Downtown blogger and transit oriented real estate agent Brigham Yen (read our interview with him here) reports that the 7th Street Metro Center Station will soon be home to Rush Snack Bar, a new venture that will cater to Metro commuters and downtown denizens.
The shop is located in a subterranean retail space nestled in the Hope Street portal of the station (long hidden by an advertisement). That’s right, this shop will actually be inside the subway station – a station that’s home to the four Metro Rail lines (including the under construction Expo Line).
According to owner Andrew Cohen, Rush will serve “a variety of fresh juices; All different types of pastries; Salads, sandwiches, sodas, chips and gourmet coffee,” and should be opening this summer.
Of course, Metro has rules against consuming food or drink on Metro rail but that shouldn’t stop commuters from grabbing a snack on the way out of the station.
Head over to Brigham’s blog for the full story and a sneak peak at how the shop will look.
