Quality coffee lovers, rejoice!
Coffee Bar is opening a new location in Squaw Valley, over on the east side of the Village, by Oakley and the Wanderlust Yoga studio.
The much-anticipated Coffeebar Squaw Valley location will host its grand opening celebration President’s Day weekend, February 18-20. The celebration includes the highest quality coffee and gourmet café food selections that Coffeebar is known for, and a full-fledged party environment at Squaw Valley’s Plaza Bar from 9 p.m. until close on Saturday, February 18. Featuring music from: DJs Leyl Master Black, DjBlue42 and headliner Alex Cruz. This event is open to the public.
“We have been talking to Andy Wirth and his team at Squaw over the last four years to find the perfect location to benefit both visitors and our local ski community alike,” said Greg Buchheister, founder and owner of Coffeebar. “We are super excited to share this one of a kind Coffeebar with Squaw and its entire community. We pulled out all the stops on working with local artists Roundwood Furniture, Mountain Forge as well as a special surprise courtesy of Tamara McKinney & the Jimmy Heuga Foundation.”
Featuring espresso, coffee, fresh baked pastries, house made panini sandwiches, and beer and wine, Coffeebar Squaw Valley will be open daily from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. with a farm-to-table menu and a professional coffee program and classic European après ski (happy hour). Coffeebar Squaw Valley will be the fourth local Coffeebar establishment, joining two locations in Truckee and one in Reno, and plans are in the works for a Menlo Park location in the San Francisco Bay Area. Coffeebar Squaw Valley is located on the eastern end of The Village at Squaw Valley.
Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, shared, “Greg Buchheister has developed what can only be considered one of the coolest and highest quality brands in the competitive world of West Coast coffee and cafés. I am stoked to welcome Coffeebar to The Village at Squaw Valley.”
Coffeebar Squaw Valley will be both comfortable and contemporary, inspired by the rustic modern cafés of Italy and designed in collaboration with local artists from Roundwood Furniture, Mountain Forge and Root of Design Electric. The interior will feature white marble, forged steel, wood from Lake Tahoe’s old boathouses, and skis and snowboards repurposed into modern functional art.
“We hope the guests of Squaw Valley will be thrilled to enjoy the quality coffee, food and the atmosphere offered by Coffeebar as it becomes the heart of the Squaw Valley ski community,” said Buchheister. “President’s Day weekend and the kick-off party will mark a memorable beginning at Squaw Valley, and everybody is invited.”
