Some of the best things in life come in two speeds: electric drills, vintage bicycles, and Sandra Bullock. Fuel your lifemobile with a relaxing beer break or an invigorating coffee chug with today’s Groupon. For $7, you get $15 worth of drinks at Derby City Espresso. Located between NuLu and Louisville's Central Business District, Derby City Espresso is Louisville’s first espresso, beer, and tea bar; it opens six days a week at 11 a.m.

At Derby City Espresso, the espresso drinks are derived from either a single or double shot of its espresso, which is made from its La Marzocco Linea espresso machine. A Cubano, which is just a sweetened version of espresso, runs $2 for a single and $3 for a double. DCE’s beer menu appeals to the senses of a beer lover's suds-soaked dreams, with premium craft beers that fall within the affordable price range of ($4–$8). An expansive menu of more than 50 loose-leaf teas completes the selection.

Matthew Landan is the proprietor and only employee of DCE, and he also lives in the expansive storefront, all measures to help rigorously enforce the business's ban on decaffeinated coffee. DCE's vintage furnishings and art deco interior blend his love for music, the arts, and Americana. Whether patrons are looking to jiggle the pinball flippers, peruse the art, or listen to live music as they sip on their beverage of choice, they are welcome to cohabit DCE with Matthew, as long as they don’t touch his frozen pizzas.

Reviews

Six Yelpers give Derby City Espresso four solid stars, and five TripAdvisors give 3.5. Sixty six percent of six Urbanspooners like it:

  • The walls are extremely ornate, with a vast array of found art hanging everywhere. All ages shows and events take place almost every night of the week. There are booths, and there's a dance floor. – Michael P., Yelp
  • A quirky place that reflects its owner, DCE is like going to have a drink of coffee over at a neighbor's. The beer selection looks great and the coffee is excellent. – Zach E., Yelp
