C.U.P. Speciality Coffee & Tea

 

76 Park Street – previously home to Moss Bros, which closed in 2015 – is set to be given a new lease of life as C.U.P Speciality Coffee & Tea.

Property developer Urban Creation has taken over the whole of the neglected Grade II listed building, transforming the upper floors into six one-bed student apartments, and the ground floor front and lower ground floor have been upgraded and remain as retail and office space.

Independent coffee shop C.U.P. Speciality Coffee & Tea will be opening in the space fronting Park Street. The rear ground floor of the property is to become Urban Creation’s own new offices, with its team relocating from its existing base on Great George Street.

Maria Fyssaki, co-owner of C.U.P. Speciality Coffee & Tea, which opened its first coffee shop in Reading in 2015, said: “We are excited to open our third branch in Bristol, a vibrant city known for its support of independent businesses like ours. 76 Park Street is an amazing location for our business, as it’s right near to the university and at the beating heart of the city. The building itself is a real gem and has been renovated beautifully.”

If everything goes to plan, the coffee shop will open in March, with the exact date to be announced.

Urban Creation has carefully restored period features at 76 Park Street, reinstating historic details that had been lost for decades, partly as a result of bomb damage during the Second World War.  The 1970s shopfront has been replaced, returning the front closer to its original designs.  Work has included the reinstatement of blocked up windows, cleaning the original brickwork and replacing the sash windows.
