Celebrate Cafe at the Bowery Poetry Club

Posted on: February 1st, 2010 at 6:11 am by

Last week, we reported that the Lower East Side History Project recently joined forces with Fourth Arts Block and the Cooper Square Committee, and will be moving to 61 East Fourth Street on February 2. In the wake of their re-location, the Bowery Poetry Club continues to host a cafe sponsored by the Lower Eastside Girls ClubCelebrate Cafe.

We want to thank the Bowery Poetry Club for hosting the EVVC at 308 Bowery in 2009 — and we wish the Lower East Side Girls Club luck — they just opened a fantastic new cafe (called “Celebrate Cafe”) on the premises which offers tasty baked goods made by Girls Club members. Great food, great vibe and a friendly, local staff (plus the new design features a table used by Dorothy Day… worth a visit alone IMO).

Celebrate Cafe is a social venture project of sorts that “trains and employs at-risk teens in culinary arts and the basics of running a café business.”  And according to the Poetry Club’s website, the official menu is still coming soon.
