Finances can be stressful. Questions you might be asking, “Am I saving enough for retirement? “Will I have enough money to send my kids to college?” or “Can I leave my job for ____ and still be financially secure?”
We all have concerns around money.
How would you like to feel confident about your personal and financial decisions?
Capital One is helping people get confident with money. From their Capital One Cafes and the Banking Reimagined Tour, they are taking a different approach to financial services. They are combining human connection and banking into one!
Capital One Cafes
This is a big year for Capital One. Their Capital One Cafes have been so successful over the past few years, that they are now expanding them across the United States! These banking cafes have lounges, couches, tables, private meeting rooms and more. The Capital One Cafes “Strive to provide customers with a unique and memorable banking experience”. One way they do this is by having a full-service Peet’s® coffee bar and knowledgeable Capital One Ambassadors.
Re-Imagining Banking with Capital One Cafes
You can relax for awhile, enjoy a coffee while working on your laptop or engage with one of the Capital One Ambassadors on personal goals and financial inspirations! There is no pressure, it is a very laid back atmosphere.
“A really unique, comfortable, relaxing environment — not like your traditional bank”
I visited the Capital One Cafe in Denver and was pleasantly surprised with this new concept! The space is conveniently located downtown LoDo in the beautiful Triangle building by Union Station (1550 Wewatta St Denver, CO 80202). It is a very open design with plenty of space to work in peace or sip a latte with a friend. It was hip, cozy and comfortable.
While I was there I learned some things about the Capital One Cafe concept:
- Capital One Ambassadors are more than just financial advisors. They are trained life coaches ready to consult with you about what it is you seek in life – both financially and personally.
- Private meeting spaces with white boards, tables and chairs are available to anyone to use, non-profits getting first priority.
- You can speak to an associate and explore banking services or just take advantage of the free work spaces.
- Try out new digital and financial tools.
- Free Wi-Fi, free charging ports and fee-free ATMs.
- Peet’s® Coffee Bar is full service with coffee, tea, snacks and more. All the pastries are from local bakeries!
- If you have a Capital One Credit Card you get 1/2 off your purchase!

My Thoughts on Capital One Banking Reimagined & Capital One Cafes
While other banks are closing – Capital One has been reinventing! One part cafe,one part financial institution – this vision turned reality is genius!
In my opinion, Peet’s Coffee & Tea espresso bar, free wifi, spacious seating areas and private meeting rooms, are much more useful than a stuffy bank with tellers. These cafes are such a relaxing experience – all the comforts of the cafe combined with financial ambassadors on hand to help with banking needs! It’s unique, creative and smart.
Banking is back to life with Capital One Cafes – I am loving this concept!
