The Trick Dog (3010 20th St.) bar from the Bon Vivants crew looks to be opening soon, and it will do so without The Parlour by Humphry Slocombe at its side, as originally intended. The new and unexpected neighbor is Sightglass Coffee, who will move into the space originally slated to be a bakery and cafe project from ice cream titans Jake Godby and Sean Vahey. Vahey says the Parlour idea has been shelved altogether, and an official statement about this development follows.
"In the three years since Humphry Slocombe came up with The Parlour concept/project, the Humphry Slocombe business has grown and evolved. Currently, we find ourselves excited to expand the Humphry Slocombe brand and have decided to focus on the opportunities we have to do so versus pursuing an entirely new line of business with The Parlour. Accordingly, we're passing the space on to our good friends at Sightglass, who we feel will create a business that is incredibly additive to this unique neighborhood."
Vahey teases that there will be more HumpSlo news coming soon. In the meantime, the opening date for Sightglass on 20th Street is still TBA.
