Caffeine for Kicks: ‘Football Cafe FC’ Now Serving on Forsyth Street

And now a Lower East Side coffee shop tailored specifically to footie fans.
That antique-ish “Travel Agency” marquee signage above 100 Forsyth Street is somewhat of a misnomer. Last summer – during the height of World Cup frenzy – the space housed a so-called football concierge. It was a temporary pop-up collaboration between Chinatown-based football collective Nowhere F.C. and apparel tech brand Avery Dimension, allowing fans to create custom jerseys.
The store went on hiatus after the month-long tournament, and sat vacant for the last year. Now the same dude – Nowhere F.C. member Simonez Wolf (aka Chef Sez) – is injecting the soccer theme into Football Cafe. Yes, the cubbyhole coffee shop dishes out java with sport. It debuted this week at 100 Forsyth; soft opening is currently underway.
This is a no-frills shop without seating. Just grab-and-go.
The spot is seemingly a perfect match for Football Cafe, as the always-active Grand Street pitch is just across the street.
