Alcohol and caffeine lovers rejoice! Ampersand, a coffee shop by day, caffeine-fueled bar by night, will have its grand opening open in November at 3009 Bledsoe St. in the W. 7th district.
The celebration will include Polaroid cameras, a picture wall featuring customers’ photos, upbeat music, and a photo booth.
Ampersand will serve air-roasted coffee. Roasting coffee by air is known for making a smoother flavor profile than traditional roasting.
AMPM Concepts, the team behind Ampersand, has made being a part of the community one of its core values.
“We want to build a genuine connection with our customers and provide them with the best possible experience the moment they step foot through the door,” said Reham Choudhury, co-owner of Ampersand in a news release. “The way to do that is to relate to people on a human level and get to know who they are beyond their drink order.”
The beverage bar will serve single-origin coffees, blends (such as the Signature Ampersand Blend), espresso drinks, and teas. Cold brew coffee will be available via a Kyoto drip tower, which uses an intricate Japanese brewing method.
According to the release, in addition to coffee, Ampersand’s menu will feature cocktails with a coffee twist, such as:
— A Whole Latte Love (vanilla latte with vanilla vodka)
— Ampersand Mule (Moscow Mule with Ampersand’s cold brew)
— Cappucello (coffee-infused-tequila drink with a lemon twist)
— and Cold Fashioned (cold brew with whiskey)
Ampersand will offer a selection of syrups, like maple spice, and local honey to allow customers to customize their beverages. Additionally, Ampersand will locally source needs other than beverages. In fact, they will offer pastries and light bites from Stir Crazy Baked Goods.
Ampersand’s 3,200 square-foot space is focused on a modern look and was designed by Coevál in Dallas. Additionally, Brothersisterdesign, a local carpentry studio, custom designed natural wood elements for the space. A 400 square-foot patio will seat approximately 25 people outside.
Ampersand will open daily for coffee service at 7 a.m. and the bar will open Thursday through Saturday from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. For more information, please visit http://www.ampersandfw.com
