190 Corporation Street turns over a new leaf for Boston Tea Party Group19th December 2012


A Bristol-based coffee shop chain has opened its first branch in Birmingham, after taking up residency in a famous old building next to the city’s law courts.

The building, at 190 Corporation Street, was best known as a Yates’s Wine Lodge, but closed when that company went into administration in 2008.

Since then, 190 Corporation Street has been home to a number of short-lived ventures, but has now become a branch of the Boston Tea Party Group Ltd, in a deal arranged by the Birmingham office of Cushman & Wakefield.

Boston Tea Party Group is a family-owned business founded in 1996 and has four branches in Bristol, and six elsewhere in the South West. It also has one other Midlands outlet, in Worcester.

The new Birmingham branch has been taken on a ten year lease at a starting rent of £37,500 per annum.

Cushman & Wakefield acted for the landlord, London-based La Salle Investment Management.

Ed Purcell, retail surveyor at Cushman & Wakefield in Birmingham, said: “Boston Tea Party has spent a lot of money fitting out 190 Corporation Street and we are pleased to have finally secured the future of this famous old building.”
