Stand-Up Coffee Bars…A place for conversation

Posted on August 25, 2010

This is a Belltown public service announcement.

There is a lovely retail space on 1st avenue neighboring Black Bottle that has been up for lease. It looks lonely, like a cute puppy at the pound.

It’d be perfect for a stand up coffee bar concept like this;

A latte at Bluebird. “A coffee shop should be a place to meet your friends and hold conversations and cultivate ideas instead of — I’m going to get in trouble for saying this, so I have to be careful — instead of sticking your head in a laptop,” said Mark Connell, who owns Bluebird with his wife, Jessica.

You have 2 days: Vote Belltown’s Bedlam Coffee “Best Of”

Posted on August 25, 2010

Bedlam Coffee is one of our favorite haunts in Belltown. We love the guys who run the shop, and we love what they do for the community. Remember that whole Founder’s Day thing? Bedlam’s owners were one of the driving forces of making that happen. Do you like how the artwalk has been expanding every month? Again, those crazy Bedlam guys. 

So, if you’re down for supporting a local business who seriously cares about the neighborhood they do business in, take a minute and vote them best of. One small click for man… one giant… ok nevermind.
