Independent coffee brand commits to permanent space at Liverpool One


Property group Grosvenor said Liverpool-based coffee retailer Bean, which operates locations across the North West, has opened a permanent space within the group’s Liverpool One shopping centre.

The store is located on Manesty’s Lane, having moved from its pop-up on South John Street.

Comprising 1,800 square feet and adding 42 seats, Bean’s new space is home to a cafe and enhanced retail space for customers to try and buy coffee-making equipment, from filters to espresso machines, incorporating coffee tastings, a dedicated “Brew Bar” and individual barista masterclasses.

Grosvenor said Bean’s move to permanent residence at Liverpool One reflects its commitment to supporting local businesses and bolsters the destination’s already diverse food and drink portfolio.

Alison Clegg, Managing Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor, said: “Bean’s move to a permanent location on Manesty’s Lane underscores our ability to help local businesses and entrepreneurs grow their businesses.

“Bean adds something different to Liverpool One’s already diverse mix of independent and international brands and we can’t wait to see them flourish in their new location.”

Jon Whyte, Managing Director of Bean, said: “We are very pleased to be operating from a permanent home at Liverpool One, building on the success we have already enjoyed in the destination through our short-term rental.

“At Bean, we love introducing people to specialty coffee, so our brew bar and coffee space are perfect for customers to explore many flavors from different origins, allowing them to take home the best tips and equipment. .”

Bean’s move follows a busy start to 2022 at Liverpool One, with three opening announcements – Gordon Ramsey’s Bread Street Kitchen on Paradise Street, high-end concept golf simulation On the Green in The Terrace and Rituals in South John Street – plus two other signing announcements to Timothy Oulton in Peter’s Lane and Russell & Bromley in South John Street.
