The idea that the construction and finishing touches of Beyú Caffé’s new location at 341 West Main St. in Durham would be complete in early May—just in time to act as the only free venue for this year's Art of Cool Fest—always seemed too good to be true.

Beyú owner Dorian Bolden had tried to squeeze his cafe’s six-month relocation project into a two-month window. By the time the festival rolled around, Beyú’s unfinished oak facade remained wrapped in a tarp, forcing the festival to improvise by relocating shows to a second-floor space above the nearby Luna Rotisserie.

This evening, exactly one month since Beyú closed its original location, the downtown Durham coffee, cocktail, food, and jazz destination will have its grand re-opening party in the new, expanded space. In traditional Beyú fashion, the re-opening will include back-to-back jazz performances—this time by the Aaron Hill Trio, featuring Durham bassist Jason Foureman and Cary drummer Aaron Tucker. It’s the first in a three-day spree of grand re-opening shows that also includes local jazz-jam favorite Al Strong on Friday and “Funkin’ for Jamaica” horn legend Tom Browne on Saturday.

Beyú Caffé’s free grand re-opening kickoff starts tonight at seven p.m. On Friday morning, the cafe will resume its normal operating hours. For free tickets to either one of tonight’s Aaron Hill Trio shows, visit Beyú’s website.
