Calling all animal lovers and their furry four-legged friends, Houston is home to a new doggie destination. Katy’s LaCenterra center in Cinco Ranch is welcoming PUCCI Café & Pet Boutique this November.
The concept began with Maria and Bobby Davidson’s love for the duo's multiple rescued dogs, and after making several trips to Europe, where pet-friendly cafes are common, the Davidson’s were inspired to finally create their own. "Dog cafes in Europe are simply part of their lifestyle. It seemed like an obvious need for pet lovers in our community," they said in a press release. "We wanted a space that was open late that felt luxurious and high-end where you can enjoy time with your dog. After working a long day, sometimes our dogs end up being an afterthought, and we want to change that."
The interiors of the cafe were carefully crafted by Houston-based Gin Design Group, using rich textures in layers of lighting and greenery, giving it an upscale environment and going back to its European-inspired roots.
As for the gourmet offerings, the cafe has dog treats from their up-scale dog bakery along with high-quality third wave coffees, teas, pastries, charcuterie boards, wine, champagne, and specialty beer for owners. All of these delectable offerings come complete with an enjoyable night listening to live entertainment on the cafe’s 2,000 square foot patio. The outside area also includes a fenced-in dog park for your pooch to roam freely. To top it all off, PUCCI donates a portion of all its proceeds to dog rescues in the community.
The pet boutique and cafe committed themselves to offering dog spa products that are free of genetically modified organisms and harsh chemicals. And for the spoiled-rotten pets, the boutique boasts luxurious dog accessories imported from countries all across the globe, such as sequined collars, pet jewelry, exclusive dog carriers, and high-end clothing.
"We’re excited to bring this one-of-a-kind destination to the area for people to unwind and enjoy time with their dogs," said Maria.
PUCCI Café & Pet Boutique is located at 23501 Cinco Ranch Boulevard, Suite N200. No opening date has been set. For more information visit their website.
