     History
    Sunset Coffee Building was a building that was turned into one of Houston's first psychedelic nightclubs in the 1960's called Love Street Light Circus.

    Love Street was a popular, although, short-lived music venue located in downtown on Allen's Bayou. It was small with a capacity of under 200. It wasn't too fancy, but had a lot of great psychedelic music with mostly local bands like the 13th Floor Elevators and the Moving Sidewalks performing there regularly. Sometimes a big artist that played the Coliseum would walk over and jam with the locals after their concerts. It was rumored that Hendrix himself stopped by after his concert and jammed with Billy Gibbons.

     Future Plans
    The "building" is going to become a coffee shop and kayak rental store for the Buffalo Bayou running behind it.
