The recent resurgence of Addison can be witnessed in the new developments of many well-loved destinations and new concepts converging on Belt Line Road and the Dallas North Tollway. One of the first and most popular outdoor shopping districts, Village on the Parkway, will now host another original, Sidecar Social (5100 Belt Line Road, Suite 401, 75254, 214.272.3950), a 20,000-square foot, curated, social lounge experience from BoomerJack’s Founder Brent Tipps, opening August 19, 2019.
“We all want a place to go to hang out, relax, and connect with our friends and new people,” said Tipps. “Everything about Sidecar Social is designed around that. From shareable plates to free games, we built a place you can bring a friend to and go from dinner and drinks to games and music — you feel like you don’t want to leave.”
Sidecar Social, with the tagline of “Go. All. Out.,” will feature a full spectrum of interactive attractions geared for adult mixing and mingling in a modern industrial, yet warm and refined setting. Guests will be able to choose from daily dining provided by its scratch kitchen while socializing over craft cocktails in one of Sidecar Social’s spacious bars. Additionally, guests can expect friendly competition with free classic games, private karaoke, multiple live music stages, and prime game-watching on 18-foot televisions and on a massive tree-shaded patio with flat screens.
Rotating, shareable menu highlights will include Adult Mac N Cheese, Grilled Cauliflower Steak, Charred Corn Guacamole, Smoked Burnt End Nachos, and Wood-Oven Grilled Flatbreads. On the lighter side, Sidecar Social will offer artisan salads and grilled kabobs. Featured sandwiches will include the Nashville Hot, Braised Short Rib French Dip and Akaushi Ground Beef Burger with Chimichurri Sauce while entrees will consist of Chicken and Waffles, Grilled Lemon Dill Salmon, Hanger Steak, and more.
Two main bars will serve guests—one horseshoe bar and convivial lounge area off the main dining room with views of the kitchen and guests, and a giant, rectangular bar in the primary two-story showroom between three enormous 18-foot televisions, two bocce courts, shuffleboard, and generous banquettes with full views of live music stage. Guests will be able to enjoy delicious craft cocktails such as the Elderflower Paloma to Strawberry Basil Bees Knees and Italian 76. Handcrafted classic cocktails will also be available. Upon opening, daily drink specials will include $5 craft cocktails on Tuesdays, $5 martinis on Wednesdays, half-price wine and happy hour drinks from open until 6 p.m. on weekdays.
Free, classic, indoor games for grownups will include a giant, eight-person foosball table, private ping-pong room, shuffleboard, bocce ball, pop-a-shot, corn hole and darts. Live entertainment acts are poised to take the stage every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday on a remote, retractable platform including acoustic acts, live dance bands and DJs. Additional staging areas on the patio and main dining room will be available to host DJs and acoustic acts. Local restaurant and live music industry veteran and General Manager Steve Richardson plans to bring the best acts from the regional music scene to Sidecar Social.
Décor and atmosphere will include high ceilings; an exhibition kitchen; wrought iron, brick, and genuine handcrafted wood accents; leaded-glass windows; modern wood and leather furnishings; and industrial lighting. Private karaoke rooms will overlook the second floor alongside a sumptuous lounge with great views of the music stage, dance floor, games, and centerpiece bar.
Just off to the right of the main entrance there will be an enormous, elevated, dog-friendly patio. The company took care to preserve the many trees providing shade to the patio and added additional weatherizing features to keep furry and human guests comfortable all year long.
Sidecar Social believes in giving back to the community and has chosen local organization Operation Kindness, the largest no-kill shelter in North Texas, to work with as a charity partner. Tentative events supporting the organization will include drives, fundraisers, and pet adoptions. Proceeds from a doggie entrée bowl, a menu item for four-legged guests, will benefit Operation Kindness.
