New coffee shop to create seven jobs in Nottingham

Birdhouse Café manager Emma Toplis and director Dan Shaw

A new Nottingham coffee shop is set to create seven jobs when it opens next week.

Plans for Birdhouse Café were first revealed last June – it will now open on 23 April on the corner of Middle Pavement and Weekday Cross. The 21-capacity venue says it will work in partnership with local brands including, 200 Degrees Coffee, Ugly Bread Bakery and Belvoir Fruit Farms.

Birdhouse Café will also provide retail space to support small and start-up craft, art, lifestyle and fashion brands to showcase their talent.

Dan Shaw is the director of Birdhouse Café and says he is looking forward to using his 30 years of experience working with retail start-ups and household names to further support Nottingham’s thriving independent scene.

“Nottingham is a vibrant and varied city that manages to combine big brands and emerging talent very well,” said Shaw. It’s the perfect location for us to launch the Birdhouse Café concept and provide a space where customers can relax and be inspired.

“We make no secret of the fact that we’re fiercely loyal to the community, and the team is really excited to start working with local businesses to find creative ways for them to benefit from Birdhouse Café. Whether that be an artist using our walls to display their art or an independent designer selling their own range of greetings cards, we want people to know that Birdhouse Café is a place for everyone.

“We also arrive at intu Broadmarsh at an exciting time and we’re very much looking forward to being part of the centre’s future.”
