The prospect of a combination coffeehouse by Filter and bike shop by the Bike Rack coming to the South East corner of Monroe Street Markets’s Artswalk has been in the works for quite some time. We were pleased to hear from Erin from the Bike Rack that the location will open April 18th. Here is the press release:
Two of D.C.’s favorite pastimes, coffee and bicycles, are coming together in the historic Brookland neighborhood under one roof on April 18. The Bike Rack and Filter Coffeehouse are excited to be part of the growing community at the Monroe Street Market.
The April 18 Grand Opening will be held in conjunction with the first Brookland Farmer’s Market of 2015.
The two businesses will share space within the Brookland Works building at 716 Monroe St. NE. The Bike Rack will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Filter Coffeehouse will be open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday andSunday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“Bikes and coffee just go together, ask any cyclist,” said Chuck Harney of The Bike Rack. “ We feel that a bike shop should be a community gathering spot for the local community and for cyclists. A coffee bar helps to create that feel year round.”
