Veeno Italian Wine Cafe confirmed for former Beales department store


Harrogate’s wine connoisseurs are set for a treat as a new Italian wine cafe is planing on opening its doors in June.

Veeno, the Italian Wine Cafe will open its seventh store in Harrogate on Thursday, June 2.

The cafe will be another addition to the new £10m restaurant and cinema complex at the former Beales department store.

The Veeno concept was launched by two Italian friends, Nino and Andrea, after meeting in Manchester in 2013. The pair both realised they shared a unique passion for Italian Aperitivo; the ritual of drinking, nibbling and relaxing after work.

By the end of that very same year, Veeno opened its first store in Manchester where customers could enjoy wines from the family vineyard back in Sicily.

Customers are also treated to the most authentic Spuntini; platters of meals and cheeses imported strictly from Italian producers.

Nino Caruso, co-founder of Veeno, said “We’re very excited to be bringing our third cafe to Yorkshire. We regularly see customers visiting from Harrogate in Leeds and York, and when a unit came to our attention at the Everyman Cinema we jumped at the chance to take it!”
