Described as a coffeehouse by day and caffeine-fueled bar by night, Ampersand is set to open in April at 3009 Bledsoe St. in the West Seventh Street area.

The 3,200-square-foot space is going into a vintage building. The space will have a modern interior with modular furniture. Large garage doors with windows will allow for natural lighting. Ampersand comes from hospitality group MRTD, which includes entrepreneur Reham Choudhury, who is an investor in multiple successful concepts in Dallas.

According to a news release from the group, during the day, Ampersand will function as a café with a menu of locally air-roasted coffee, specialty craft coffee and select coffee cocktails. The plan is to bring coffee roasting operations in house with a master roaster on staff. In the evenings, Ampersand will switch to a bar menu offering coffee-inspired cocktails and coffee-spirit pairings.

The menu will feature cocktails such as the Cold Fashioned, a spin on an old fashioned, infused with cold brew; the Ampersand Mule, a coffee-infused Moscow mule; a spiked vanilla bean latte; and a wine milkshake called the Amy Winehouse. Cocktails will be made with in-house infused liquors. Selected local beers and wines will also be available.

Choudhury, who has a family history in the coffee business, sees the endless opportunities of harmony between coffee and cocktails.

“I have wanted to create a concept like Ampersand for a long time. You may come in to meet someone for coffee but stay for the cocktails,” said Choudhury. “Both types of beverages are ways to connect friends, families, business contacts or even strangers.”

Ampersand will be open daily for coffee service 7 a.m.-6 p.m., and the bar will be open Thursday through Sunday 8 p.m.-2 a.m.

Ampersand is now hiring for approximately 25 part-time and full-time positions;

Broker on the deal was Dana Quisenberry with Trinity Partners Commercial Real Estate.
