CAFE SOCIETY RETURNS TO UK


THE café is fast taking over from the pub as the place of choice for young people to meet, it is claimed. According to a study by the British Beer and Pub Association, alcohol consumption levels among young people is on the decrease, falling by 12% between 2004 and 2011. “One reason for this drop is that young people are choosing to go to cafés to socialise as opposed to going to going out drinking,” suggests Jim Winship, Director of the Café Society. “Indeed, cafes are fast becoming the social hubs in cities across the UK, regaining the position they once held.”
