One legal question here regarding food being brought in from other places. I know the TABC does not allow liquor to be brought into an establishment that already sells alcohol. Does the Houston/Harris County Health Department allow food to be brough ...

Erick, Thanks again. As for the legal side, my lawyer gave me an example like this. If you get takeout food and eat it at home, who is liable? You or the preparer? It will be the preparer. Thanks again, Team Sunset

Who owns the building ? I think idea of a roof top Lounge is nice and it would be great to drink a martini in a cool lounge on a hot houston day and see the skyline.

Wayne, Thanks for the comment. I too can't wait until that happens. The owner of the building is from New Mexico. Thanks, Team Sunset

I am still concerned about the "food". Yes, many people love to drink, but appetizers or other small types of food really accent a bar. Waiting for deliveries from local establishments seems a "turnoff" to me? Have you looked at this "concept" of ...

I am Interested in this as well. We shall see what Dominic’s response is for a vision for bar snacks but here in Houston, the Owl Bar on Alabama has partnered with a pizza place across the street (Bollo) and it seems to work quite well and their pizz ...

Erick, Thanks for your concern. We will offer some chips or another closed packaged snack for consumption. The days of leaving peanuts and Chex mix out on the bar are over. People are very germ conscious in today's age. It's important to emph ...

I like this rooftop opportunity/concept. But am also curious to see the answers to several of the questions below: Is the ground-floor tenant complimentary (or at least not a negative)? What is the prospect for live music (I would think something aco ...

James, Hopefully, we answered your concerns in the previous questions about the roof, and tenants. As for live music, we have the stage set up along the north wall. The music "vibe" will be determined by the artists that night, whether it's ...

I believe this is a great idea. In the late 90s early 2000s I remember going to Scott Gertner's Rooftop Lounge and Jazz Bar year round. Many times it was packed to capacity. The quality of live music was the key and I believe on Thursday nights they ...

Hello - who is the ground floor tenant(s) of the building? Does it compliment the business you are promoting? What is the seating capacity of the venue? Have you considered a retractable roof for the deck? Up here in Pittsburgh we have a couple o ...

Gentleman- I don’t see an answer to Deepish’s question about “lessons learned from your last failed venture”. I think producing an answer may be critical to receiving your funding. Please elaborate.

Guys concept looks great and don’t want to be a negative nelly. Just want to make sure I am clear as to your plans. You note that there are only a few rooftop bars in Houston. One reason for this is the heat does not make it conducive to sit outside ...

George, Thank you for your question and concerns. Being in Houston for over decade you bring up a very valid point. As for the old saying that goes, "you don't like the weather here, wait 10 minutes." With that in mind we do have plans to ...

Your previous venture, Hops meet Barley, went out of business in July 2018. Can you explain what happened with that business and what you learned from then?

Deepesh, Thank you for your question. When I sold Hops Meet Barley in October, it showed a profit. What happened after I left the company, I cannot tell exactly, because I was not involved with it. What I know for sure is, that being in the ...

A few questions: if this is a high-end martini bar why are the anticipated revenue off of wine and liquor sales so much lower than beer sales? 211k (draft beer + bottled beer) vs 183k (liquor + wine) according to year 1 estimates. My concern is that ...

Jacob, Thank you for your comment and interest in Sunset. We are trying to reach the $150,000 mark, the rest of the funding is coming from me as the only shareholder, and another $250,000 is coming from the owner of the building as part of th ...
