New Brighton’s cool new hangout, Social 114, is going down a storm in New Brighton since opening in September 2022. The coffee shop and bar, located on Victoria Road in the heart of the street art district, offers quality coffee, loose leaf teas, brunch, cakes, woodfired pizzas and specialist wines and beers.
The new independent is open Mon and Tues 8am-4pm then Thurs-Sun 8am-late. In the daytime you can expect a chilled out playlist, with great coffee, tea, pastries, cakes and brunch dishes such as smoked salmon and scrambled egg on sourdough, whereas things get a little more upbeat into the evenings.
During the evenings the new hangout has introduced woodfired pizzas and it offers specialist wines selected by a top sommelier, as well as quality beers such as Vedett and Krombacher. It will soon also be hosting vinyl DJ set nights — perfect for a chilled evening in the Victoria Quarter.
The woodfired pizzas have been the talk of the town of late — with some incredible creations flying out of the oven! If you like pizza you’ll LOVE some of the mouth-watering menu at Social 114, with options such as pepperoni with jalapenos and honey, sweet potato and stilton and parmesan, sage and truffle oil.
Social 114 is a very welcome addition to Victoria Road — bringing a much needed new food and drink offering. With a refined and simplistic menu of quality coffee, tea, wine, beer and food to match its minimalist and chilled out style, it’s the perfect place to hang out amongst the street art and is very reasonably priced.
Owner Robert Jones said: “Myself and my partner Vic have been heavily involved in the Victoria Quarter project — I have been the Co-Ordinator of the street art whereas she has been involved in the hospitality aspect. We’re therefore thrilled to now have our own venue on the street and people are loving it so far.”
He continued: “There’s often lots of little tweaks you need to do as a new hospitality business owner but we seem to have hit the ground running. We’ve selected our food and drink very carefully and kept it nice and simple — we’ve also kept our prices very reasonable as we know many people are stretched at the moment.”
Locals have been full of praise for the new coffee shop and bar, with one saying ‘lovely new cafe bar, a bright and welcoming space with a cool decor’ and another stating ‘had a lovely breakfast this morning, something a bit different and healthier’. With the latest addition of pizzas and vinyl DJ sets, it’s likely to grow in popularity even more.
Social 114 is located at 114 Victoria Road, New Brighton, in the popular Victoria Quarter street art district. It’s open Mon and Tues 8am-4pm then Thurs-Sun 8am-late — offering quality coffee, loose leaf teas, brunch, cakes, woodfired pizzas and specialist wines and beers in a chilled out environment.
