For seven years we’ve been running a pretty awesome bar in the city called Union Electric Bar & Rooftop Gin Garden. It’s an award-winning little laneway cocktail bar & rooftop serving up the finest cocktails, craft beers, gin, rum, loud shirts & old school hip hop.
It came time to grow & in 2019 we moved into & started developing a new site on Bell Street. Which meant multiple daily coffee runs for staff & tradies.
After struggling to find good coffee with friendly service in the area we put our of years of hospitality experience into action & opened our own little pop up.
Hence Bell Street Coffee Window was born.
Then in 2020 Melbourne went into lockdown but our little coffee window stayed open.
With nightlife dark, it kept our Union Electric bar staff connected & employed & became an oasis for Fitzroy locals to escape the confines of their homes for a brief moment of human interaction & caffeinated goodness.
We aren’t a specialty Melbourne coffee shop, just good tasty coffee, served by good people for a reasonable price.
With our focus on friendly & fun service we soon built up a loyal customer base & became an integral part of the local Fitzroy community.
It became clear that this little pop-up was here to stay.
Open every day. We support our community, local suppliers, our friends in hospitality & frontline workers. And if you haven’t noticed… we LOVE dogs!
In the warmer months ‘Spritzroy’ comes to life & our little corner of Brunswick & Bell Street is the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a delicious spritz cocktail or a glass of wine.
