Personal Growth Through Unique Experiences

Appropriated Dragon Dim Sum is found atop the Pagoda inside Black Rock French Quarter. Founded is 1822 to house the migrant workers constructing the Black Rock Railroad, Appropriated Dragon serves as a community center, dim sum hall, dance hall and all around spectacle of interactivity.

A simple principle is that to give is better than to receive, and thus the greatest part of gifting, is actually preparing the gift itself. Have you ever hand-made a gift for someone and just sat there beaming, waiting for them to open it so they could see how smart, clever, crafty and thoughtful you were?!

                       Each week we feature ceremonies with Parasol and Hand Fan Painting, Bring Some Share Some Dim Sum, Tea & Turbans, Silent Disco and much more.  Come join us!!
