Popular community café Studio 2 announced it is closing shop at 46th & Bryant in the wake of co-owner David Hussman’s death.

“Studio 2 Café is closed indefinitely to allow our family space and time to grieve the passing of our beloved David,” read a sign posted on the door in February. “Thank you for your patronage and friendships. We are honored to have gotten to know you, to have served you as our guests and to have the opportunity to build community in our little part of the world.”

Hussman, who co-founded the café with Andrien Thomas in 2014, died Aug. 18 from lung cancer. He was 56.

In addition to co-owning Studio 2, Hussman was the founder of DevJam, a tech company and was a guitarist in ’80s metal band Slave Raider.

Studio 2 was known for hosting hack-a-thons, community jam sessions and a number of neighborhood events.
