Joe Downtown: For de facto business center of downtown, nothing beats The Beat


Joe Schoenmann

Since The Beat Coffeehouse opened three years ago inside the Emergency Arts building downtown, it has slowly dawned upon business people and others moving into the eastern part of Fremont Street that it is the place do business, talk details, sign deals and meet. This is a panorama shot Thursday morning inside The Beat, and typical of most days, people are surfing the Internet, a few regulars off their graveyard casino shifts are having coffee and the business of business is being worked out.

Thursday morning at The Beat. Just another busy day at the unofficial center of downtown business.

Joe Schoenmann doesn’t just cover downtown, he lives and works there. Schoenmann is Greenspun Media Group’s embedded downtown journalist, working from an office in the Emergency Arts building.
