Michael Schulson’s Double Knot | Double the concepts in one space.

Michael Schulson’s Double Knot is set to open Tuesday, February 2nd next to his Sampan on 13th Street. The two-floored space is a gorgeous coffee focused cafe and bar upstairs, with a sexy izakaya and sushi bar downstairs. The cafe will open at 7 a.m. daily serving coffee under the guidance of Elixr’s Evan Inatome. Schulson has loved Elixr’s coffee since its original location on Sansom Street. So when it was time to get coffee help at the cafe, Schulson sought Inatome out to do the coffee at Double Knot. Inatome has installed a Modbar coffee system with bar top espresso, steam and pour over coffee stations. It is only one of ten such installations in the country. In addition to the Modbar system, one of the beer taps behind the bar will offer cold brewed draft coffee on nitro.

The cafe has seating for 35 along a comfortable banquette, leather armchairs and along a drink rail in the back. In addition to exposed brick, distressed mirrors and exposed tiles and reclaimed wood lath (the strips of wood found behind plaster walls). The front of the cafe includes floor to ceiling walls of knick-knacks and newspaper racks.

The Summer 2015 Affogato Road Show

Affogato-BirchIt was back in the sweltering summer days of 2013 when the first Affogato Days simultaneously caffeinated us and cooled us. The pop-up partnership between Little Baby’s Ice Cream and Elixr Coffee was a natural fit. Perfectly-pulled shots of single origin espresso poured over scoops of ice cream from Philly’s most playful jockeys of the deep freeze. Now, some of the Elixir kids have decamped to start W/N W/N Coffee Bar, but this year, just like Wet Hot American Summer, the gang is getting back together. The menu is the same, ice cream drowned in coffee once again, only this time the team is hitting the road.
