There will soon be a new multi-purpose event space in Houston. Slated to open Summer 2015, The Dunlavy will be a private event and dining space overlooking the banks of Buffalo Bayou and Lost Lake at the western end of Buffalo Bayou Park.
The Dunlavy will showcase the different cuisines of the Clark Cooper restaurants including Ibiza Food & Wine Bar, Brasserie 19, Coppa Ristorante, Coppa Osteria and Punk's Simple Southern Food.
The 160-acre Buffalo Bayou Park stretches from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street and represents one of the largest urban greenway initiatives in the country right now. Construction on the $58 million renovation, headed by the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, includes destinations like Lost Lake and The Water Works visitor center, as well as new trails, gardens, two pedestrian bridges, a dog park and a nature playground.
Grab and Go @ The Dunlavy will provide counter service breakfast and lunch seven days a week. Additionally, the building will house a park visitor center and a canoe and kayak rental facility, operated by Buffalo Bayou Partnership.
The 3,800 square foot indoor space will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, gallery-like interiors and a large wraparound 850 square foot outdoor patio.
Patrons booking The Dunlavy can choose menus from any of the Clark Cooper Concept restaurants or have the culinary team create custom menus and wine pairings. The Dunlavy is also expected to become the setting for high-profile events, such as product launches, art installations, pop-up retail, weddings, gallery show and filmmaking.
