It appears Westside will soon be home to a clothing boutique that comes with the added bonus of an attached coffeeshop. What Now Atlanta previously reported Club Monaco, which already operates a store in Buckhead, is planning a second Atlanta outpost at Westside Provisions District. Now, the retail brand is advertising something called "West Side Provisions Cafe" to go along with the shop.
The name of the forthcoming cafe was revealed in an advertisement in Food & Wine magazine. Club Monaco has been working on a few beverage-centric ventures at its stores, and Atlanta is joining New York, Montreal, Washington, D.C., and Charleston as cities that can claim the concept.
Hugh Acheson recently announced he's behind the Charleston cafe, called Root + Spiller, which should open in August. It will be similar to Acheson's Spiller Park Coffee kiosk in Ponce City Market, offering "coffee and light bread-themed dishes." That's in line with Toby's Estate Coffee at Club Monaco in New York and the company's Cafe Myriad in Montreal. In D.C., Curated Bar allows shoppers to get boozed up on cocktails while perusing Club Monaco's racks.
Right now, there's no word on who might be operating West Side Provisions Cafe, or when it might open. Eater Atlanta has reached out to Club Monaco for more information.
The boutique-cafe combination is similar to Chrome Yellow Trading Co., an Old Fourth Ward clothing store that includes a shop serving Stumptown Coffee. Tomorrow's News Today reports the Westside Club Monaco will focus on women's fashion.
