DSC06082by Steven Doyle

Look for the new reservation bar that is attached to the space that will soon become the Establishment to open this week. Brian Williams and Michael Martensen both hosted a sneak preview for friends and family this past Friday evening, and we were able to get a glimpse of the bar.

Currently the bar has no name and Martensen said they are still tweaking the logo. Rumor has it that the space might be named Bar Smyth, but that could change.     Continue reading

La Reve To Open Pozo Mercado In St John’s Wood Space

mercadoby Steven Doyle

From the guys at Sfuzzi and Standard Pour (La Reve Consultants) look for a new hot spot to open on McKinney in Uptown Dallas called Pozo Mercado . If you look in at the old St John’s Wood spot at 2908 Mckinney you will see that they are doing some fast work on the restaurant/ bar. The food will be farm-to-table, but not your normal fare. One of the terms I heard was Fresh Mex, but the terminology may change. Regardless, look for some fashion of Mexican food in the new spot.    Continue reading

Greenville Avenue’s British Invasion

As far as Dallas-area bars are concerned The Londoner is a decided staple, and with a brand new location on the Lower Greenville strip its legacy is cemented. This past Saturday night the bar was filled with the sound of Beatles cover band A Hard Day’s Night and cheers from spectators watching sports on big screen T.V.’s scattered about the place. Succulent Scottish eggs and other pub fare where delivered by the coconscious staff and bar expected at any of the five locations the Londoner has around Dallas.      Continue reading

I can envision myself on the patio now, devouring that delicious pizza and sipping the very strong cocktails.

There have been rumblings at the old Elbow Room as they make final preparations to re-open their doors. I can almost smell that incredible pizza and the slurpy good drinks as I envision my butt sitting on the covered portion of the back patio. You might recall we reported the closure back in early December.   Continue reading

Sunset Lounge In Full On Tiki Swing

DSC05217by Steven Doyle

The Sunset Lounge is now humming along at peak performance. We stopped in for a few cocktails during the grand opening Wednesday evening where everything was $3 making for a rather light bar tab even with a few food items thrown in for good measure. Sad you missed that deal? Fret not my fellow bar hound, everything is $3 during happy hour each day, so enjoy that if you will.

The cocktails are magnificent. Many are throw backs to your father’s generation where they sipped large and in charge cocktails that were stuffed with giant rasps of fruit and cute umbrellas. I love a good retro drink, and the zombie is well worth the order. Cautionary tale: you are only allowed two of these babies and they are deceivingly delicious and full of 151 proof rum.      Continue reading
