Brewster Street Ice House Southside to Open in June
A new Brewster Street Ice House is nearing completion and should open on Corpus Christi’s Southside in June, three months earlier than originally planned. The new restaurant at 5550 Holly Road near Staples Street will offer a full menu and play areas for kids and adults but no live music.
At 7,000 square feet, the new venue is dwarfed by the original location at 1724 N. Tancahua St., which is 12,000 square feet. It will be too small for a live venue, according to developer and primary partner Bill Durrill, who told reporters the plan is to offer another eatery on the Southside but not to compete with the live music scene downtown. Also, the location is too close to residential homes for loud music.
Catering to families, Brewster Street Southside will have a larger playground and outdoor deck than the one downtown. An additional play area for adults will feature washers, cornhole, and other games.
Brewster Street Icehouse downtown celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016. It was built in 1932 by the Union Pacific Railroad. Yellow Freight Distribution later moved in. A sign from that company still remains, hanging near the women’s restroom.
