Black Rock Coffee Bar Is Coming to the Hollywood District

black-rock-coffee-bar-coming-soon-hollywood-portland-oregon

Looks like the Hollywood District is getting another coffee shop—Oregon-based chain Black Rock Coffee Bar will open in a ground floor retail space in the new Laurel42 apartment building. They closed their Pearl District location in late February, but had already signed a lease for this space the December prior.

Here’s a better shot of the building they’ll be in:

My understanding is that they will start the buildout sometime in May with hopes to open in May (though it’s pretty raw inside right now); my guess it’s going to be more like early summer, just in time for their fancy iced and blended coffee drinks, fruity Rockstar coolers, among others.

Black Rock is just one of at least three possible retail tenants for this building; I’ll be curious to see what else opens up there.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Black Rock!
