Lasco Enterprises has signed a lease with the iconic Pearl Brewery to create The Boiler House Grill and Wine Garden. The new concept will be located in one of the brewery's original stand-alone structures that dates to the 1890s, a location sandwiched between the new Culinary Institute of America campus and the main brewery smokestacks, which are in the process of being converted into a boutique hotel.
The 6,000-square-foot Boiler House will integrate historic features including the vintage boilers into the design, which will be subject to approval by the San Antonio Historic Design and Review Commission. The plans include a spacious patio that will include "communal tables, a fire pit, and an area for live music performances," and indoors the space will be divided into a mezzanine with private dining rooms that overlook the bar and dining areas below.
"It's very unique and it's really been designed around the historic space," Lasco vice president Jonathan Horowitz says.
The menu is described as a "Texas ranch grill" with locally-focused steak, game and fish, plus a late-night menu of small communal-style plates.
The Boiler House is set to open in the spring of 2012 and will be Lasco's second concept in San Antonio, after the recently opened Max's Wine Dive.
