The main street entrance to World Coffee Cafe is located directly adjacent to the grand lobby entrance (known as 20 Battery Park Avenue). You may also access the cafe through the lobby by going past the elevator on your left, through the glass breezeway door and then to your left through the yellow metal door (which is often propped open).
We are located on the ground floor of the triangle-shaped nine-storey low-rise skyscraper known as the Flatiron Building. Constructed in 1926, it sits between Battery Park Avenue and Wall Street.
A large sculpture representing an actual flat iron (an old-fashioned cast iron appliance designed to be heated and used for smoothing wrinkles out of clothing) designed by Reed Todd in 1997 is located across from the blunted point as an homage to this architectural treasure.
After World Coffee Cafe closes its doors, we invite you to visit SkyBAR, our award-winning drink destination with stunning panoramic balcony views, classically crafted cocktails and a brand new Spring 2018 Tapas Menu!
To visit SkyBAR, enter through the lobby of the The Flatiron Building and press the buzzer on the wall to the right of our antique Otis hand-operated elevators. The Elevator Operator will come down, check your identification and bring you up to the top for an unforgettable Asheville experience.
