K-Bay Caffe & Roasting, the coffee roasting and drive-through espresso company, opened a new downtown café on Nov. 16 at 397 Pioneer Ave. next to the Refuge Chapel and the Grog Shop.

A grand opening party is at 7 p.m. Friday with live music by Uplift! and complimentary samples of coffee available. 

A reception starts at 6 p.m. 

Owner Michael McGuire said he plans for the downtown K-Bay Caffe to be an entertainment and social alternative that isn’t a bar or a restaurant, especially for teenagers and young adults.

Singer-songwriter Caressa Starshine also will be organizing the Green Room, a venue for musicians, at the café, with an open mic at 7 p.m. every Thursday starting Dec. 6; sign up will be at 6:30 p.m.

Starting Dec. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m., K-Bay Caffe also joins the First Friday art circuit, with Adam Green showing his art. Starting Dec. 16 is Soup at Seven on Sundays, a chance for people to share a communal meal every Sunday at 7 p.m.

Musicians interested in performing can call the café at 235-1551 or email kbaycaffe@gmail.com.

The East End Road drive-through coffee stand remains open. The downtown café also sells K-Bay Caffe in bulk and by the pound. K-Bay Caffe also has a Facebook page at facebook.com/kbaycoffee.
