Derby City Espresso adds good beer to the caffeinated mix.

Derby City Espresso is burrowed squarely within ground zero of downtown Louisville’s burgeoning Market Street corridor, where the pace of redevelopment has been such that there can’t possibly be a backyard shed or doghouse still standing that hasn’t been converted into one or more condominiums.

By contrast, Matthew’s copper-clad coffee bar is set in the rear of his narrow storefront, opening onto a small and placid outdoor seating area, and reached by traversing two colorful front rooms filled with art. DCE is as much of a coffee aficionado’s hangout as Rich O’s is for beer lovers, but now, as the owner informs us, there’ll be excellent beer to go along with the multitude of coffees and teas. I look forward to it, although there'll have to be a slight change of schedule, given that my previous visits to DCE have come early in the morning

Here’s his report, as copied from the Louisville Restaurants Forum:

Now for the first time you'll be able to have a double shot with a glass of your favorite malted beverage!

We're getting the party started right on Friday night (November 2) for the First Friday Trolley Hop with “Decked Out: The Exhibition,” featuring the art of skateboard decks with 86 artists participating and more than 100 skateboard decks on display. It begins at 6:00 p.m.

The band and former dictator PRESIDENTE will take the stage at 10 p.m.!
