About the campaign
Help from the community will allow the B&O to remain a part of Seattle's cultural history, both past and present. The CSC loan will assist in re-opening the B&O as a cafe, bakery, full-service French restaurant and bar in the equally iconic Frontier Room space in Belltown at 1st and Blanchard.
Funding provided through CSC and our community will give us the opportunity to successfully re-open a well-loved, Seattle establishment.
The B&O represents Seattle's history and unique coffee culture. Providing Seattle with espresso since 1976, the B&O would become a community meeting place for the artistic, creative and entrepreneurial spirits who would later put Seattle on the map. By re-opening the B&O and preserving its identity as a Seattle cultural landmark, we can give the community an opportunity to preserve these important social establishments and draw inspiration from them for years to come. It shows we can come together to value people and culture over commercial pursuits.
The B&O represents so many aspects of Seattle's original culture... all in a coffee cup! By re-opening the B&O, we celebrate the history of that culture and provide a positive foundation for the expression of next generations.
