A Concrete Rose celebrates its first year of business in October
Airdate: September 13th, 2023
Evita Colon and Solise White are the proud owners and operators of A Concrete Rose Book-bar and Micro-Winery! A Concrete Rose merges a bookstore, micro-winery and live entertainment venue under one roof; a book bar but so much more! The bookstore will feature books and art created by authors and artists of the African diaspora providing the community with the opportunity to learn about different cultures through the immersion of literature and art. They aim to provide the community with a place to freely express themselves and showcase their work on a regular basis. The inclusion of wine intersects a sophisticated experience with a casual experience giving our space a unpretentious vibe for all to enjoy. Their vision is to establish a passion and appreciation for culture, literature and the arts through the wine bar and bookstore. A Concrete Rose serves as a staple of growth and the merging of ideas in the community by providing a safe space for all to feel welcome. In celebrating and amplifying the stories of people of the African Diaspora, they hope to ignite conversations and actions that will positively change the dynamic of the relationships we have with others.
