Raleigh, N.C. — A specialty coffee shop, premium tea house and sake bar has announced plans to open in downtown Raleigh next summer.
Heirloom Brewshop will be located in The Dillion, a mix-used development being constructed in the warehouse district. The development includes an 18-story office tower with retail space and two six-story apartment buildings. It will take up an entire city block bound by S. West Street, W. Martin Street, S. Harrington Street and W. Hargett Street.
Heirloom Brewshop will be locally owned and operated by husband and wife team and North Carolina natives, Chuan Tsay and Anna Phommavong, who spent weeks traveling throughout Asia doing research for the shop.
Heirloom Brewshop will offer premium coffee, tea and sake as well as an Asian-inspired food menu. Besides pour-over coffees, the restaurant is also planning to introduce a wide array of brew methods and concoctions.
Late last month, national retailer Urban Outfitters announced it would be opening on the ground level of The Dillon. The space is expected to open in summer 2018.
