Woodbine Coffee Co. is taking over a 1930 retail building at 2519 Nolensville Pike. Owners Eddie Christy (in the picture at right, he's the guy on the right) and Todd Rossbach are doing the work themselves, removing the plaster by hand to expose brick walls and create what Christy calls a “clean, open and comfortable environment.”
Christy is a music business veteran and former marketer; Rossbach owns the popular dive bar Twin Kegs, not far away on Thompson Lane. But don't expect a big food menu, at least not at first. Christy says they'll stick to pastries at first.
Coffee beans will come from several vendors, but the main provider will be Humphreys Street Coffee, a nonprofit roaster that mentors and employs teens in South Nashville.
Christy said the coffeehouse will be “a straightforward place to meet, with free wireless and comfy chairs.” He hopes to have the place open by early March watch the Facebook page for updates.
