Free Press opening Canada's first News Cafe

  • Print

WINNIPEG - Ever wanted to have a cup of coffee with your favourite journalist?

Now’s your chance. The Winnipeg Free Press has signed an agreement with a local restaurant operator to open Canada’s first "News Cafe."

Situated at the corner of McDermot Avenue and Arthur Street in the Exchange District, the News Cafe will be a community hub where people can get something to eat or drink and interact with journalists working there.

The News Cafe will also house a small stage from which we will webcast a wide variety of programming. The stage will double as a performance space.

The Free Press has taken possession of the space this week and is gearing up for a spring opening. 

A web presence for the cafe - including a blog that will chronicle construction and behind-the-scenes work - will be added to winnipegfreepress.com soon.
