Intelligentsia Coffee
Wheeler Kearns Architects
Wicker Park
1,000 sf

The new Intelligentsia Coffee is located at the gates of Wicker Park at 1611 W Division, a mixed-use project also constructed by Power. The full-height windows along the exterior let in ample light on the 10-seat table. Low banquettes and optional red squares optimize seating in the unique café. 

The distinctive Nordic features of the coffee bar include retro-plated flooring, poly-gal lighting, steel benches and specialized brewing and distribution equipment. A Douglas Fir bar façade and fir walls highlight the warm, inviting feel. Six taps behind the bar expand their menu with craft brew, custom tea, and hard cider options.
