The West Village will be adding yet more European flair to its tree-lined streets as it welcomes an espresso franchise direct from the continent.

A 2,500 square-foot espresso bar, a European franchise, will be moving to 504 Sixth Avenue, at 13th Street, according to a spokesperson for New York Commercial Real Estate Services, which represented both the landlord and the tenant in the 10-year lease deal. The asking rent was $34,500 per month.

The franchise, which the spokesperson declined to name, has no other New York City locations, but does plan to open additional coffee shops in Gotham in the coming months.

James Famularo, managing director of NYCRS represented the landlord, and his colleague, agent Ravi Idnani represented the tenant. — Guelda Voien
