This summer the brand-new feel good club coffee house will be the first mental health & wellbeing led hospitality venue in the city. Located in Northern Quarter, this multifunctional space will provide an area for events, pop-up galleries featuring local artists, and break out spaces for the local community to connect.
The Feel Good Club exists to remind people that we are all just humans, it aims to support and normalise the conversations around mental health. This community was built by Aimie & Kiera Lawlor-Skillen who are providing their community the tools to become the best version of themselves and helping to spread happiness!
The couple’s first venue ‘Feel Good Club’, is set to open this summer in the recently restored Hilton House, with plans currently in the design phase, this dog-friendly coffee house will occupy 2,800ft space. With a clean and airy feel, the plan is to incorporate calming and earthy colours to inspire guests to be comfortable within the surroundings and use the space as their own.
The team plan on hosting regular events such as yoga, cinema nights, wellbeing talks and a series of workshops. The staff have the practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues, and all with be mental health first aid trained.
Aimie voiced that they began to realise the huge demand for people to connect when they first started the Feel Good Club online, and that a community was shouting for a place they could call their own. Loneliness is an enormous problem in the UK, so a place which offers guest to be encouraged to talk to strangers is a great way to tackle this issue. It has become incredibly evident during the pandemic for how important it is to socialise, therefore the Feel Good Club will be the perfect place to provide the opportunity to bring like minded people together.
