Philadelphia, PA - Located on the ground level of the Graham Building on 15th St., Parliament boasts superior coffee beverages, house-made pastries and a variety of seasonally-rotating “grab and go” sandwiches and salads.
Parliament Espresso and Coffee Bar Philadelphia will operate a 1,784 square-foot café on the ground level of the Graham Building, complete with seating for 50 guests to relax, meet with friends and work. Parliament is home to complimentary Wi-Fi and a large selection of charging stations, perfect for the on-the-go businessperson, as well as communal tables and lounge seating for those looking to unwind in a more casual environment.
Local design elements at Parliament pave way for an industrial, yet warm atmosphere that encourages guest to come in, sit down and stay for a while. Guests will be greeted with a Parliament marquee light fixture placed behind a reclaimed Pennsylvania blue slate-adorned coffee bar. Additional local reclaimed design elements include, but are not limited to, the interior wood, scaffolding, lighting and vintage furniture. Lastly, Parliament features an expansive wall mural – the “Henry” mural - which tells the story of Parliament’s history and the social consciousness of Parliament’s coffee bean sourcing process. The Henry mural was hand drawn in chalk by local Philadelphia artist Christian Kainenberg of WISH Unlimited.
“Great coffee is essentially about great people, quality machines and direct-sourced beans,” explains Ken Kouba, Coffee Manager at Parliament and STARR Catering Group. “At Parliament, we place a superlative emphasis on all three to bring our commitment to quality coffee and customer service to life.”
The Parliament coffee concept focuses heavily on the role of the barista and establishing a talented group of avid, well-trained, highly knowledgeable coffee enthusiasts who are passionate about both the Parliament brand and the total coffee experience. These individuals, combined with Parliament’s longstanding relationship with La Marzocco espresso machines, provide a guaranteed unparalleled cup of espresso – a true “work of art” – every time you sip with Parliament.
Hours of Operation: Parliament Coffee and Espresso Bar will be open 7:00am – 6:00pm Monday through Friday and 10:00am – 4:00pm on Saturday.
