One of Missoula’s Newest Hotels Just Added a Local Coffee Shop
Since opening in December of 2022, The Wren Missoula has established itself as a unique and locally-minded hotel in downtown Missoula. Your first encounter with The Wren may have been on New Year’s Eve when an egg they helped sponsor became the first “Egg Drop” to ring in the New Year.
The latest development at The Wren just shows how interested the business is in supporting the local community. Posts on Instagram this week announced a new collaboration with a local coffee shop.
Black Coffee Roasting Company is adding a location inside The Wren Missoula.
When asked about how this collaboration came about, Kelsey Borge, Regional Director of Marketing for The Wren, said, “A coffee aficionado made the introductions to Black Coffee and the rest is history.”
Black Coffee Roasting Company, located on Spruce Street, is also known for being a locally minded company, with a recent collaboration with local creator Brendan Leonard and of course, their partnership with 2023 James Beard Award Nominee, Grist Milling & Bakery. The Black Coffee Roasting Company's location inside The Wren will be the company's new retail location as it’s noted on Instagram. The Spruce Street location will undergo "maintenance and reconfiguration" and will reopen, but it's unclear when.
The Wren has partnered with other local and Montana businesses, too. Borge says the Montana-based men’s clothing retailer Revolvr Menswear also has a location inside The Wren, and the hotel, in its efforts to be a “launchpad for travelers,” features local art and objects from the area.
“We are thrilled to feature a selection of art installations and artifacts in our lobby from partnerships with the Missoula Art Museum, The National Museum of Forest Service History, and The Smokejumper Visitor Center, in an effort to connect visitors with the community in a meaningful way,” Borge said.
The Wren is located on the corner of Pattee and Main in downtown Missoula. Keep an eye on this location as the weather warms. Borge also shared the hotel will have a "living roof."
