Take a stroll through Florida history, then enjoy First Coast ocean-front dining!
Our July 2021 Cars & Coffee will be held at Art ‘n Motion (https://www.artnmotioncars.com) located among Northeast Florida automotive history. Art ‘n Motion is on the north end of the nation's oldest city of St. Augustine, FL. The site is the former home of the Yarborough Cadillac dealership, razed before the new building was constructed. Scott Lagasse Racing also works out of the building. The shop restores and maintains performance stock car racing vehicles, including the Trans Am Road Race Series TA2 specialty class. Several Florida-produced Mosler sports cars and race cars have been displayed in the showroom. Currently, there are currently two Mosler MT900 GT3 race cars in the showroom, among many other legendary cars. Art ‘n Motion Vice President Justin Felker also manages the Ponte Vedre Auto Show, this year, on November 14.
Art 'n Motion was dreamed up to appear as an early 1900's industrial-style building. Sitting just within the St. Augustine city entrance, this building needed to fit in with the feel of the nation's oldest city but also stand out as an old "Main Street" building would. Art 'n Motion displays classic and rare automobiles that are available for sale. Many of the vehicles are collected by the founders but car owners will often display their rare car in the building's "showroom" to display for other car lovers and collectors. Art 'n Motion's floor-to-ceiling windows facing the main road show off the vehicles and attract car lovers daily.
Two doors down south bound is DOS Coffee & Wine (https://www.DOSbar.com) if you would like hand-crafted coffee beverages. DOS Coffee & Wine is housed in a revived old auto parts/repair shop, formerly known as Reliable Auto Parts. We'll gather at the white, one story building, to the right of the brick building.
After enjoying Cars & Coffee, we’ll head over to The Reef, 4100 Coastal Highway, St. Augustine to enjoy their 11am brunch, where you can order a variety of à la carte items.
The Reef is a unique dining experience overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Be sure to check out their website and menus! (https://TheReefStAugustine.com).
Art 'n Motion will be open for us to browse their inventory, and event space in the building.
Additional House of Assembly event venue options can be found here: https://houseofassemblyevents.com, including "The Carriage House".
