Dark Horse Espresso

Dark Horse ditches Queen St. for 401 Richmond

Those who work and play in 401 Richmond will soon get one more place to fuel up on caffeine. That's because local coffee chain Dark Horse Espresso Bar is opening up inside the former industrial building some time in December.

Dark Horse shuttered its West Queen West outpost earlier this month, joining a number of other businesses that have either closed down or moved out of the neighbourhood. Yesterday, it announced via Twitter it would be moving that location to 401 Richmond.

The new Dark Horse won't be replacing the existing Roastery Coffee House. Rather, it'll open on the basement floor opposite the Swipe store.

Do you think this area needs another coffee shop? Let us know in the comments.
