Highland Park Village’s chic boutique expands with a cozy new tea room

A shop in Highland Park Village explodes: The Conservatory on Two in Dallas, from retail veteran Brian Bolke, unveils a major expansion, with much larger space and a new restaurant.

Called the Teak Tearoom, it will be a café open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday, serving classics like tuna melt and chicken tortilla soup, as well as new creations such as roast chicken tartine and chopped salad. Brian Bowl.

The teahouse will also serve cocktails named after Bolke’s favorite women in Dallas, as well as one named after Elizabeth, the store’s English Bulldog mascot.

According to a statement, the store is scheduled to open on February 3, while the Teak Tearoom will open on February 23.

The Conservatory first debuted in New York’s Hudson Yards in March 2019, with the breadth of categories of a department store – including women’s and men’s apparel and accessories, jewelry, apothecary , gifts and home.

The concept was designed to accommodate both brick and mortar and e-commerce, meaning you can buy in-store or buy online. He has a deal with Amazon Luxury, where he sells a small selection of apothecary products.

It represented a comeback for Bolke, who previously co-founded Forty Five Ten, which he left in 2017. After opening the original Conservatory in New York, he opened a spin-off in Highland Park Village in September 2019; it has now been renamed “Jewelry”. (A third location in Napa Valley closed during the pandemic.)

The smaller Conservatory on Two opened in May 2020 at 100 Highland Park Village on the second floor as a 4,000 square foot hybrid boutique gallery.

Now it will be more than double that: 9,000 square feet in a loft-like space with 32 floor-to-ceiling windows, providing natural light and city views. Bolke redesigned the space alongside Droese Raney, the architecture and interiors firm that designed the store in New York.

Designer brands include The Row, Gabriela Hearst, Rosetta Getty, Brandon Maxwell and Altuzarra. New Dallas exclusives include Alaïa, Courrèges, LaQuan Smith and Mugler, as well as new introductions Ashlyn, Duncan and Monot.

Sustainability-focused brands include Another Tomorrow, Maria McManus and shoes from Aera. Bolke, who has been a tenant of Highland Park Village since 1995, has embraced and implemented the principles of sustainability, slow fashion and shared economy since the conception of The Conservatory.

The men’s collection is particularly large with Berluti, Maison Margiela and Barena Venezia alongside contemporary brands like Ron Dorff, Sunspel and NN07. The store is also the only US retailer to carry Tanner Krolle and Callas Milano.

Additional lines include Sidney Garber, Eva Fehren and Marina B. in fine jewelry (exclusive to the Dallas Conservatory), Byredo, Diptyque, DS and Durga, and Edward Bess (all in apothecary).

Home lines include Georg Jensen, Skultuna and Lalique, as well as a Phaidon book library.

The store opening will be celebrated with a fitting fanfare that includes an installation by interior design star Alessandra Branca and a Spring 2022 Trunk Show by Adam Lippes.
