Earlier this week news leaked that Handsome Coffee Roasters, a new LA outfit, is going to open in the forthcoming Financial District restaurant and cocktail den Demi Monde, and today reps offer details on the rest of the operation.
The front, street-level section of Demi Monde will indeed function as a coffee shop during the day, serving nearby locals and office workers. At night the bulk of the space, located via a winding staircase to a subterranean level, will open and will provide, press materials promise, "an underground nightlife experience like no other." The space will have a 200 person capacity with seating for 120 and will be divided into a series of connected rooms. There will be a sunken lounge filled with tables, a carpeted VIP area, a bar, a DJ booth, and "places out of the action to sit or mingle." On the menu: serious cocktails—co-owners include bar man Alex Day and Death & Co's David Kaplan after all—a wine list with a focus on sparkling wine, and share plates from Vandaag alum Phillip Kirschen-Clark. It opens to the public in mid-February.
