DMC is proud to announce the opening of our new location, Meddle! We are super excited to have the world's first Psychedelegance coffee shop! The grand opening date will be Friday, October 21st at 6:00am!
Below is a brief story of DMC, Meddle's hours and location. Thank you all so much for being a part of this magical Family, we couldn't have done it without the support!!
Conceptually, Dark Matter resembles a rock 'n roll band, with each location representing "albums".Using this philosophy, Star Lounge Coffee Bar was our freshman album, a break through that continues to energize the Chicago coffee scene. We rapidly gained accolades for our community driven movement with quality as the core focus. Soon after came our roastery, "The Mothership - Intergalactic Headquarters" a hub for experimentation and continual education. An innovative and rule breaking sophomore record, structured around four different roasting machines to profile coffee in ways that had not been approached yet. The headquarters also added new staff in our cosmic army, increasing our fuel for the masses, energizing and creating a new portion of the material universe that is here to stay.
Having successfully conquered the "sophomore slump", we decided to take the time and create another experience outside of our Humboldt Park/Ukrainian Village comfort zone. We took our ideas to the long established neighborhood of Lakeview to open the infamous "Osmium Coffee Bar." (Video recap.) Osmium quickly grabbed the attention of the north side of the city with it's oozing chocolate walls, and thirdeyes watching over the chrome and blue soaked environment. This third location further identified each individual store with unique but extreme differences in design and neighborhood feel, avoiding any replication between locations.
Which brings us to Meddle Coffee Bar, our first downtown shop. After countless sessions with the beyond talented muralist, Jason Brammer, we coined our image for Meddle as "Psychedelegance". With purple swirling floors, white subway tile with black grout,datura trumpets ripping out of the bricks, a coffee jungle coming to life, and purple neon so alive it brings flashbacks to the forefront of your brain, Meddle brings our counter culture spirit to the West Loop neighborhood.
