College Park will get its own Vigilante Coffee as early as this fall.
The popular Hyattsville hangout will open its second outpost at 8200 Baltimore Ave., previously the site of #1 Liquors, with indoor seating for 25 to 30 people.
Owner Chris Vigilante told the Hyattsville Wire that the one-floor coffee shop will have dueling La Marzocco espresso machines, a brew bar for non-espresso coffee, acai bowls and plant life throughout.
The shop will have a “killer sound system” to fit the 13-foot ceilings. And by spring 2018, the new location will also have what Vigilante promises will be an “epic patio,” but for now the goal is just to get the shop open.
“It’ll have its own vibe and design,” he said. “We love repurposing old buildings and bringing things back to life. For example, we’re restoring and adding our own style and wording to the old ‘Liquor, beer, wine’ neon sign that hangs off the side of the building.”
Already, the building has a new mural by artist Graham Boyle, adding to the growing list of public art along Route 1.
