Up to 30 jobs to be created at new Nottingham cafe and wine bar

A new cafe and wine bar is set to create up to 30 jobs in Nottingham city centre.

Thea Caffea and Wine Bar will re-open at Enfield Chambers with former customers at the helm of the business, which closed last year.

The new ownership team of Peter Shores, Craig Auslebrook, Connor Cargill and Gina Nikogosian have take over the business after a deal brokered by Frankie Labbate of Box Property.

Auslebrook said: “Essentially we will be trying to bring back everything about the original cafe which was loved by the loyal clientele.

“The extensive range of teas, quality infusions and brunch/light lunches will be back but we will be adding a more extensive range of tapas with vegan/veggie options, healthy salads and high end coffees and expanding the wine and fizz selection to encourage trading hours to extend in to the early evening.

We also plan to introduce a number of diverse events including birthday parties, baby showers, dog birthdays, Sunday brunches, piano/sax/cello and jazz sessions and one-off music events. We will also be focusing on corporate event offerings in the run up to Christmas.”

Auslebrook said that between 20 and 30 jobs will be created, including waiting staff, front of house, chef/pastry chefs, bartenders and management.
