Neighbors will soon have a place to go when they’re craving cocktails and dim sum late at night.

Neon Kitten is set to open Oct. 1 in Deep Ellum in the former Beauty Bar space.

The spot, created by Bhuvanesh “Bob” Khanna, will have a cocktail lounge and patio area and offer dine-in and take-out options.

Neon Kitten’s menu was inspired by all the places Khanna has lived and worked, including Hawaii, where dim sum was available at almost any time and Japanese spirits were commonly used in drinks.

Food options range in price from $6-$12 and include prawn and pork siu mai, shrimp har gau and mushroom dumplings. Cocktails on tap cost $12-$13, and craft cocktails are $15-$20.

Neon Kitten will be located at 2805 Main St. Hours are 5 p.m.-midnight Wednesday-Thursday, 5 p.m.-1 a.m. Friday-Saturday and 5-10 p.m. Sunday. Reservations are recommended.
