Detroit Frappuccino

leave a comment »

Andrew Zago’s Mercury Coffee Bar is a stimulating addition to the continuously declining Detroit.  The Architect’s Newspaper blog about its creation addresses how Zago chose to  “avoid reflecting Detriot’s troubled state” and I can’t blame him.  The bar is lively and colorful and described as a “third wave” coffee shop (not a diner or a living room type like Starbucks).  I only wonder who is patronizing this bar — certainly not the people that live around the desolate area that it occupies. I only wish there was something this imaginative where I live.
