The James Room opens on the Eastside Beltline

A lounge and coffee shop from the team behind Drafts + Dogs and 18.21 Bitters in Ponce City Market is open for business with limited hours in SPX Alley on the Eastside Beltline.

Missy and Kristin Koefod’s latest venture, The James Room, is open until 4 p.m. today, Eater Atlanta first reported. The spot will be open from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. until it gets its liquor license. 

In the meantime, The James Room will offer coffee, coffee drinks, tea, pastries, breakfast and lunch in its cafe space. 

Eventually, the business will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. (with an opening at 8 a.m. on Sundays) and will focus on cocktails, wine and small plates in the lounge area after 4 p.m. 

The drink menu will include draft cocktails, champagne and Spanish gin and tonics.

The James Room joins several other dining concepts in SPX Alley including the recently-announced Pour Taproom, as well as recently-opened Nina + Rafi,  Guac y Margys and Butter & Cream, Playa Bowls and the forthcoming Hawkers Asian Street Fare.

The AJC has reached out to the Koefods for more details.
