A new quick-service, gourmet takeout will open its doors on Front Street next month.

Brew by Java Jive, an Island Restaurant Group operation, will offer counter service and will be located downstairs from The Pickled Onion.

Philip Barnett, director and president of IRG, said: “We are calling it Brew because that is how we make coffee, beer and it is also a well-known colloquial term Bermudians use to greet each other.”

Mr Barnett believes this will be a unique type of business for the area. “This will be something new for Front Street,” he said.

“We closed Java Jive, so it is basically going to be the same foods and coffee service, that’s why we are calling it Brew by Java Jive.”

Mr Barnett said the same staff who were at the Java Jive location will now be at Brew. “Our staff are amazing, they won the Best of Bermuda Awards for their customer service three years in a row,” Mr Barnett said.

Not only will the restaurant be a quick-service takeout, customers have the ability to sit in while working, having business meetings or just to relax.

The restaurant will have complimentary wi-fi service and the ability to plug-in connected devices to charge and work remotely.

“We highly recommend people use the space for coffee meetings, after work for beers or a glass of wine. Our prices are reasonable and our food is excellent,” Mr Barnett added.

The takeout will open at 7am. “We are not sure what time we will close yet, we will see the response to customer demands,” Mr Barnett added.
