Tea party in full swing

A former landmark bar near Queen Elizabeth Law Courts in Birmingham has been let to a coffee shop chain.

The building at 190 Corporation Street and the corner of Newton Street was a Yates’s Wine Lodge until 2008.

It will become the first Birmingham branch of the Boston Tea Party Group, which has taken on a ten year lease on a commencing rental of £37,500 per annum, in a deal arranged by Cushman & Wakefield. Boston Tea Party Group is a family-owned business founded in Bristol in the 1990s.

Cushman & Wakefield acted for the landlord, London-based LaSalle 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.”
