Well, Park Slope caffeinated community, it looks like the genie is finally going to appear. This Thursday, that is.
After years of being in a holding pattern, Blue Bottle Coffee has officially announced its opening date for November 10 at 203 7th Avenue, at the corner of 3rd Street. Doors will open at 7am.
At the end of August, a spokesperson told us the company is “aiming” for an opening in the next few months. Looks like they could very well be on target.
“With as many writers as there are families, and a tree-to-human ratio enviable for any city, we couldn’t be more excited to open our third Brooklyn cafe there,” Blue Bottle writes on its website page dedicated to the Park Slope opening.
The California-based coffee roaster is opening in the space left vacant when Ocean Fish Market moved to 5th Avenue back in 2014. This cafe is will be the third one in Brooklyn. Their other Brooklyn locations are at 85 Dean Street (at Smith Street) in Boerum Hill and 160 Berry Street (between North 4th and North 5th Streets in Williamsburg.
In October 2015, a Blue Bottle spokesperson said they were “currently looking at late winter [early 2016] for the opening of Park Slope.”
At the time, Aaron Paylo, Director of Retail Development, told Park Slope Stoop, “Blue Bottle Coffee is excited to open our doors in Park Slope. There are still many steps that need to take place in order to make it a reality, but we’re very excited about joining the community.”
Looks like those steps are about complete. The cafe is slated to be open 7am-7pm seven days a week, but we are still waiting for confirmation about those hours from a Blue Bottle spokesperson.
