Local Favorite to Brew Up Java in New Information Center
The AT&T Performing Arts Center today announced that Dallas-based Pearl Cup Coffee will be the coffee vendor for the café space in its new Information Center, located in Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park. Pearl Cup Coffee will offer coffee and tea beverages – including its signature Pearl Latte™- along with light fare and pastries.
“Pearl Cup has established itself as a local favorite for coffee lovers,” said Doug Curtis, president and acting CEO of the Center. “It has a great reputation for quality and service and a strong commitment to the community. We are excited to have a locally owned company providing coffee in this very unique space.”
The Information Center, which will also house the Center’s main box office, is scheduled to open next month. When it opens, Pearl Cup Coffee will be the only coffee shop located inside the Dallas Arts District. It will serve audiences, visitors, artists, students and workers in the District.
“The Dallas Arts District is at the center of so many of the exciting things happening today in Pearl Cup’s hometown, so being in the heart of it all at the AT&T Performing Arts Center is the perfect fit,” said Rita Davis, Vice President of Pearl Cup Coffee.
Customers can enjoy their drinks at café tables and chairs in Sammons Park. The Center also provides free AT&T Wi-Fi, Ping-Pong and foosball tables. Customers can also enjoy the free Thursday afternoon Patio Sessions concerts in the spring and fall.
The glass-enclosed Information Center was designed by Foster + Partners of London, which also designed the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House and Annette Strauss Square. Lord Foster is a Pritzker Prize-winning architect. In addition to the box office and Pearl Cup Coffee, it will contain a visual presentation space created by AT&T.
Monday – Friday: Pearl Cup will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. or one hour after a performance in the Arts District.
Saturday – Sunday: Pearl Cup will open one hour before a matinee performance and two hours before an evening performance at the Center. It will close one hour after the performance.
Pearl Cup may also open for special events in the Dallas Arts District.
