St. John describes Capulet as “a space where people can come, hang out, grab a drink or coffee, and get a delicious healthy (or unhealthy) lunch.”

Capulet is located at 3014 Dauphine Street along with The Warehouse, a coworking/shared office space that opened in 2016.

The building is a restored 1800s cotton warehouse with 30-foot soaring ceilings with exposed brick. The dining room includes mezzanine seating and can host around 200 guests. The rooftop deck includes a wet bar and features a panoramic view of the city.
