Blush, a brunch spot and bakery, is the latest business to join the Southtown scene on South Alamo.

Driving the news: Husband-wife owners Tanya Benavides and Efren Moreno tell Axios they're planning an early March opening for Blush, pending final inspections.

Details: The 713 South Alamo property is split into two buildings. One side will house the dining area for the brunch service and the other will be the bakery.

Flashback: The property previously housed Jokesters, a comedy club. The bar opened in 2018 and closed in May.

Zoom in: Benavides calls the menu "elevated," drawing from her Mexican background and her husband's Puerto Rican culture.

  • The cocktail menu will feature fresh ingredients that rotate with the seasons.
  • The bakery will have a bright, vibrant atmosphere while the brunch space will be moodier, with darker wallpaper and antique touches, the owners say.

What they're saying: Blush is one of four new or upcoming businesses opening in Southtown.

  • Leche de Tigre, a Peruvian restaurant, is opening on Friday.
  • "We're just trying to be a part of the community and add to the coolness of the area and roll with Southtown," Moreno says.
