Downtown juice bar The Squeezery will soon be replaced by a new European-style aperitivo bar, In Plain Sight. No date has been given yet for the switch-up for the space at 612 Brazos Street, which is part of coworking space The Riveter Co.

In Plain Sight will serve coffee and rotating dishes. In terms of drinks, In Plain Sight will take inspiration from aperitivo (the Italian version of happy hour), featuring spritz cocktails and wine, with a specific focus on natural wine.

Like The Squeezery, In Plain Sight is operated by the same team behind adjacent speakeasy bar Here Nor There, which includes beverage director Terance Robson. The name is likely a contrast to Here Nor There, which does not have a published address, but is found in the same building. While the restaurant was announced with involvement from popular British chef Tom Anglesea of essential London new-wave wine bar/restaurant The Laughing Heart, his involvement has not been confirmed as of now.

The Squeezery and Here Nor There opened in April and June of 2018, respectively, with Here Nor There touted as a members-only cocktail bar (though it is currently still free) and The Squeezery serving grab-and-go dishes and vegan gelato bowls served in coconuts. The spots have undergone some changes, as original owner James Huertas left last year and the adjacent coworking space The Refinery closed and Riveter Co. took over.

Update 11:12 a.m.: This article has been updated to clarify that chef Tom Anglesea’s involvement has not been confirmed.
