Making Dallas Even Better

Yet Another Reason To Get Excited About The Joule Hotel Expansion

(Fingers crossed that these Fort Standard canisters end up on the shelves at Weekend.)


I frequently lament (to anyone within earshot) Dallas’ lack of a shop like Austin’s Spartan or The Foundry in Minneapolis — stores that cut through the clutter and stock highly edited collections of beautiful, artful, handcrafted things that feel anything but “crafty.” So I was hopeful when I read that TenOverSix is co-opening Weekend Coffee sometime in mid-March as part of the Joule Hotel expansion.

Yes, I realize a coffee shop isn’t the same as a store, but hang with me here… According to an interview with Joe Cole, president and co-owner of TenOverSix on their blog, Weekend will boast more than just cups of joe (albeit Victrola Coffee’s excellent cups of joe). Per Cole, “Rounding out the coffee program is a tight retail mix and some amazing baked goods. Given our retail background, we couldn’t help but come up with something to merchandise… We’ll also be adding great foodie-inspired items to the mix, including aprons by Marfa-based designer Constance Holt (also part of the Garza team who designed our bar stools); ceramics from The Netherlands’ Jansen + Co., which we’ll also be using in-house; some cool stuff from Brooklyn-based Fort Standard and amazing foodie magazines like Gather, Kinfolk, etc.”

Bring on the Weekend…

  • I’m excited about ALL things Joule expansion. Can’t wait.
