A new independent coffee shop in the heart of Wrexham town centre has celebrated its grand opening.

Bank Street Coffee, which opened over the weekend, is the latest venture by brothers Phil and Andy Gallanders, who also launched the popular King Street Coffee in the Bus Station in April 2016.

As the name suggests, the new coffee shop has opened on Bank Street; joining the wealth of existing independent businesses in that area.

The premises, which had been vacant for several months, has been given a modern revamp – with large benches, new decor and some industrial lighting offering a different atmosphere for the town centre.

With King Street Coffee now being firmly established in Wrexham, owner Phil Gallanders told that they didn’t want to replicate the decor of existing site – instead the plan was to provide something different but with some subtle similarities, and has the added title of ‘event space’.

On the drinks menus is a variety of coffees, teas, iced drinks, cakes and even loose leaf tea. With the big windows facing onto Bank Street, it’s the perfect place to grab and drink and do some people watching on the busy street.

If you have not twigged yet where Bank Street Coffee is, it is on Bank Street in the town centre:
