So, speaking of coffee shops…
All world-class museums and cultural districts aside (which i love), do you know one of my greatest frustrations with the city of Fort Worth? It’s lack of cool coffee shops!! Not exactly a pressing community issue, I know, but none the less there’s a need. Coming from Nashville where hipster cafes lurk at every corner, Fort Worth has been sorely lacking. Don’t get me wrong… Starbucks’ drive-thru has saved me on many a sleepy morning and long commute home but, other than that, I’m just not the biggest fan. For me, environment and aesthetic are just a way of life and something I greatly appreciate when it’s done well.
Enter Brewed, Fort Worth’s answer to my “cool coffee place” dilemma. And here’s the thing… it’s not just a coffee shop! It’s also a bar, restaurant, internet lounge, community meeting center, and more. They call themselves “the locals’ living room”, which is an idea I can totally get behind and already have!! (yes, some of the staff already knows me by name)
A few weeks ago, I sat down with co-owner and interior designer Jana Clark to learn more about their concept and space design. Listen along here!
Kinfolk Magazine was a significant inspiration to the Brewed team so you can find them scattered about the place. In fact, take it a step further and purchase your own copy to take home as well!
Take that, old Fort Worth!! Now we have our really cool place to hang and it’s called Brewed.
