The Flat, a music venue and upscale, neighborhood lounge, opens a little bit early on Sundays to serve up brunch with a beat.
"Everyone wants to do something on Sunday mornings," manager Jasmine Richardson. "They just don't know what to do. At the Flat, its not just about having brunch its about having great food, meeting your friends on a Sunday, having a fun time and also listening to good music."
Richardson said offering a simple menu made the most sense. There are three items to choose from. A Caprese-style waffle sandwich pairs two fried eggs, mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh basil with a Belgian waffle, home fries and the option of adding bacon. For gluten-free diners, migas are a popular choice scrambled eggs melted with mozzarella cheese, topped with a fresh homemade pico de gallo.
"Since we are known for our pizzas, we do a breakfast pizza that is really delicious made with homemade tomato sauce, scrambled eggs, bacon, jalapenos and cheese," Richardson added.
The Flat serves up three different types of mimosas during brunch mixing a high quality Prosecco with either peach and orange, strawberry and pineapple or St. Germain and pineapple juice. The signature Bloody Mary made with Dripping Springs vodka is also a popular drink of choice on Sundays.
Richardson encourages guests to spend their Sundays out on the Flats patio. "It's a hidden gem in Houston," she said. "We just built an awesome new outdoor bar. We have different benches and seating areas, and its a very comfortable space."
DJ Analog Blitz spins all vinyl from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jazz by the Thomas Helton Sessions is featured from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Square wave Sundays begins at 8 p.m. featuring host resident DJ Mishka and Eddie on the sax.
"We have music from 1 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Sundays at the Flat, covering all different genres," Richardson said. "It's a place where you can lounge and it is a little bit of a party atmosphere because of the music."
