Bosses in Norwich are creating new restaurants and bars adorned with flowers and painted in pastel shades designed for people to post on social media.

Flower swings and selfie mirrors are being put in bars specially decorated by interior designers. And colourful cocktails like an Aperol spritz or watermelon sharer for two are being added to the menu so that revellers really can strike the perfect pose for Instagram or Facebook.

The latest such venue, Cecilia's cocktail bar on Upper King Street, has been converted from space within Bar 11 although with different management. It's decorated on a pink theme with floral swings - seats with ropes entwined with faux flowers - and a large selfie mirror adorned with flowers above. Drinks are to match with 'tasty tequilas' in strawberry, raspberry, passion fruit or peach or pink sambuca and tequila rose.

One party-goer posted on Cecilia's Facebook page: "I could not recommend Cecilia's enough. We hired it from 2.30pm onwards for a hen party and it was outstanding. The decor, the ladies behind the bar, the cocktails, literally everything was faultless." Another posted: "The most beautiful decor, will definitely be returning."

A spokesman for Cecilia's said: "We are marketing Cecilia's as a bit of a mystery world, it is an entirely new, separate venture to Bar 11 with no connection. So far, it's been a big success."

Erpingham House, 22, Tombland, has also transformed a period building into the perfect 'Instagrammable' destination with a floral entrance and interiors using pinks and other pastel colours as well as a flower wall ideal for selfies, all created by Berrys & Grey interior designer Nicole Pugh.

Erpingham House offers a menu which is completely plant-based and mostly gluten-free. Loui Blake, who runs it, said: "Baby showers have been particularly popular, we've done a lot recently because the food we offer is ideal for someone who's pregnant and it's a growing market," Then there's a complete pink coloured lounge at the recently renovated Boudicca Hotel, just outside Norwich, sponsored by Veuve Clicquot champagne and being marketed for wedding planning.
