    Has anyone added wine bar to their coffee shop?

    We're considering adding a wine bar to our coffee shop. It would be a huge change for us, so I'd like to hear from others that have done it in the past.

    We have a brew pub next door, and often hear from people that don't like beer (here in our area, brew pubs can only sell beer brewed on premises, and nothing else.) We thought that might provide an option for people that would prefer wine.

    Right now, is your coffee shop thriving or failing? Why do you want to provide an option for people who prefer wine? Are you looking to keep your coffee shop open later hours to draw in some extra business?

    Well, at least you can try Baileys, Kahlua, Patron XO Cafe, Café Rica, Golden Cream, etc. first. I haven't met a single coffee drinker who doesn't like those...

    We are not making money but that's ok since that was not the intention. The coffee shop is part of a nonprofit with the mission of creating connections between cultures and assisting the new immigrant population with language skills and cultural integration.

    We're just looking for reasons to increase the amount of business and people through the doors. The coffee business is pretty much dead after 5:00 pm. There was a coffee shop in our location 10 years ago that served wine. While it wasn't a huge hit, it was also before the brew pub was open next door.

    It would be only wine, since a wine license in our community is fairly inexpensive. Adding liqueurs would require a full alcohol license which is expensive and adds several layers of regulations.
