El Paso has a new coffee shop brewing around the corner in Downtown.
“Just the whole downtown renovation I think that was a big reason why we decided to come Downtown. It just has that vibe and energy that we were looking for,” Owner Pamela Azaeta told KTSM.
District Coffee shop is now open and located on the corner of Stanton and Texas Ave.
It’s part of the Sun City’s historic International Building, and is surrounded by renovations such as the Aloft Hotel and the El Paso Housing Authority project.
“I think Downtown is a great investment and I use that word very specifically because Downtown is changing, it’s evolving and really growing,” Rudy Vasquez from the Downtown Management District said.
Azaeta tells KTSM, after two years of planning for District, she’s excited to serve El Pasoans their favorite cup of coffee.
“The name District itself is initially one district because downtown is divided into different districts and we just thought of one district to unify all those districts and have your coffee shop here,” she explained.
The Downtown Management District encourages businesses both big and small to look at their options when deciding where to set up shop.
“Get in where you can get a good deal because a lot of these business are looking at what’s around them. So, you have things that sort of would help your business and create a synergy in terms of the supply and demand,” Vasquez said.
District’s owner invites the community to experience their new shop and be a part of the revitalization in Downtown.
“It was just a big risk. A big adventure and journey that we just decided to move forward with. Thankfully we’re here,” Azaeta said.
District Coffee is open from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. excluding Sundays.
