A local benefactor gave this defunct brewhouse a fresh lease in recent years, building a “culinary village” around an outpost of the Culinary Institute of America.

A Letter from the Editor

The Grand Plan

The original idea behind the development of Pearl was to create a true neighborhood that is a culinary and cultural gathering place. In the last two years we have opened seven new restaurants, eight new retail locations and have completed 300-plus residential units at the Can Plant Apartments, which are now 100 percent occupied. Because Pearl is a living, breathing neighborhood, it offers both locals and visitors truly distinct San Antonio culture—from our twice weekly farmers market to our 15 chef-driven restaurants and our vibrant, all-local retail community, there is nothing else like it. Located along the Museum Reach, Pearl is a great jumping-off point for seeing the public art along River Walk, jogging or exploring the many museums and parks along the river.

Looking Forward

This year, we will open the doors to the Hotel Emma, a culinary-focused history-rich boutique hotel, located in the original Pearl brewhouse. The historic structure also houses Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery which serves Chef Jeff Balfour's modern take on Texas' cross-cultural cuisine that opened in April. The on-premise brewery offers a rotating array of original recipe, craft batch beers from Brewmeister, Les Locke.

As Spring fades and Summer takes hold we hope you’ll stay in touch with us as we get ready to announce some exciting events and special programming for our warmer months. Sign up for our newsletter and follow-us on social media to stay current.

See you on the lawn!
