Good Life Coffee House is spreading its aromatic coffee smells into a new building. The coffee shop, which opened in the summer, has recently expanded its Ind. 32 location into the former bank building at Union Street and Ind. 32.
But the sweet smells of freshly-baked scones won’t be the only thing bringing in customers. The expanded room is home to student bands and other performers every Friday night for Open Mic Night from 6 to 9 p.m.
And if the sounds and smells aren’t enough to lure you in, the sights may. Good Life Coffee House Owner Lisa Howe just started construction two weeks ago on an art gallery that will be located on the bank building’s second floor.
The gallery will feature student art and be open for Westfield residents to display their artistic pieces.
Good Life employee Chelsea Hackett said the expansion has already increased the traffic through the building.
“The expanded space actually makes it able for us to have live music. It’s brought in a lot of students, families and friends,” Hackett said.
Hackett said the coffee house’s new ventures will have something for everyone.
“It’ll bring a variety of people in; there’s more than just coffee here. There’s music, art and things people want to see and be a part of,” Hackett said.
