Fresh new coffee and cocktail shop opens doors in buzzy Allen Parkway apartment complex
An apartment complex near Allen Parkway has added an amenity that will benefit both residents and the larger community in the former of a coffee shop and cafe. SOSH Coffees + Cocktails has opened for coffee service with cocktails to follow later this summer.
Located in the Us Bayou Park, the 404-unit complex at 2221 W. Dallas St. that was formerly known as City Vista, SOSH — as in “social” — will feature coffees brewed with beans from Houston roaster Rivas Coffee Beans, including espresso beverages such as lattes and cappuccinos. It will also serve juices, charcuterie boards, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and pastries from Love Croissants.
Inside, the space features marble-top dining tables and wooden chairs. Works by local artists adorn the walls. The adjacent clubhouse and pool deck offers imported Italian furniture.
Opening a coffee shop is just one of the amenities that real estate development firm Vero Sade has brought to Us Bayou Park. As CultureMap has previously reported, the complex also offers events for residents, a 4,000-square-foot fitness center, a dog park, and two, resort-style pools.
Currently, SOSH is open from 7 am - 1 pm Tuesday - Sunday, but Vero Sade is seeking chefs and bartenders who want to use the space for pop-ups. The space offers dedicated parking spots for visitors as well as a bike rack.
“We envision SOSH as an inviting, dynamic place for neighbors, residential members and visitors to connect,” Vero Sade co-founder Dan Bassichis said in a statement. “And we are particularly excited about the specialty programming that will further engage and spotlight notable and up-and-coming talent in the hospitality community. SOSH is one of many elements that makes Us Bayou Park unique in the Houston multifamily space.”
