Quick Note: We will be Closed July 21st, 2014!

First off - what the heck is up with this July weather?  x1000 please!  

Now, for the real meat of this note - we wanted to let you know that we will be closed on Monday, July 21st for our yearly clean and mend session.  

This time allows our staff to gather in the morning and have coffee together and then tear the place apart (inside and out) to freshen things up and make EVOKE the best place it can be for you to come, sip and talk.

We know this is a pain for you but we promise we will be open regular hours on Tuesday, July 22nd!

Thanks for understanding and bearing with us as we clean this place up!

(PS: Help us spread the word!)

2014 Le Tour de France

Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride. —Eddie Merckx

July. In our opinion, the most wonderful time of the year.  The cool weather, slight breeze, low humidity, perfect. July is the home of the Tour de France, one of bicycle racing’s most coveted 3 weeks of the year. This year’s version has proven, so far, to be another great one with millions of folks lining the route and riders going crazy to set the stage for the final day.

Yep, besides coffee, waffles and craft beer, not much is as dear to our hearts as cycling.  

We will be streaming EVERY STAGE of the Tour (like we always do!) and we’d love for you to swing through, grab a waffle and espresso and enjoy yourself. 

Here is the remainder of the TV schedule. We will probably open up early for the epic mountain stages as we can (follow us on twitter for those details!) Ride your bike in

Look, a waffle mama… and I helped!

Have you just been itching to get into the kitchen and make some awesome waffles, baked goods and other good eats?  Do you love plating and running great food to super fun customers?  Do you need a job?

Well, well, well….  we have a solution.  EVOKE!

That’s right, we are looking for a kitchen folk to help continue our great food service.  From baking to plating and more, the right person could be you.

The ideal person for this job is someone that loves to create, cook and charm our customers with good looking and even better tasting food items.  We aren’t looking for Betty Crocker (but if you are her, please fill out an application, ASAP!) - just someone that wants to have a great time, knows their way around a kitchen, work in a crazy environment and help us stuff our friends each and every day with awesome food.

So, what do you get in return?  You get a fun place to work 20-30 hours per week (weekends required), great discounts on food / drink and retail items at EVOKE and a canvas to create awesome new things!  Pay will be determined upon interview.

Still interested?

Please swing by our shop in Downtown Edmond and pick up + fill out an application.  Return it to one of the baristas and we will review it.  If we think you could be a fit, we will give you a nudge and have you in for an interview.  Please be ready to “get your hands dirty” a bit on this interview and wow our crew with our cooking skills!

Cool. We look forward to reading your application!

A Community Drinking Place…

Hey, I’m Jason and one of the owners of EVOKE.

Bars - including ours - are community drinking places - open to all (or should be).  We allow anyone to use our space and be a part of what we are doing.  We have groups of all sizes, backgrounds, cultural influence and political leanings.  To us, that is what makes our place so great. 

As you may have noticed, we have lots of people shooting commercials and films at EVOKE: community action, documentary, religious, political, commercial, etc…  Some of these are local companies. Some of these are national companies.  We love our space and love that people want to use it!

We hoped it went without saying but we want to be clear.  Our brand does not hold any views other than community and coffee (and maybe craft beer, too!).  We love our regulars, our semi regulars and the people that walk through the front door for the first time. We love the conversations, the interactions and serving you.  

Please know that lots of folks use our building - that is why we built it. We are not expressing any views, beliefs or any thing else when people rent our building for projects or parties.  

We want to be your social coffee bar.  We want EVOKE to “evoke” that conversation, debate and a real good time with friends. That’s it.

So, cheers!
