Brasil

  • 2604 Dunlavy St.
    Houston TX 77006
  • Neighborhood:Montrose
  • Phone: 713-528-1993

Artsy types, poetry buffs and music lovers from all walks of life count this warm coffeehouse as a favorite.

Contemporary art by local artisans adorns the walls, and tiny metal tables with South American Kokopelli-type creatures carved into the tops line a performance area, with larger tables to accommodate larger groups. Brasil frequently hosts musicians of all persuasions, from fusion jazz to experimental noise to ambient grooves. You might be able to catch a traveling poetry slam team or a group of local poets and writers giving a public reading.

If you get a yen for refreshments during the entertainment, Brasil boasts a wide selection of coffee, wine, beer, soft drinks and herbal teas. You can also order pizza, sandwiches or Brasil's spinach quiche, a treat to die for.

Expect to park a street or two away in the surrounding Montrose neighborhood most nights, as Brasil has no designated parking.
