About the Building
The Caravan of Dreams Building, best known for its unique geodesic dome on the rooftop, is a newer structure behind the original facades of two buildings created in the 1880s. Different facades give the impression that there are several buildings along the length of the block.
The principal tenant is Reata at Sundance Square, famous for its “cowboy cuisine.” It occupies much of the ground floor, as well as the rooftop patio, grotto bar, and geodesic dome. Paciugo Gelato and Caffé is also on the ground floor.
Four Day Weekend, a well-known improvisational comedy troupe, performs in the 212-seat theater on the second floor.
Etta’s Place, a well-appointed bed and breakfast, offers ten suites – each named for a member of Butch Cassidy’s Hole-in-Wall Gang or his female companion.
Caravan of Dreams, which opened in 1983, was a top jazz and music venue known for its astounding acoustics and comfortable ambience. The venue opened with performances by William Burroughs and Ornette Coleman, and over the years hosted artists ranging from Dizzy Gillespie and Herbie Hancock to Lyle Lovett and T-Bone Burnett.
