Congratulations to our friend Daisuke who just opened Paddler’s Coffee in Tokyo, just outside of Yoyogi park in the Life Son bakery space. The cafe looks incredible and serves our single origin coffees on Chemex, cone pour overs, and french press. We feel very lucky to have such rad Northwest representation in the far east.
We are stoked to team up with the storied Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip, known for legendary performances by rock icons like Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, Warren Zevon and David Bowie. Lou Adler, Elliot Roberts and David Geffen opened the intimate 7,500 square-foot venue in the fall of 1973. The Roxy is also home to the infamous upstairs bar, On The Rox, which has refreshed and restored fellas like Carlin, Lennon, Belushi and DeNiro. We’re in good company.
