For 40 years, smartbar has been dedicated to providing a space for new and emerging artists from its underground landmark post on Chicago's North Clark Street.
With a legacy spanning decades, the club that stood witness to the birth of Chicago's house and techno communities, has now become one of the longest remaining independently owned and operated nightclubs in the country.
In celebration of smartbar's 40th Anniversary, we honor the past that brought us to the present. We honor the misfits, the outsiders, the inspired, the risk takers, the art-driven communiites that believe music and culture come first, and that all who continue to show up and dance with us along the way.
40 years of sharing in this community isn't really nostalgic as much as it's a testament to survival. So, brew yourself a big pot and let's keep the party going - our work here is not yet done.
Proceeds from each bag sold will benefit Center on Halsted, a Chicago non-profit and comprehensive community center dedicated to advancing community and securing the health and well-being of the LGBTQ people o Chicagoland.
*** Sold as whole bean by default. If you would like it ground, please indicate your preference in the notes section – drip, espresso, or press.
