Brewster Street Icehouse opened its doors Friday, June 11th, 2006, becoming the centerpiece for the S.E.A. (Sports, Entertainment and Art) District! We opened on a historical weekend before a Corpus Christi Hooks’ home stand that featured Cy Young winner, Roger Clemens, pitching a rehab assignment before a record-setting crowd at Whataburger Field.
The Brewster Street Icehouse building was built in 1932 and was originally owned by Union Pacific Railroad and later occupied by Yellow Freight Distribution, whose sign still hangs next to the female restrooms.
The success of Concrete Street Amphitheater, the opening of the American Bank Center and Whataburger Field, gave our partners the inspiration to open Brewster Street Icehouse. They wanted to create a place where folks could bring their families on game day, stay for a concert or take part in other art events. The partners, all being on the “young” side of middle age with small children, agreed to create a “family friendly” atmosphere for everyone to enjoy!
The award-winning Brewster Street Icehouse has become one of the best known establishments in Corpus Christi! Brewster Street is definitely the place to see and be seen. Here are some of our more well-known visitors: Governor Rick Perry, Nolan Ryan, Justin Timberlake, Lady Antebellum, Billy Bob Thornton and just about every Texas Country artist this great state has produced!
In the Spring of 2012, Hurricane Alley Waterpark opened its gates next door and the S.E.A. District continues to grow into the most prominent “family friendly” entertainment district in South Texas!
Brewster Street Icehouse is excited to be at the center of the S.E.A. District and we remain committed to being an establishment that everyone can be proud of.
