Want more independent coffeehouses? You’ll get two more, starting with Downtown Henderson’s Public Works Coffee Bar. The Water Street mixed-use space­—offering the expected coffee, beer and wine, but also food sourced from Henderson eateries, a conference room and arts programming—will be the area’s first new hangout since Lovelady Brewing opened last year. “I feel really high on Water Street’s potential,” says South End on Water/Public Works developer Windom Kimsey. Meanwhile, Grouchy John’s is preparing to open its second depot at 6350 W. Charleston Blvd., near the Charleston College of Southern Nevada campus—once the target site for the first GJ’s before choosing its Maryland and Wigwam location. Both spots are slated to open within the month should license approvals go as planned.
