In a press release, the Mayor’s Office announced that Felicidad Café House, a café offering live music, social events, and healthy food, is officially open for business at 245 Main Street, former home of Bristol Hairdressing School and most recently Bristol Billiards.

I named it ‘Happiness Café’, because I want everyone to be happy and enjoy their life,” Sinchi said.

The release Sinchi plans to offer a wide variety of social events at the café, including comedy, dancing, mariachi bands, and even Zumba.
