Derby Joe in Salem Has Closed

An espresso bar on the North Shore has shut down, and it isn't yet known what might be going into its space.

According to a source, Derby Joe in Salem is no longer in business, with a photo showing a "For Rent" sign in the doorway of the Derby Street spot. The place was known in part for its cold brew coffee, while also offering espresso, tea, and sandwiches as well--and it also hosted late-night events and game nights, and helped promote local artists and charity organizations.

We have been told by our source that Derby Joe first opened approximately 5 years ago. [Ed note--we had originally reported that it opened 10 years ago; we regret the error.]

The address for Derby Joe was 142 Derby Street, Salem, MA, 01970.
