According to a recent permit filing, MoRA will open its doors in the Roosevelt area at 6105 Roosevelt Way NE Unit A.
“Minority, women-owned business coming to you from Seattle, WA. Yup, we’re OG-Seattlelites! And together, we have 40+ years in coffee, wine and food. The Mo of our name is Molly aka Molly Ringe of Molly’s Bottle Shop, and the RA is Rachel aka Rachel Skibo of Milstead. We’re so excited to introduce you to MoRA,” Molly Ringe told What Now Seattle.
The company website says, “MoRA will be a new wine bar & cafe in Roosevelt offering natural wine, coffee, and food all day. To bring this exciting project to life, we must raise $50,000 to cover start-up expenses! Think paint, chairs, tables, espresso machine, buildout and more. We’re using our website rather than a fundraising platform so every single dollar you give goes directly toward getting MoRA open!”
“It all started like most things do – over a bottle of wine, chatting with friends. We were hanging out at Molly’s Bottle Shop talking about holding more & bigger pop-up events, supporting local businesses, more artists – ya know, bringing people together around good wine, good food & community. All the stuff that already happens at the 200 sq ft store but with more space and a kitchen! More opportunities for all the cool things like music, food, tastings…”
“And just at that moment, along came the perfect spot in the Roosevelt neighborhood. All it needs is a little love, paint & a few chairs to create a community-driven spot that is filled with really great coffee, yummy food & natural wine all day plus retail wines, An awesome larder of house-made goods & local treasures. LOTS of special events including live music and industry nights – plus pop-ups with our friends!”
“MoRA is gonna be your community hang-out spot. So, if breakfast sandwiches & really damn great coffee are your morning vibes – this is your spot! A glass of natural wine or NA beverage (maybe a little more coffee) & a sandwich for lunch – yup, this is your spot! Wanna share a bottle with friends and have some snacks in the evening – you guessed it – this is the place for you!”
