A good friend of mine recently opened A coffee shop in the Queen Village/Bella Vista area of Philadelphia, your average coffee club it is not. The place has A great feel with all the attention paid to detail in it's decor, I personally love the old Tastykake factory cafeteria style lunch table seating. Mat is also doing way cool stuff with the shop, he has had A few evening discussions on the topic of vintage baseball jerseys and history related to... There is A very intellectual feel associated to Shot Tower which is the yang that fits the ying when sharing A cup of coffee with A fellow neighbor or stranger. Even the name itself was well thought out and a homage to An icon in that particular neighborhood, that most people aren't aware of. The shot Tower was an old ammunition manufacturing factory. Shot Towers' latest project involves A native Philadelphia artist Stephen Powers, that Mat has A good working friendship with, and A limited print that Steve did for the shop. Stop in and pick one up.
