About Moodswing Coffee + Bar

on a white background, one purple wide-open eye, and one closed one. The text reads Moodswing Coffee/BarFormerly Old Crow Coffee Co., Moodswing Coffee + Bar is more than just a coffee shop — they’re a venue, a gallery, a marketplace, and now, a cocktail bar. They’ve hosted stand-up, artist talks, open mics, metal shows, and D&D themed pop-ups. They work with other independent businesses and makers, hosting them directly in the space; because in what world is hosting second-hand LGBTQIA+ BIPOC literature in a coffee shop a bad idea? They feel that coffee shops are meant to be harbours for connection and community. Places for, and of, collaboration.
We’re more than just a coffee shop – we’re a space where everyone is welcome. We intentionally keep our pricing accessible so that everyone can enjoy our drinks and food and come together with family, friends, and mysterious forces.

Join us at Steel & Oak Brewery for a fun social evening to celebrate the first Bridges Literary Festival! Book fans (library staff, festival partners, and maybe you!) will give 1 minute presentations on their favourite books and convince you why you should pick up a copy. Come and have a drink, order some fabulous food from the S&O snack kitchen, and enjoy a social time with fellow book-lovers. You will expand your TBR list, for sure!

Please register below so we can plan for numbers, and if you’d like to participate in the book slam, put Book Slammer in the “Age” field. We will be in touch with you directly with instructions!

This is an all-ages event with a cash bar – Steel & Oak has beverages to suit everyone.
