There's a sign in the window of the Common Grounds at 1601 17th Street, and it's not good news. The landlord has put this prime piece of real estate up for lease, and that means LoDo could lose a great local coffeehouse (and a barista who was once on Survivor). There's a latte to love about this place.
Common Grounds is reportedly looking for a new LoDo home. And, of course, the original is firmly ensonced at 3484 West 32nd Avenue.
