Nespresso selects Liverpool One for UK debut concept boutique
Grosvenor Europe has announced that Nespresso has launched a new concept store for the UK on Liverpool Ones Peter’s Lane.
Located adjacent to Michael Kors, The White Company and Beauty Bazaar Harvey Nichols, the 1,600 sq ft Nespresso is a unique immersive boutique and only their third globally, following trials in Cannes and New York. The main focus of the concept is to celebrate coffee moments through experiential tastings and workshops with the brand’s team of experts.

In addition, customers who are Nespresso Members can return their used capsules to be recycled.

It is a stylish, modern location at the heart of the city and the premium brands alongside us add to a wonderful shopping experience.”
