Change of site for indie coffee shops
TWO of Greater Manchester’s bestloved indie coffee shops have found new homes after losing their premises this year.
Lupo Caffè Italiano shut its respected Chapel Street shop last week after owner Nico Pasquali says he was served notice by his landlord.
It was a similar story for the owners of Northern Quarter coffee shop Idle Hands, which found itself homeless in July after the lease was terminated on the Dale Street unit it was due to move into.
Now both businesses are back on their feet with new premises in the pipeline.
Lupo Caffè Italiano will be reopening inside The Boatshed building on Exchange Quay in the coming weeks, Nico has revealed.
He tweeted: “I have been bursting to tell you! We have a new place!!!
“You will find us in new @urban_splash building, The Boatshed, on Exchange Quay in a few weeks!
“Thanks so much everybody for your support. See you at Lupo chapter two.”
Idle Hands owners Dave and Lucy Wolinski have also found new premises where they hope to reopen their shop after keeping things ticking over with a residency at street food fair GRUB.
They have yet to reveal the exact location of the unit, which they have exchanged an agreement to lease on, but said it would be in the Northern Quarter.
