The Molecule Effect will open its second location on Sunday, bringing its art-friendly coffee and booze cafe concept to Washington Park West.

Co-owners Mark Landman and Megyn Rodgers said they’re putting finishing touches on their new, larger space at 300 South Logan Street. The first Molecule Effect opened in 2014 in the Art District on Santa Fe, a fitting area for a cafe Landman said is all about creating chemistry and community through engagement. She said they’ve been looking for a second location for three years.

“Wash Park is one of those special neighborhoods that was calling our name, and so we had been searching high and low for a location in Wash Park,” she said. “When this location opened up, we were all over it.”

The cafe will serve food, wine, cocktails and beer in addition to coffee. Landman said the new space is about twice as big as their existing cafe and will include bar seating and space for performances and art displays, similar to what their cafe on Santa Fe Drive has.
