The 86 Coffee Bar brews up excitement at CCM

New coffee shop arrives at CCM, elevating campus culture with coffee and creativity

Excitement is brewing at the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) as The 86 Coffee makes its debut on the University of Cincinnati campus on March 5. This new coffee shop promises more than just a caffeine fix; it's set to become a vibrant hub for students, faculty and visitors, embodying the essence of "coffee, concerts, creativity and community."

The 86 Coffee Bar brings a fresh energy to CCM. Nestled within the college, near University Pavilion and Tangeman University Center, the cafe offers a welcoming space for studying, meetings or simply enjoying a cup of joe. Designed with modern flair and subtle nods to CCM's artistic heritage, The 86 Coffee Bar boasts comfortable seating and cozy corners. The name is a nod to the service industry term "86," when an item is unavailable or thrown out; at The 86, all are welcome and no one is discarded, according to its website.

Partnering with the local Pneuma Coffee Roasters, renowned for their commitment to quality, The 86 Coffee Bar offers an array of meticulously crafted brews, from rich espressos to velvety lattes. Moreover, the menu extends beyond traditional offerings, with specialty drinks inspired by the creativity of CCM's community.

At the heart of The 86 Coffee Bars mission lies its commitment to fostering a sense of community. With its slogan, "Coffee, Concerts, Creativity, Community," the cafe seeks to embody these principles in every interaction and experience. It aims to be a destination where ideas are exchanged, friendships are forged and memories are made.

The 86 Coffee Bar in CCM will be open daily starting March 5.

Hours: 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, 2-7 p.m. Sunday
