The Beantown Cafe was conceived by a native of Worcester, Massachusetts where she roamed the Cafes and night scene of Cambridge listening to recitations of the likes of Kerouac, Ginsberg, Kesey, and Burroughs. Tiny out of the way venues would host such musical avantguardists such as Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seger, The Kingston Trio and others which galvanized the “Beat Generation”.
The Owner wanted to create a cozy, convenient coffee bar where folks by day could plug in their computers, drink exceptional teas and coffees, read, socialize or otherwise hang out in an inspirational place. While nighttime was reserved for an intimate place where local poets and writers, musicians and performers could be “Unplugged” and expressive on a small and informal stage.
Warm materials, organic shapes, soft surfaces and inviting colors are the palette for the Beantown experience.
