Bol Hospitality has numerous concepts open around South Florida, including their namesake Bōl Restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood.

Soulful Steep

A new multi-faceted tea room and light bites concept is moving into Pompano Beach, according to co-owner Christina Abresch. The Soulful Steep will have a bohemian and rustic atmosphere with over 50 teas and great, locally roasted coffee. In addition, they will serve locally baked goods and small bites.

The Soulful Steep will also have a retail area, selling locally made goods and crafts, like candles, clothing, and more. Also, patrons will be able to relax in the salt cave, which will feature tens of thousands of pounds of salt to relax and recharge in.

Abresch estimates opening during the fourth of July weekend, but that is dependent on the city's speed in approving licensing and permits, she said.
