Local interior design firm Commune designs a premier destination for the West Hollywood Design District neighborhood with Verve Melrose’s new craft coffee shop. Located on the corner of Melrose Avenue and N. Almont Drive, Verve Coffee opened its doors September 1.
To create the space, Verve Coffee Roasters partnered with Commune, a West Hollywood Design District-based design agency. Commune’s existing commercial design portfolio consists of many well-known locations within the interior design community, including Ace Hotel DTLA, The Elder Statesman, a luxury lifestyle retailer also located within the WHDD, amongst other notable commercial properties.
“The collaboration between Commune and Verve Melrose speaks volume about not only the quality of our businesses and its continual impact on the design world at large, but also the unique sense of community our retailers share,” says Anne Van Gorp, WHDD Marketing Manager.
The partnership is just another example of the West Hollywood Design District’s shared community vision and authenticity that preserves the neighborhood’s identity, setting it apart from surrounding areas. With this incredibly designed cafe, Verve shows a commitment to maintain the West Hollywood Design District’s balance between bringing new businesses to the neighborhood and maintaining the creative culture of the community.
Along with Verve’s opening, there has been an explosion of new businesses and development within the hub of the West Hollywood Design District, ranging from restaurants and cafes to showrooms and retail spaces. The District continues to uphold its longstanding community experience that distinguishes the area as unique and creative-minded.
The West Hollywood Design District expects continued shop openings that will intersect stunning design with different trades in order to promote the community’s experience. Visit Verve Melrose Monday through Friday 7:00am-9:00pm, and Friday and Saturday until 11:00pm at 8925 Melrose Avenue.
