Sweet Bribery Is the Final Ingredient in Braun’s 19th St. Antique Store Remix

A recent tax filing reveals Sweet Bribery is the moniker of the corner ice cream shop Braun Enterprises has been showing in its site plan for 250 W. 19th St. without daring to speak its name. It’s the last of the 5 new tenants that the developer’s been ushering into the former Chippendale Eastlake Antiques store since buying it in 2015. (One of which — an ice cream offshoot of Lee’s Fried Chicken & Donuts called Lee’s Creamery — appears no longer bound for the building.) Pictured above is the western flank it’d occupy, which backs up to Urban Float sensory deprivation spa’s entrance off Rutland St.

Next door to the creamery, clothing stores Mary & Moss and Proper are already doing business along 19th St.:


And though it isn’t visible in the photo above, Alice Blue has been feeding people since last summer in the yellow portion of the building and the alley adjacent to it — both of which previously housed Shade.

  • Cuz we needed more ice cream shops in the Heights. . . . .

    Fat Cat, Menchie’s, Gelazzi, Rita’s, Cloud 10, Dolce Neve, Tampico’s and a bunch more all around the outer Heights. It’s the Mattress store business model, one every other block.

  • I just went into a float tank here in SD. Couldn’t really ‘zone out’ as my neck kept being sore.

  • Can Braun stop the annual crepe murder of those poor trees on Rutland?

  • Not everyone has a car to get to these places. It will offer different type than any of the other ice cream shops❣️
    I am, personally, looking forward to it’s arrival!

  • Yes, stop the Crepe Murder!

  • In all fairness, the crepe myrtles are right under a low hanging set of power lines. That is why the are trimmed like that.

    I am also tempted to jump on the “too many _____ in the Heights” bandwagon. But every time I think we are saturated with coffee shops, desert shops, burgers or pizza, I go out and find these places packed with people. 19th St. is going to add four restaurants at the Waterworks development. Alliance is building a 309 unit apartment complex down the street with another rumored for where the Chase bank building is. 19th St will become much more active at night especially when there is a show at the theater. So, I see no reason why this place can’t pack them in.
