Industry Alley opened last evening to a rousing crowd that included the elite of the bartending community, plus plenty of civilian supports wishing to kick off the bar opened by Charlie Papaceno.
We were on the scene to check out the toddling time which included time at the pool tables, dart board and a smattering of retro video games that filled the large back room of Industry Alley. Consider this an adult playground with all the accouterments, including fine cocktails and brews. The new bar does not have a kitchen in house, so takeaway from neighboring restaurants is acceptable. In a show of support Zalat sent out a fleet of pizzas for the crowd to enjoy which was much appreciated.
Papeceno told craveDFW that he will continue to soft open Wednesday from 4pm to 2am as a soft opening to put his fresh staff to the test. The public is invited.
Industry Alley is located at 1713 South Lamar in the bustling Cedars area of Dallas. We captured some scenes of the opening day.
