Global Coffee has opened in the Basement, a collection of small locally owned micro-businesses hidden beneath the former U.S. Post Office building in downtown Reno, located at 50 South Virginia Street.
It's the latest among nearly a dozen businesses that are open or planning to open soon. With the Virginia Street Bridge set to open in a few months, and a major furniture retailer signing a letter of intent for the first floor of the majestic historic building, this could be the perfect retail Mecca that downtown residents have been asking for, and a draw for tourists.
Already open in the Basement is the beautifully designed Rawbry raw juice bar and retail store, Sugar Love candy shop, Beautifully Bearded Man barber shop which is getting rave reviews on Yelp, and a cute florist shop that can do custom arrangements, wire service and deliveries. Also calling the Basement home soon will be Kalifornia Jean Bar, Tahoe Nevada Love, Apothecary, Pantry Products and the New Deal. I also heard a salad concept will be going in called Chomp.
There's a large communal sitting/dining area anchoring the juice bar and coffee house together.
Rounding out the wide variety of businesses will be a sunken lecture hall.
