Local coffee house La Paloma Sabanera will be closing at the end of June.
Beyond selling coffee, snacks, breakfast and lunch, it has provided a venue for film screenings, improv comedy, storytelling, meetings, and socializing.
La Paloma consistently got voted in the top three on the Hartford Advocate’s “Best of Hartford Readers’ Poll,” including being named as one of the best places for live Latin music in 2013. Musicians who played here include Sinan Bakir, Mijo de la Palma, Kate Callahan, Fernandito Ferrer, String Theorie, The Underscore Orkestra, and La Sabrosa Sabrosura.
What has been dubbed “Hartford’s living room” will be closing on June 27, 2013.
Until then, owner Virginia Iacobucci says it will be “business as usual.”
She says that employees were notified in advance of the messages released to the general public today.
