The city’s commercial district has welcomed a new coffee bar and lounge ‘with a difference’ in the form of Barley & Beans.
Located at 17 Hatton Garden, the independent brand provides customers with first class food and drink around the clock, serving a wide selection of signature classics including all-day full English breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers and light bites – whilst also housing a fully-licensed bar complete with signature cocktails.
Director Nick Strauss said: “Our aim was to deliver a unique multi-purpose social venue whereby customers can relax, dine and socialise. For us it’s about to providing great service and food and drink that speaks for itself.
“Due to being in such close proximity to one of the city’s main universities and many major businesses, we wanted to pride ourselves on creating a great space for busy professionals. We have installed many plug sockets for laptops and phones, as well as projectors to enable customers to work outside of the office.”
To help support other independently ran businesses from around the region, Barley & Beans serves locally sourced hot beverages throughout their menus, which are supplied by firms such as Joe Black Coffee, which is based in Bootle, and Leaf on Bold Street.
Nick added: “So far the response from the public has been fantastic - therefore we hope to gain high recognition and continued custom as a result of our innovative offerings, ethical trading and personable approach.”
Barley & Beans is open Monday-Thursday 8am-9:30pm, Friday 8am-11pm, Saturday 9am-11pm and Sunday 9am-9:30pm.
