Amity Coffee Will Soon Serve Up Beer

Amity Coffee is the First Business in the Lakeside Neighborhood to Serve Alcohol

It was earlier this summer when the Duluth City Council voted to repeal a ban on selling alcohol in the Lakeside neighborhood.

That vote was the final step in a long process to remove a restriction that had been in place ever since the late 1800’s.

Now, Amity Coffee is the first business to be granted a liquor license in Lakeside is almost ready to start serving.

Dane Gagnon, a Barista at Amity Coffee, said “I feel like we live in an age where things are changing and things that might not have been acceptable are now a days.”

Amity Coffee plans to stay open for extended hours once alcohol sales start.

Having live late night music is also a goal for the future.

The owners are hoping having alcohol available will draw in a whole new type of crowd and help increase business.
