The latest opening in a run of turnover on Tennyson Street brings ice cream to the former Pearl Street Fitness at 41st Street.
There, High Point Creamery owners Erika Thomas and Chad Stutz are celebrating the opening of their third location in four years.
This one, just at the end of Tennyson’s busiest strip, was a no-brainer.
“I mean, why not? It’s such a great neighborhood,” Thomas said. “This neighborhood is exploding. There are so many great restaurants — Wayback just opened two doors down. There’s pedestrian traffic and all these families right here. There’s a real neighborhood around it, which is awesome. We’re just excited to be the neighborhood ice cream shop.”
Like the other High Point Creamery locations, the Berkeley shop will serve ice cream bombe cakes, jerk ice cream sodas, floats, milkshakes, malts and pints and five-scoop ice cream flights for a 5-7 p.m. happy hour Monday through Thursday. The flavor selection includes standards and a season rotation, as well as a few vegan flavors and sorbets.
The current selection of spring flavors, not including the standards, includes cheesecake, bananas and honey, coconut cherry crisp, dark chocolate with caramel, pineapple mint sorbet and violet and lime cookies.
Naturally, there are some — ahem — sweet opening day deals to take advantage of. The first 50 customers will get a free $10 gift card with their purchase and, from 4-6 p.m., buy-one, get-one pints, scoops and flights.
The Tennyson Street High Point Creamery will be open from 1 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, noon to 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday. Hours will be extended in the summer.
The other locations are at 215 S. Holly St. in Hilltop and the Denver Central Market, 2669 Larimer St., in Five Points.
