Grit n Glory Opening at 186 Orchard on Sunday

Posted on: November 3rd, 2011 at 6:18 am by

Grit n Glory is a rockstar cafe concept percolating at 186 Orchard StreetAs first reported here last month, the permanent pop-up space is transforming and will soon offer coffee and light snacks alongside a thick helping of rock n roll boutique wares.  Walls are painted a light brown hue, with an eclectic collection of empty vinyl album covers nailed to the rear exposure.

We stopped last week to talk shop with the two proprietors, Emily Conley and Veronica Cano.  Upon opening this Sunday, Grit n Glory will serve up Stumptown beans in a comfortable “alternative” atmosphere; although there is a segregated velvet-rope VIP area.  The open space and high ceilings provide ample room for scattered tables and musical whatnot. In fact, much of the store decorations are actually for sale. Meanwhile, boardgames are aplenty behind the bar, with classic titles like Connect 4, Battleship, and Metallica Monopoly (\m/).
