Denver is getting another Texas transplant this summer: Lustre Pearl is coming to River North.

BusinessDen reports that the rustic bar with two locations in Austin will open sometime this August.

This will be the first location husband-and-wife owners Chris Parker and Bridget Dunlap will open outside of their home state. The pair signed a lease on 3,300 square feet, plus a 1,000-square-foot patio, at 1315 26th St. back in December. That’s the corner 26th and Walnut Street, right next door to First Draft Taproom & Kitchen.

“We like areas that are very walkable and have a little art twist to them,” Parker told BusinessDen. “You’ve got anything from artist types to young professionals to more established corporate people. It all meshed together with what we are looking for.”

The Denver location will be pretty similar to the Austin spots, including some space for live music, but the owners say it’ll have special Denver touches.
