The Brompton Bike Cafe in Brooklyn is a recently opened spot to grab a bite to eat and gather with other local cycling enthusiasts. Located within Kent Avenue's Rough Trade NYC, the Brompton Bike Cafe is a charismatic new spot that serves as the two brands' first collaboration stateside. Both the British bike manufacturer and UK music label began their storied histories in West London.

The unique retail outpost won't sell Brompton Bicycles, but will be able to alert consumers to the shops across the city that carry them. The Bike Cafe will be serving Toby's Estate coffee.

In addition to serving as a cultural hub for the city's bike scene, this cobranded retail experience will surely help reaffirm the reach of either brand in the US.
