.  No word yet if those so-Instagrammable Barbie boxes will remain, but we live in hope.

Lystra said: “Boujee is a vibrant, trend-driven concept packed with personality and truly has something for everyone.

“My investment in Boujee reflects the wider confidence behind the concept. We will be looking forward to sharing the Boujee experience as soon as we can.”

Meanwhile construction work is ongoing at the new Liverpool site, at the Liverpool One shopping mall, with plans to launch on December 4th, pending the removal of coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the region.

Lystra says they are all set to make that Liverpool’s “most instagrammable venue” with plenty of social media photo opp props like a convertible pink car, giant candy area and a themed “Alice in Boujeeland” area.

As for the 202 Kitchen brand – which proved popular with the Manchester crowds since launching earlier this year – the Birmingham-based owners say they have plans to open a “bigger and better” site in the city centre soon.

Posting on their instagram, owners said: “We’re extremely excited to announce that after a huge few months for our pop up in Manchester, we’re closing our current venue and moving to a bigger, better and permanent location in the city.”

Meanwhile Lystra and her Boujee restaurant in Manchester say they hope to open on the weekend of December 3rd on Bridge Street – posting a video of the star doing a show-around on their official Instagram on Monday.

That, of course, will depend on the expected announcements from Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week on the new tier system of coronavirus restrictions to be brought in across the UK from December 3rd.
