Remodeling is underway at the former Primary Purpose Alcoholics Anonymous meeting space, as Suite D of the strip center at 1203 W. 34th St. is converted into Slowpokes wine, beer, and coffee bar. The new business is busy building its digital presence as it rehabs its physical space just south of the corner with Alba Rd.
The bar’s Instagram page shows the above photo of a screenshot of a rendering of the suite under renovation, which depicts a large patio spreading out into what is currently the strip center’s parking lot. Photos of carpet removal and wishful floor-taping have also been posted as interior construction begins:
Adding to Houston’s growing list of TABC-licensed drink-while-you-launder coffee shops, Slowpokes will move in directly next to the Alba Washateria, itself in line with the Isabella Hair Salon and the Alba Food Mart down the row toward 34th. Across-the-street neighbors include the Pat H. Foley & Company funeral home and Houston Embalming Services, along with Texon Motors across Alba.
