The Story So Far:
Thanks for your interest in MilkBoy! MilkBoy is an all-ages venue that is open early for coffee junkies and stays open late for shows and creative arts events. Our mission is to be a creative-community meeting place where people’s minds and bellies can be filled.
A little back-story: MilkBoy was founded in 1994 as MilkBoy Recording by musician and recording engineer Tommy Joyner. A few years later, composer Jamie Lokoff came in to produce a commercial jingle and felt so at home he never left, deciding to join MilkBoy as a partner and staff composer. In 2001, MilkBoy Recording had grown to need more space, and we chose to move to Ardmore in a fabulous building owned by a really nice gentleman named Paul Lichtman. Best landlord ever, by the way.
So now we will jump in the story to one day in 2005, when MilkBoy owners Tommy Joyner and Jamie Lokoff were having one of our ‘BIG TALKS’ where we try to figure out how to make our dreams happen, and we hit upon the idea of an all-ages venue. We were already called MilkBoy, what a perfect name for a coffeeshop!
MilkBoy Coffee is located on the MainLine in an area that is bursting with talent. We, Tommy, Jamie and the MilkBoy crew are thrilled to give many local and national acts a stage to showcase their art to an appreciative audience.
On Monday through Saturday we open at 7AM and close whenever the show is over with – usually around 10 or 11. On Sundays we open at 8AM and close at 5PM. If on a given night, we don’t have anything booked, we close at 6PM.
