THE Rose City's dining scene will receive a boost as doors to The Coffee Club swing open next week.

In what has been a speedy construction, the restaurant on the corner of Percy and Albion Sts is having its final touches this week in preparation for the big reveal.

Franchisees Peter and Lyndal Cook - hailing from Brisbane - are excited to see the pieces coming together and said they couldn't wait to share it with the town.

This Coffee Club will be equipped with a cafe, restaurant, bar and even a playground for the little ones.

"The playground is going to be great for mothers so when they drop their older kids off at school they can come in with the young kids who can play in the playground and they know they'll be safe," Mr Cook said.

The Coffee Club boasts a menu to tantalise all tastebuds from coffees and cakes to a hearty steak and bottle of shiraz.

Open seven days and seven nights, the new venue will be a great addition to the Warwick dining scene and has created 25 jobs, all filled by locals.

Down the road on Palmerin St, the Palace Hotel has also re-opened its doors under the ownership of Des Jurd and Chris Shaw.

Walls were stripped bare and re-plastered, fridges replaced, electrical work re-wired and manager Mr Jurd said they were ready for action.

"It's a new venue - it's not the old Palace inside," he said.

The restaurant and cocktail lounge opened at the weekend and the main bar will open tomorrow.

"We've had trouble with the phones so we've had no EFTPOS, but we have been told that should be fixed by (tomorrow)," Mr Jurd said.

About $100,000 has gone into the renovations at the Palace, and Mr Jurd was said the construction side of things were complete.

The drive-thru bottle shop on Percy St has also opened for business.

"It's got everything you'd ever want in a pub," Mr Jurd said.

Another nine jobs were created with the Palace re-opening.
