The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Sauce Magazine shortly thereafter, both announced the opening of our third location at The High Low. Blueprint Coffee will collaborate with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation to staff, manage, and design a coffee bar in the new literary arts center, The High Low. The location will call 3301 Washington Avenue in the Grand Arts Center home. To make this happen, Kranzberg Arts foundation is redeveloping the existing 4,000+ square foot building.
Ian Froeb of the Post-Dispatch quoted Blueprint member Mike Marquard accurately. He states in the article, “We’ve been pretty impressed with Kranzberg. Their mission is pretty awesome.”
Later, Froeb writes, “Marquard says the High Low location will feature a similar beverage selection as those shops: coffee and espresso drinks, of course, as well as tea and vinegar-based shrubs.”
Matt Sorrell of sauce writes, “Blueprint Coffee will handle coffee duties at the cafe, while Rob Connoley, chef-owner of the forthcoming Bulrush, will provide food service.”
The collaboration Rob Connoley excites us greatly. Conneley has proven his dedication to quality food and ingredients. Therefore, we feel his expertise will bring something to a Blueprint location that we currently can’t offer.
Sorrell goes on to write, “In addition to the cafe, the first floor of the building will also house a library featuring rotating collections of books, magazines newspapers and articles, a gallery space and performance and event space. The second floor will be home to the Center’s forthcoming writers-in-residence program along with offering rentable office spaces.”
It’s true, The High Low will incorporate many exciting literary elements into the space. Therefore, we’re excited to serve as the welcome center and hospitality center of this new space.
