Modern Times & Consortium Holdings Unveil Collaboration Invigatorium Coffee House In San Diego's East Village

July 24, 2019

San Diego-based Modern Times Beer has teamed up with local hospitality group Consortium Holdings (Born & Raised, Morning Glory) for a contemporary coffee house concept dubbed the Invigatorium, now open in downtown San Diego's East Village.

Located in the downtown space where Coffee & Tea Collective sat before recently relocating to 704 J Street, Consortium Holdings has teamed up with San Diego's ever-expanding Modern Times Beer to open a retro-style coffee shop called Invigatorium, which will offer an array of coffee concoctions, cold brews, pour-over drinks, and Modern Times craft beers, as well as various vegan pastries and snacks from Split Bakehouse. The Invigatorium is open at 631 9th Street starting today at 7am and will operate until 7pm daily. The space is designed with a gigantic gold disco ball hanging front and center, a velociraptor statue behind the bar, and a dragon mural made from Post-It notes. In addition to coffee and small bites, the business will offer sell Modern Time Coffee packaged to-go.

Soon to open next door to Invigatorium at 631 9th Avenue is J & Tony's Discount Cured Meats and Negroni Warehouse, an industry-focused sandwich shop and Negroni-focused bar from Consoritum Holdings Corporate Chef Jason McCloud and beverage director Anthony Schmidt. Expect a 10 seat bar with a fast casual in-house eatery centered around cured-meat sandwiches, housemade charcuterie, pickled vegetables, and an aperitivo-centric craft cocktail list. J & Tony's hopes to open at some point in August.
