While the restaurant has not been around as long as the building, it's still surrounded by history. The building was originally Pearl's Brewhouse and was built in 1894. It's a San Antonio landmark and has been for many years. After opening, the brewery went from nothing to the largest brewery in Texas by 1916. It survived Prohibition but did close down in 2001.
In 2002, the building was purchased by Silver Ventures and the property went through adaptation and renovations. However, the charm and history of the building were preserved as the culinary and cultural village was created.
