Coffee Block, Stockport

Coffee Block, Stockport

Coffee Block is one of Stockport’s favourite independent coffee shops. Based on Merseyway, this indie cafe has proven popular to visitors of all ages. Since opening the Coffee Block team have grown strength to strength and continue to be incredibly busy. After posting about this place on social media our comment section was lit up with positive comments. It is great to see local people supporting new local businesses!

What to expect?

Coffee Block has a large range of hand crafted coffees, smoothies/soft drinks and a curated selection of changing sweet options – personally love the “raspberry meringue chocolate tarts” – let’s be honest where else can you get those in Stockport! 

Coffee block also has a wide selection of toasted sandwiches (Vegan/gluten free options available) to eat in or takeaway depending on what you are after and a whole host of other nibbles. We would always suggest popping in as the space is light, green and is the perfect place to do some excellent people watching. Especially when sat outside on sunny days!

Opening Times

Where is it?

The Spinn Off, Stockport

The Spinn Off, Stockport

Located on Stockport Underbanks The Spinn Off is a neighbourhood bar which focuses on independent craft beers, quality organic wines and locally sourced handmade pies. The Team behind The Spinn Off are known in the Stockport area as they already own a bar & kitchen in Gatley. Scott and Adam told us “it is great to be part of all the regeneration happening in this area – that is why we wanted to invest and be part of the positive change”. 

The bar itself is small and intimate but due to the extension of outside seating placed amongst the historic Underbanks The Spinn off has a very Northern Quarter vibe. The use of open brick, market style seating and selection of locally sourced independent beers/wines ties together that pop up style atmosphere. The wine selection is curated by Stockport Market’s wine maestro Wineboy and the pies are brought in from Stockport’s Patel’s Pies. It is clear there is a huge focus on working with local producers and it is great to see local businesses partnering up and supporting each other. 

Next time you are on the Underbanks why not pop in for a beer and a pie and support another exciting local business.

Bask Stockport

Bask Stockport

Located at Stockport Exchange (next to the train station) Bask has taken over the former Cafelito unit. Bask is a self described “speakeasy” which has live music at its heart. One of the owners Ben Taylor tells us “we chose Stockport because of the love for my hometown. That was the biggest pull for me. The future is looking so sharp for the area and we hope to be bringing something new and exciting to town”.

Bask will be multi faceted with different vibes throughout the day. Due to the proximity to the station they will be offering coffees, smoothies and more in the mornings. As the day goes on the atmosphere will change to a bar with a whole host of different activities and events planned. Mondays will be an acoustic night called Acoustica sponsored by Didsbury Gin and will host 3 artists every week. There will be comedy nights, spoken word sessions, Sunday music specials and DJ sets Thursday to Saturday.

We are really excited to see this new addition to the evening economy especially in a new area of town. The space itself is open airy and has been fitted out to make use of the large space! Whether you are looking for a casual drink, a cheeky cocktail after work, a night out, or a new gig venue – Bask has it all on offer.  

Opening June 4th – Find out more about Bask by clicking here.
