Cafe operator selected for EQ development

The reception area at EQ

Independent hospitality provider BaxterStorey is set to unveil a café and event space at CEG’s EQ development in the heart of Bristol.

A fitness suite with gym equipment, classes and health club changing facilities will also open.

The BaxterStorey ground floor café kitchen will “champion seasonality and local food heroes” alongside barista style coffee made from local roasters Extract Coffee.

Situated near to Bristol Temple Meads railway station, EQ is set to become home to HSBC, Evelyn, Arup and Paymentsense.

The ground floor café will be known as Press, in a nod to the former print operation at the site.

Louise Denton, managing director at BaxterStorey said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with CEG to bring an exciting hospitality venue to Bristol. They have a long-standing agenda of enhancing the workspace experience through sustainable initiatives, and their strong community focus aligns with our own values.”

Paul Richardson, investment manager at CEG, added: “It is fantastic to secure an independent hospitality provider with the kudos of BaxterStorey. With over 20 years of experience in creating beautiful spaces and fuelling customers with their innovative and exciting menus, we cannot wait to see what the team unveils at EQ.”

The all-electric EQ is the first building in the South West to announce a commitment to targeting Net Zero Carbon in operation.
