New café comes to the Bronx. Help name it and win a free lunch for six!


We’re happy to announce that The Bronx Museum of The Arts is opening up a new café in The Bronx right in the museum itself and has selected and partnered up with Welcome2TheBronx for a naming competition!

The winner in naming the new cafe will win a free lunch along with five of their friends, family or loved ones; it’s completely up to you who you bring along to the party so to speak! The runner up to the contest will receive 2 tickets to a paid Bronx Museum event!

All you have to do go CLICK HERE and fill out this form to submit your suggestion and that’s it! Entries will be accepted from now through July 1st so make sure you get those suggestions in on time!

After the entries are submitted, you, the community, will have an opportunity to vote on your favorite finalists and then the winner will be announced at an open house.

How cool is it that you have the opportunity to name it and brag all about it too!?

According to the Bronx Musuem, “The café naming opportunity is a chance for members of the community to get involved in the Museum’s upcoming venture, and true to our ongoing commitment to engage our community.   As excited as we are for the café to open, we also recognize this as an ideal dining option for residents as well as those who work near the Museum”.

The yet-to-be-named café will offer salads, sandwiches, wines, pastries and, of course, coffee for both museum visitors and locals alike. What better place to hang out in a cafe than one that’s in a museum, how cool is that?

The café will be run in partnership with Fountain House, an organization which dedicates itself to providing learning and working opportunities to local residents recovering from mental illness providing a wonderful way to give back to the community through this vehicle.

So what are you waiting for, get your thinking hats on, click on this link, and come up with a name for the new café which is scheduled to open on August 2nd!
