Capital One 360 Cafe Is Opening in Boston's Back Bay (and Other Locations Are Coming)
A combination cafe/bank is on its way to the Back Bay of Boston, and this is just the first of its kind to come to the area.
Eater Boston is reporting that Capital One bank is planning to open something called Capital One 360 Cafe on Boylston Street, with the spot being a hybrid cafe and bank. The article mentions that the place will actually be home to a Peet's Coffee, so it appears that the Peet's Coffee shop and the bank area will have the blanket name Capital One 360 Cafe (we will try to confirm this over the coming days). EB says that this concept can be found in other cities, with Peet's Coffee indeed being integrated into the hybrid outlets, while the cafe page mentions that free Wi-Fi is offered at the branches.
[January 30 update: Based on information from a Licensing Board page on the City of Boston website, it seems that Peet's will indeed be setting up within the upcoming Capital One bank/cafe hybrid in the Back Bay.]
[February 25 update: Eater Boston mentions that Capital One 360 Cafe is now open in the Back Bay.]
Other locations of Capital One 360 Cafe are also planned for Downtown Crossing, Harvard Square in Cambridge, and Coolidge Corner in Brookline.
The address for this new cafe/bank in the Back Bay is: Capital One 360 Cafe, 799 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the cafes can be found at http://cafes.capitalone360.com/
