Foam inches closer
Today I finally got a chance to take another look this morning at the inside of Foam, the upcoming coffeehouse/nightlife destination coming to 3359 Jefferson. Things are starting to come together and the place should hopefully be open sometime in January. It seems like everything is still set to open under the same business model I previously discussed. At this point, all the systems and drywall are in place and the floors are partially complete. There is undoubtly quite a bit of work to go, but you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The interesting thing about the place is that creative decorations such as an old-styled logo painted on an interior brick wall, painted stools from schools for chairs, 8″ wide pine flooring, and artistically painted and weathered pine boards on the stage and on walls.
The pictures from my visit can be viewed through the gallery below. If you want to see the progress for yourself, Foam will actually be open to the public for the St. Louis Rehabbers Club Year-End Party next week. It will take place on December 13th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. For more information or tickets, check out the event site.
