Daring to go

It might not be serving the pumpkin spice lattes of its predecessor but at least new Bristol opening Dareshack promises an exclusive coffee blend from local roasters Triple Co.

But Dareshack will be much more than just another coffee bar. It’s also a community space with plans for collaborations with local artists and creatives to host art exhibitions, talks and workshops for local food and drink businesses.

The menu will include the signature cinnamon buns that proved to be such a hit when they were trialled during Dareshack’s lockdown delivery service.

Owned by Gui Petrini and Adda Cohn, who previously ran the acclaimed London coffee bar Sampa, the Dareshack team includes baker Daisy Mullins (ex-Bristol Loaf and Epiphany) and barista Mike Jordan (640East in London and Bath Coffee Company).

Dareshack opens at the Vintry Building on Wine Street, Bristol, on October 7.
