The Python Twisted framework may be of use to you.  It's got a very
steep learning curve, but it's fairly easy to change the underlying byte
transport for any protocol they have implemented. In fact in the Twisted
docs, they show a web client accessing an HTTP server over a unix socket
(scroll down to the bottom of the page):

They show a client connecting to a Docker server which is speaking HTTP
over a unix socket.

Twisted is very powerful and flexible, and event-driven.
