turnerbates designs fourth space for up-and-coming independent coffee brand, BEAR, for its progression from the high street to intu’s shopping and leisure destination in Derby. 


Works are well underway for the opening of BEAR Coffee Company’s fifth site to date, and second site in Derby.

turnerbates have been providing a full design service, including management and gaining consents, for BEAR since meeting the team at the Restaurant and Bar Design show in 2016 and then going on to design their second site in Derby.

Alongside the client, turnerbates have progressed each site whilst maintaining the essence of the brand.

This space has more of a relaxed ‘lounge’ feel with more of an emphasis on the coffee and wine/cocktails offer, whilst still providing a cosy restaurant space. It will also have an area for retail, where BEAR will be selling reusable cups and coffee brewing products.

Have a sneak peak of the new concept, set to open in September, below…

Our ambition has always been to create something different for the UK by offering sociable spaces with a coffee-focused, all day and evening offer, so we think we can really complement intu Derby’s great mix of brands and provide something very special for its high footfall.
