Closing at 17th
Has Beans, at 620 Fifth Avenue, opened at a time when internet cafes were still a thing. After 11 years, the business has quietly closed. I saw this sign today, but I don't know when it actually went up. I was in there a couple of weeks ago and have passed by since then, so I'm guessing it was within the past few days. There aren't so many cafes of this kind nearby, apart from the very friendly Roots (which it has to be said, makes better coffee) and Has Beans came in before many of the hipper bars & restaurants moved to this part of Fifth. But it seemed a little quiet of late. Good luck to the owners with new ventures.
