24 Stylish Espresso Bars

From Revamped Coffee Shops to Contemporary Timber Coffeehouses

— May 22, 2015 — Lifestyle
Modern, stylish espresso bars are a convergence of the movement toward an emphasis on producing coffee as an artisanal food and the progression toward minimalist, understated retail design. Given that coffee is no longer considered a commodity and instead as an artisanal food, the coffeehouse experience has grown into one that reflects a lifestyle rather than a mere stop on your way into work.

From chic espresso bars tucked into the back of menswear boutiques to apartment-inspired cafes that champion a rustic feel, espresso bars are becoming a meeting place for the cutting edge in both interior design and specialty foods.

Contemporary espresso bars are able to brand themselves as creative and cultural hubs with the help of decor that reflects the values of the product.
