From Miami to Chicago, Los Angeles, and now New York, Café Bustelo’s pop-up cafés have been on a caffeine-fueled adventure to the country’s major metropolises, and have now landed at 168 Bowery for nine days. Head down to NoHo between October 17 and 26 for free coffee, live music, interactive photo booths, and all of the primary colors you can stand from the iconic brand.
Throughout the day, people will be able to try various brews in Café Bustelo’s repertoire while being treated to live music from the likes of Migguel Anggelo, the Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, and Eli Jas while relaxing in the lounge.
Opened Sunday through Thrusday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., it is the perfect place to stop for your free cup of morning joe or midday espresso pick-me-up.
Each visitor is given a punch card, and you can bring a friend and receive a fun giveaway: An “I (Heart) Café Bustelo” t-shirt, sunglasses, and a tote bag. Participants can tag them on Twitter (#BusteloNY or @CafeBustelo) while there.
It’s not just about the coffee; Café Bustelo has partnered with the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE), as well, whose reps will host networking events, career coaching, and résumé critiques during the pop-up shop.
