Unique cafe by day, bar by night opening in Italian Village next month

Jack McLaughlin

A sleek new hybrid food and drink concept from the Columbus development group Thrive Cos. is bringing flexibility and gourmet drinks to Italian Village.

Bada Bean Bada Booze will hold its official grand opening on Dec. 2, from 6 p.m. until midnight. Bada Bean Bada Booze is located at 231 E. First Ave., within Thrive’s Jeffrey Park Apartments.

As its name suggests, the new 2,500 square foot space will feature Florin Coffee Roasters coffee by day, before transforming into a sleek bar with craft cocktails and more in the evening hours.


“We really wanted to bring a cool concept for our residents, although we are open to the public too, that could be both a pit stop before going into work, and a comfortable neighborhood bar,” said Daivd Moeser, Co-Director of Experience–Food & Beverage in an interview earlier this year.

Thrive Cos. plans to bring three other Bada Bean Bada Booze locations, which will all be located within Thrive developments, in the near future, although opening dates for these have not been announced.
