Strip club turned coffee shop

A coffee shop that use to be a strip club? My friend Crystal and I decided this year we are going to discover small businesses in town that we’ve never been to. Our first stop was a coffee shop called Sacred Grounds. We would have never realized it existed if it wasn’t for yelp mainly because it’s in an area that we don’t frequent.

I’m easily amused by anything that’s cute, not overwhelming, and makes you feel at home.  When you first walk in you are on the coffee shop side and if you want you can walk to the dining area, we stayed on the coffee shop side. Crystal ordered a coffee and I got the milky way. I don’t like the candy bar but I loved this drink!

Crystal left to go to the bathroom after she ordered which left me alone waiting for my drink. Crystal likes to jokingly say that I make a friend everywhere we go which is kind of true I have to admit. While waiting the guy making my drink (the manager I believe) told me about how the coffee shop use to be a strip club but it was bought to by a church and made into what it is now. You do see the religious aspect everywhere in the building. The table we sat at had pages from the book of John on it, there were crosses, a jesus sign, and other things that were either from the bible or correlate with Christianity.

The manager also told me that they have signed bands typically from Nashville that play every month. So we decided one day we would have to check one out. Crystal and I found a table (the book of John table) that was in a corner up the stairs. We loved that table because we could see everything, feel like we were in our own v.i.p. area and there is a lampshade made out of bottle caps beside our table. I know that amused me like no other. Even if you aren’t religious you can’t deny how great this coffee shop is once you’ve been in it unlike other coffee shops there was a sense of calm in Sacred Grounds.
