Boogie Down Grind
Combining creamy coffee and soothing teas with a calendar of events for the community, Boogie Down Grind is a space that nourishes your soul along with your body. A cornerstone of Hunts Point, the cafe is grounded in a love for the Bronx and its people. Order cafe favorites with a hip hop twist (Grand Master Frappe, anyone?), or stop by for happy hour and a local-to-the-Bronx beer. During the day, the energy here nourishes creativity, so find a corner and start writing your story. In the evenings, Boogie Down turns things up a notch with book readings, poetry recitals, art exhibitions, comedy shows, and live music. Sip a sangria and soak in the beats, snap a picture for the ‘gram against the gorgeous paintings on the walls, and look out for Sway, who’s been known to stop by. Owner Majora Carter was inspired to create a space where the next James Baldwin would stop by. With the inspiring urban vibes at Boogie Down, that might just turn out to be you.
