Pot Kettle Black to open new coffee shop in Angel Gardens this autumn


Pot Kettle Black has become one of Manchester’s most-loved independent coffee shops since opening its first site back in 2014.

After opening a second Spinningfields site in 2018, its owners – rugby league stars Mark Flanagan and Jon Wilkin – have had their sights set on opening a site in the north of the city.

Now PKB is expanding again, opening a third site at the brand new and highly anticipated Moda Angel Gardens development this autumn. 

Owners say the new branch will serve its renowned artisan coffee and all-day brunch menu with the addition of laidback dinner dishes alongside a carefully crafted cocktail and drinks menu.

Moda Angel Gardens recently revealed its plans for city renters with a focus on community living.

An array of communal spaces open to residents and the city include a rooftop BBQ terrace, sports pitch, library, residents lounge, private dining room, gym and cinema room as well as an on site flexible workspace and bookable meeting rooms.

In addition, an extensive events programme – from rooftop yoga to BBQs – will create the opportunity to mix and mingle, they say, bringing people from across the city together.

In keeping with the community feel of Moda Angel Gardens, the new Pot Kettle Black venue will host weekly events and get togethers from book clubs to brunches.

“We have long held aspirations to open another site in the city,” says co-owner Mark.

“With Noma bordering home of the independents, the Northern Quarter, and food and drink hot spot of the moment, Ancoats, Moda Angel Gardens has become the most sought-after new address in the city.

“With their best in class facilities, community focus and passion for health and wellbeing we knew Moda Angel Gardens was the perfect spot for Pot Kettle Black.”

Pot Kettle Black Moda Gardens will open in Autumn 2019.
