Specialist coffee operator makes its debut at Liverpool One

Speciality coffee chain, Black Sheep Coffee, has opened a site at the Liverpool One retail centre, site owner Grosvenor has revealed.

The all-day venue has opened on Paradise Place, taking a 1,800 sq ft of space.

It will serve Black Sheep Coffee’s full range of coffee beans and brews, including its signature Black Hoof drink.

Bagels, toasties, organic smoothies and shakes, and Norwegian waffles are also on offer during the day.

In the evening, the menu switches to a selection of alcoholic beverages such as craft beer, wine, and espresso martinis, all served up alongside sourdough pizza and free popcorn. The interior of the new Black Sheep Coffee has been fitted out with street art and murals unique to Liverpool One.

Rob Deacon, senior asset manager at Grosvenor, said: “We are so pleased to have welcomed a UK renowned brand like Black Sheep Coffee to Liverpool One, and are proud to be the location of their city debut.

“Liverpool One is a hub for high quality F&B (food and beverage) operators, including the likes of Mamasan, Maggie Fu and the recently opened Slim Chickens, and the newly opened Black Sheep Coffee, with its dynamic day-to-night offering, sits comfortably among them.”

Eirik Holth and Gabriel Shohet, co-founders of Black Sheep Coffee, said: “We are thrilled to finally be opening our first location in Liverpool and this is a crucial part of our continued expansion across the UK.

“Liverpool is such a cool and vibrant place and it is incredibly exciting to become a part of this great city.”

The arrival of Black Sheep Coffee follows a successful 2022 so far for F&B at Liverpool One, joining Gordon Ramsay’s premium casual dining concept Bread Street Kitchen, and North West coffee operator, Bean, both of which opened earlier this year.

Metis and CBRE acted for Liverpool One, while Black Sheep Coffee dealt direct.
