Chez-Zara Espresso Bar | M@dison Building, Detroit, MI

Residents of the newly renovated Broderick Tower won’t have to travel far for a fresh cup of joe in the morning. Nestled on the Broadway side of the highly talked about M@dison building is the recently opened flagship store of Chez-Zara, a local espresso bar.

The 900 square-foot store will be serving up several drinks -espresso, organic tea- as well as some delicious pastries from Midtown’s Avalon bakery. The Detroit-based company offers comfortable seating in a modern space equipped with WiFi and an outdoor patio. The M@dison Building, a collaborative tech hub, underwent extensive renovations to its five floors and more than 55,000 square-feet of space. It’s becoming a special place and that’s what caught the eye of Chez-Zara’s owner Mallak Beydoun.

“The M@dison is the perfect fit for Chez-Zara because the building is literally buzzing with activity day and night,” said Beydoun. “When we saw so many inspiring people in the M@dison Building looking to build something special and grow in this region, we knew we found the perfect spot for our flagship location.”

The M@dison was originally designed by C. Howard Crane and constructed in 1917 as the Madison Theatre. It is now 100 percent full with more than 125 people working in the building. Chez-Zara, which has been operating a mobile location in the lobby of the Chase Tower Building, anticipates employing a team of three at the M@dison location and will be open at 7 a.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. on weekends.
