After buying the building and beginning renovation, discoveries of Middlesbrough's eclectic and charming history were uncovered. Taking things back to the bare brickwork exposed evidence of more than 200+ years of classic Middlesbrough history. Not content with the white cloned buildings lining the streets in 2012 however, it was decided that Mink should be taken the extra mile to bring out the former glory that our forefathers used to know and love.
Sourcing local scrap, Mink has been lovingly restored using driftwood, bricks, reclaimed iron and steel, even long forgotten fairground rides have been given a polish for a second chance to be beautiful. All our tables and chairs were found cruelly abandoned, but with a few extra hours of love are now waiting to greet you by our hand built bar.
For your refreshment we serve a sundry of quirky and tasty ales, wines and spirits from around the world, there's bound to be something that tickles your fancy...
...and if there isn't, just ask! We'll gladly put together your favourite cocktail.
We serve fresh coffee, hand pulled from our antique Italian machine.
We source our coffee beans through a specialist Italian roasting company, who we have worked in conjunction with to bring you only the finest.
Once you've tasted our coffee you'll agree it stands miles apart from the others made by electric coffee machines.
