Need a frosty cocktail or a caffeine jolt while shopping for your favorite CBD products? Wilda new lounge at 2121 N. Shepherd in the Heights bills itself as the first Texas outpost to combine hemp-infused products with a specialty cocktail and coffee program.

A project by Houston cousins ​​Adyson and Andrew Alvis, who operate Grinders Coffee Bar and Wild Dispensary at 5410 Kirby, recently opened Wild, their second concept, a Bali-inspired cocktail / coffee bar and dispensary for hemp products including gummies, rolls and tinctures. The coffee program, featuring locally roasted beans in partnership with Tenfold Coffee Co. in the Heights, offers specialty coffee drinks including a menu of CBD lattes as well as pastries from Koffeteria.

But the cocktail menu, created by Laurie Harvey and Kris Sowell of Ladies of Libation, might be Wild’s biggest draw. The cocktails include Flower Power (gin, butterfly pea flower, bergamot liqueur and lemon), Pineapple Express (mandarin vodka, hibiscus, pineapple, ginger and lime), and coffee libations such as Lucky Charms (coffee, Irish whiskey, Drambuie, honey and marshmallows). There are also drinks made with Wild’s hemp-infused elixirs as well as two frozen drinks both of which can be upgraded with booze or a hemp-based shot.

Wild’s design was inspired by the owners’ travels throughout Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and Mexico.

“We wanted to create a place that immediately transforms your emotions into a laid back and relaxing vibe. An experience that you cannot find anywhere else in Houston. ” co-founder Andrew Alvis said.

“We were looking to create a unique experience for our customers, while also being able to educate Houstonians on the healing properties of CBD,” co-founder Adyson Alvis said. “Wild brings a one-of-a-kind experience, whether you’re looking to grab a coffee or cocktails with friends or looking for a product to help with muscle pain or relaxation, we wanted to create a space where everyone has a unique and enjoyable experience unlike anywhere in Houston. “

Wild is open Sunday through Thursday 8 am to midnight, Friday and Saturday 8 am to 2 am; wildconcepts.com.
