SideBar has added to its downtown offerings with today’s opening of a new coffee bar.
The grand opening celebration will continue through Sunday, with different specials and giveaways offered each day. In addition to the cozy shop interior, SideBar also offers a walk-up window to the coffee bar from the King Street sidewalk. The coffee bar is open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The new coffee shop joins its adjoining sister bar/restaurant SideBar, which has offerings from breakfast through late nights, and 14 Loudoun around the corner. They are all owned by husband and wife team Nils and Olivia Schnibbe.
“Exactly one year ago we signed a lease on this space and we can’t believe the day is finally here,” Olivia Schnibbe said Monday.
She heaped credit on the coffee bar’s manager David Hanlin and head barista Thomas Pickles for pulling off the successful opening.
