SEATTLE- After a bikini barista shop in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood closed after failing to attract enough customers,a new coffee shop employing shirtless men has taken its place.
As first reported by Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, Dreamboyz Espresso opened on Sept. 13.
The owners say it's currently the only coffee stand operated by shirtless men in Washington state.
The stand is located in a parking lot at the corner of Broadway and Harrison. Ladybug Espresso, which used to occupy the space, closed recently after a lack of business
But the new all-male barista stand is turning a lot of heads.
I saw a hunky guy in there," said Jacob Haeger, who lives in the neighborhood. "There was a topless guy sitting in there with swollen pecs and whatnot," he said.
"I saw it was men running it and that was even more awesome. They're in these kind of brief bikinis and they're all very good-looking young men, so I think both men and women will enjoy the difference," said Shoma Goomansingh, another Cap Hill resident.
The Dreamboyz stand is still in its soft open phase. The two baristas put up the sign with the slogan, "Hot Guys Serving Hot Coffee" on Tuesday, and it immediately got people to turn heads and pull out their phones to take a picture.
