Today, we share some truly exciting news. We have worked closely with our dedicated team to develop multiple iterations of a concept that will now come to fruition. In Spring of 2016, we will open yet another coffee bar in this ever-inspiring city that we call home. This special coffee bar will be housed within one of San Francisco’s most iconic arts institutions—none other than the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). Nestled on the third floor, Sightglass at SFMOMA will stand adjacent to the John and Lisa Pritzker Center for Photography—slated to be the largest space devoted to photography at any art museum in the United States. In keeping with SFMOMA’s enduring commitment to fostering creativity and supporting new ways of seeing and experiencing our world, our coffee bar will offer visitors an immersive and distinct specialty coffee experience—one that truly embodies the Sightglass brand, feel, coffees and new environment we find ourselves in.
We feel honored to not only contribute to what has been and will continue to be an incredibly influential arts institution, but also to have the opportunity to share our journey with you. As we prepare to embark on this new endeavor, we would be remiss not to pause and reflect. We wouldn’t be at this exciting juncture in our story—underway on both our Divisadero and SFMOMA locations—if not for all of you. Our Sightglass family, friends and customers who, at one point or another, have stopped by, said hello, shared a drink and conversation with a friend in one of our coffee bars, or simply enjoyed a quick cup on the go. Thank you for your continued support of our company, our mission and our coffees. We feel so incredibly fortunate to wake up and do what we love, each and every day.
We look forward to welcoming you into our newest home. We’ll meet you on the third floor when the museum reopens, May 14, 2016!
