While we’re all concerned for each other’s wellbeing, as well as a little bewildered by the peculiar state of affairs, we face an unprecedented challenge for our national economy;, particularly for small businesses.
Nevertheless, despite the loss of many businesses nationwide, and many of us unable to work, there are many traders, pubs, restaurants and takeaways here in the Jewellery Quarter, who have adapted to these testing circumstances and are persisting with delivering their services to the public – how ever they can!
Below, you can find a list of small businesses who have made the inspired decision to keep going!
Take a look at what services are available and how you can support Jewellery Quarter businesses while they need you most:
JQ bakeries and cafe’s are unfortunately not allowed to have you through their doors, but some are still offering ‘something sweet’!
Bake Even Cakery – Online delivery service is continuing.
The Brutally Honest Bakery – Brownies, hotcakes and rocky road, along with their delicious coffee still available!.
Coffee Tales – Cakes available for order and delivery, find more details on their Facebook page.
SodaBread Cafe – Open as usual for takeaways of beverages, sandwiches and treats. Also, Elisabeth has transformed the shop into a mini grocery store with additional provisions of bread, milk, eggs and even loo roll & hand sanitiser!
Bars and Restaurants
Firstly, we'd like to say thank you all once again for watching, sharing and our videos. We love seeing the pictures of the drinks you’ve made. Keep posting your photos below and we'll throw out a few bar tabs for the best ones for when we reopen! This week we’re celebrating the Mexican festival of Cinco de Mayo, which means one thing, Tequila! We’ve decided to show you how to make our favourite Tequila cocktail… Tommy’s Margarita, taught by our very own Drinks Development Manager, Tim, with Jose Cuervo Tradicional.What is a Tommy’s Margarita?This simple blend of tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup was invented by Julio Bermejo at Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco in the 1990s. Agave syrup wasn’t as common back then as it is now, but the cocktail’s popularity skyrocketed, and continues today. Demand is so constant at Tommy’s that Bermejo is known for shaking his signature drinks four at a time in the large jug of a blender! Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant is known for its immense selection of pure agave tequilas, so if you’re a die-hard tequila fan, you might want to add a trip to this iconic bar to your Margarita bucket list.
