A turnkey restaurant space is currently available in the heart of the Central Business District at 605 Texas Street.

Exterior view of 605 Texas Street.

The space, which was most recently home to Shababy’s Cajun Cooking, was sadly vacated after medical issues forced Shababy’s popular Mandy and husband and helper Mike to slow down and take a breath. (We wish them the best in their retirement- downtown loved them and their little Cajun restaurant). For many years prior, the space was home to 4J’s Java and more.

First floor counter, cooler, prep and serving area and seating.

The two-level space features what is basically a serving counter area on the first floor and additional seating and a full kitchen on the second floor. There are bathrooms on both levels and a dumbwaiter to send food up and down.

Second floor bar area & kitchen, dumbwaiter to the right.

The space is roughly 3200 square feet and can be used for a variety of purposes ranging from restaurant to bar to retail to a mixture of those uses. A nightclub is NOT permitted in this zoning classification.

Upstairs has a great view of Texas Street.

The roughly 3200SF building is leasing for $11.25PSF (annually), or $3000 per month. The building sits right in the heart of it all, just steps from the Caddo Parish Courthouse and in the same block as Robinson Film Center, the Lofts at 624 and Southern University’s Metro campus.

605 Texas Street is in the heart of downtown’s main promenade.

No parking comes with the building, but customers have access to ample on-street and lot parking. The Downtown Development Authority can assist in finding off-street parking options for future business employees and can also help with any request for outdoor patio seating space.

Realtor Trent Siskron is representing the space; you can call him to arrange a tour.
