The History of Our Building


Our Building was built in 1887 by its original owner, Thomas Allen, a builder by profession.

In 1906 the building was expanded. the commercial space fronting James St. North was converted into a hotel lobby and drinking establishment, and the building commenced its existence as ‘Armory Hotel’. Its main clients of the day were the armed forces officers and their families from the Armory facilities directly across James St. North.

Original plaster ceiling medallions have been maintained and enhanced in the former hotel lobby i.e where you get your coffee. Check out our original inlaid tile work in the floor of the cafe.

Delmar Junction’s Chris James Dennis Live at Mulberry


Chris James Dennis is the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for Delmar Junction - a roots rock band from Southern Ontario, Canada residing between the major urban centres of Toronto and Hamilton.

Equally rhythmic, aggressive and delicate yet always brutally honest, the music is best described as vintage roots rock with a distinct soulful twist.

The band is currently preparing to record their debut album while continuing to win over lovers of the live music experience.

The idea behind Delmar Junction was born out of Dennis' vision of lending priority to his extensive library of original music, compiled over the better part of a 25 year independent songwriting career.

Join Dennis on June 28 for stripped-down acoustic versions of his original funk/roots/Canadiana music, some cool covers and a chill evening all around.


June’s Featured Artist: Laura Sorbara


Artist Bio & Statement
Laura Sorbara is an artist who's born and raised in Hamilton. Laura got her honour's bachelor of studio arts from McMaster University in 2011. 

This body of work is about the relationship between seemingly mundane everyday tasks and the way mental illness impacts these activities. Simple pleasures are swept aside as mental illness permeates every part of the sufferer's life. Coffee with friends, household chores, even showering all become inexplicably insurmountable when depression settles in. I hope to create a dialogue about how lonely and isolating mental illness can be; people are usually less alone than they think, and it's important to know this.

Clementine Live at Mulberry


Come be enchanted by the gorgeous vocals, guitar and ukelele playing of Sarah Hamilton. "Clementine, a.k.a. Sarah Hamilton, has released an album that is melancholic, wistful, spare, bleak, inviting, and yet strangely not morbid: much like its titular clippings, it meditates on the growth and death and regrowth of things big and small." - Chris Matei, Greyowl Point https://clementine-music.bandcamp.com/releases
