The Arts District is set to get a little more caffeinated, with news today that bike-centric coffee shop The Wheelhouse will be rolling up the doors come Friday, January 15.

The beautiful new Factory Place location was designed by co-owners Chase and Tami Spenst, and features a mix of coffee bar efficiency and urban chic lounge space. The airy location also acts as a retailer of vintage-inspired bicycles, and comes complete with an on-site service department.

Food and drink-wise, the plan for now is to stick with a simple coffee and pastry-only menu — designed by Tyler Wells, naturally — and add a larger food operation soon enough. Eventually, the team even hopes to begin running evening hours that will feature beer and wine. Beans come by way of Olympia Coffee, teas from August Uncommon, and pastries from Superba Food + Bread.

After it opens on Friday, January 15, The Wheelhouse will look to keep coffee hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. There’s also parking apparently — for both cars and bicycles.
