Coffeehouse/Private Club: Does This Exist?

homeboy4 | May 15, 2010 03:29 PM

Does this exist? Kind of a coffeehouse (yes, think Starbucks), but larger, with mostly overstuffed chairs and maybe a sofa or two. Carpet on the floor, not tile. Either no windows or small ones (leaded glass?) A fireplace! Yes, a fireplace. Low light and not too noisy. I'm kinda sorta of thinking of those clubs for upper class Englishmen you see in the movies. A place to go for coffee or dessert to hang out. Unurban does the hangout and talk part, but is way too counterculture and too crowded, i.e., chairs too close together. (This is not a critique of Unurban. It's cool. It's just not what I'm seeking in this message.) BTW, although I mentioned private club and upper class and all that, those aren't essential features. Just trying to convey the sense of the sort of place I have in mind.
