Happy New Year's Eve! I'll be having a low key night with the family, but I plan to make it until 11pm to at least see the ball drop in New York.
We've had an enjoyable coffee-filled holiday. Michael has even been making me coffee over the Holidays and since he's been able to watch the kids more, I get to have it warm (Thanks, love).
This month I visited Star Lounge with Jaqueline, make-up artist and owner of Jacqueline Gamache Beauty. She has great taste in coffee and suggested meeting here. Dark Matter's Star Lounge Coffee Bar is located in West Town on Chicago Avenue. Their mocha was on point. It tasted so fresh and not too sweet. Perfect.
They have plenty of space on the main floor, but they also have a quieter section upstairs and a colorful outside patio for the nice weathered months. There was also plenty of street parking.
We had run out of coffee at home, so I bought a bag that was roasted just 2 days before. It seriously is some of the best coffee we've had at home. The fact that they roast everything in-house is what makes this coffee so amazing. I've been loving the coffee shops with their own roasters, like last month's monthly mocha from Gaslight Coffee. They also have some fresh and amazing coffee.
Two thumbs up Star Lounge!
Until next year! Have an awesome NYE!
