Coffee at the Invigatorium

- The Invigatorium
San Diego beer brewing and coffee roasting company Modern Times has always had a flair for fun and immersive interior design. One of the newest examples of this is a life-size velociraptor glaring down over the row of Modern Times tap handles at the company’s latest collaborative venture, The Invigatorium coffee house and beer bar.
In San Diego’s East Village neighborhood, the Invigatorium is the 13th unique concept brought to life by the San Diego creative hospitality company Consortium Holdings, which is no slouch itself when it comes to extravagant interiors. While Consortium is staffing and operating the Invigatorium, the coffee, beer and events on site are pure Modern Times.
Apart from the quality of coffee and beer being served, patrons familiar with Modern Times’ original brewery will notice another dead MT giveaway: a huge mural comprised entirely of Post-It notes, this time depicting a fire-breathing dragon.
“It’s a labor of love,” Modern Times Communications Manager Dan Reed told Daily Coffee News of what’s become a hallmark for the company. “We bottom-lined the post-it note mosaic, [Consortium] bottom-lined the humongous disco ball and life sized dinosaur.”
