Pix Patisserie is ready to make its move. As previously reported, Pix owner Cheryl Wakerhauser will shutter the dessert spot's current two locations (on SE Division and N. Williams), moving all operations under one roof on E. Burnside. And with the move comes the addition of a new concept: Bar Vivant, a tapas bar influenced by classic San Sebastián offerings.
Per a press release, the 3,000-foot-space will be separated physically and conceptually by a wraparound racetrack bar (dubbed "Bar Pyrenees"), with a sit-down Pix café on one side, and a stand-up tapas bar experience on the other. The outdoor lot promises ample outdoor seating (with a covered deck) and a 13-meter pétanque court, and while the Pix menu remains similarly sweet (with a focus on macarons), Bar Vivant will highlight Spanish tapas (priced between $1-3 per bite), Jamón Ibérico sliced to order, and raw oysters provided by EaT: An Oyster Bar, all available until 2a.m. daily. The Champagne menu will feature 150 different pours, 27 kinds of sherry, and 140 still wines available by the bottle.
Pix Patisserie will officially shutter its two locations on July 30, in separate "Last Hurrah" parties that see drink specials and scaled-down pricing on all dessert (with anything leftover available for free at midnight).
