The staff members at The Rock House wouldn’t lavish their attention on any old beans picked out of a wholesale catalogue—they needed a more personal experience with the coffee-growing industry. To guarantee the wholly non-exploitative origins of each cup of java served at their shop, the coffee brewers partnered with growers in Sri Lanka to develop their very own crops and went the extra mile to ensure quality by roasting all the beans in-house. As the staff brews single cups with an artisanal pour-over method, customers can sift through rock-’n’-roll-inspired merchandise under the light streaming from naked light bulbs, chandeliers, and disco balls.

Lavender walls, marble bartops, and backlit display cases of imported sake, shochu, and whiskey bottles cocoon revelers in a ritzy backdrop as they sip craft cocktails made with fizzy tonics and fresh fruit juices.
