Two trendy California-based restaurants are planning to open in Tampa’s Westshore Marina District early next year.

Westshore Marina District developer BTI Partners told the Tampa Bay Business Journal DRNK and Qwench will open under one roof in early 2020. The combined facility is the first of its kind in the state and will occupy 1200 sq. feet of the Westshore Marina District outdoor retail center, reports the Journal.

The brands exists separately under the same ownership, but have joined forces under one roof in recent years to provide customers outside their L.A. home with a multifaceted millennial-aimed experience.

“Tampa Bay residents love to try new concepts and DRNK and QWENCH fits nicely with our goal of creating a unique and vibrant community for Westshore Marina District and surrounding residents,” Noah Breakstone, CEO and Managing Partner of BTI Partners, said in a statement.

Organic and fair trade coffees and teas, as well as breakfast and lunch options will be served under the DRNK banner, while Qwench will be blending up raw juices, smoothies and acai bowls on their side.
