The Nitro Cart Brews Big Plans

The pop-up cold brew cart to open a new cafe on the West Side


The #NitroCartel has spoken. In mid-January, The Nitro Cart will open their first permanent physical location on the West Side of Providence – The Nitro Bar. The new space will be located inside of Dash Bicycle on Broadway. The Nitro Bar promises the hip ambience of Brooklyn, where the owners have roots.

For months, the mobile coffee dispensary traveled to various locations across the state, winning over fans with their creamy cold brew coffee. Though the carts are small, they’re well equipped: locally sourced beans are brewed cold before being poured over a patent-pending nitro system. Currently, the company operates a fleet of 30 carts, and over two dozen local businesses and restaurants offer Nitro brew on tap, including Brown University’s campus and Teas and Javas on Angell Street.

Now that they have a permanent home of their own, they’ll expand their menu with more Nitro offerings and espresso drinks. The owners, Audrey Finocchiaro and Sam Lancaster, hope the Nitro Bar becomes a space where people come to hang out and relax while enjoying a nice cold brew.
