The iconic Paris on the Platte space at 1553 Platte Street is now officially home to two new sister concepts: Carbon Beverage Cafe and Habit Doughnut Dispensary. No, there is no pot in the doughnuts and yes, the cafe has caffeinated and alcoholic beverages alike.

Carbon Beverage Cafe has a sleek, urban atmosphere with exposed brick and wall hangings from the Paris on the Platte generation. A sexy system of 18 taps behind the bar is the focal point of the energetic space, and features Method cold brew coffee, Happy Leaf kombucha, cocktails, wines, and beer- all on tap.

Order one of the signature cocktails (choose from Earth, Wind, Fire, or Water) and tailor them as desired- add a kombucha float or maybe a fresh thyme garnish. You can choose from a variety of house-made syrups and make your own soda at the "carbonation station." This choose-your-own-adventure drink system has a cheeky, pop culture-inspired food menu counterpart featuring #bowls (i.e. hash bowls) like green eggs and hash as well as pizza in a cup. Sandwiches and munchies like the Wu Tang tots are designed to be fun, fast, and satiating. Don't feel like sticking around? Pick up something from the daily selection of grab-n-go items up front.

Just next door, Habit Doughnut Dispensary has an entirely different buzz and energy to it. The neon graffitied setting boasts hip-hop-like energy interrupted only by the smell of brioche dough. The "Dispenser's Dozen" is six doughnuts of your choice and six items from the bodega wall. Signature doughnuts, like the Blazed (malted milk glaze, and hand torched brûlée), are available all day, every day. Seasonal doughnuts and daily specials come and go as the inspiration of the pastry chefs dictates. Doughnuts asides, Habit also offers a selection of random necessities like ibuprofen, lighters, zig-zags, condoms, candy, and cigarettes in eye-catching candy jars.

Opening hours for these fun new sister concepts in LoHi will be 6 a.m. until it slows down at night, every day of the week.
