Victoria’s Espresso & Wine Bar closes in Aspen after 14 years

The ownership of Victoria’s Espresso & Wine Bar has closed the Australian-style cafe after nearly 15 years serving patrons in downtown Aspen.

Owners Victoria Haveman and John Beatty said they are moving on after holding an inventory sale Monday through Wednesday this week at the 510 E. Durant Ave. location.

“Victoria & Co has been in business for 14 years — we achieve what we set out to do: to change the landscape of the coffee industry in 2008 to embrace the Aussie Cafe style of food and coffee,” they said in a statement provided to The Aspen Times. “We think both those product lines at Victoria & Co are legendary.”

The company website also said, “It’s time to enjoy the fruits of our success. We are proud of what we have achieved. Sincere deep gratitude to those who have cared for us and supported us and appreciated our passion, hard work, long hours & scratch made everything. Special thanks to the amazing staff we have had over the years, especially Omar.”

Located around the corner from the Belly Up Aspen nightclub and short walk from the gondola at the base of Aspen Mountain, Victoria’s grew a loyal stable of patrons — often seen dining, drinking wine or sipping coffee on its patio.
