Playful and energetic, the coati (pronounced ko-ah-tee) is a small, racoon-like animal from South America, and it is the perfect mascot for Colorado Springs’ first-ever food hall and culinary incubator.
Located in the Trolley District’s newly approved entertainment neighborhood on South Tejon, this 13,000-square-foot space with towering skylights, exposed brick, and a funky neon–industrial look is taking the Springs culinary scene by storm.
Aaron Ewton, owner of the Atlas Restaurant Group and principal owner of CO.A.T.I, is a true visionary. “We’re not just another food hall,” he says. “We are an incubator for creatives in Colorado Springs, and that extends from culinary and cocktails to art and music.”
