There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.
The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster. Continue reading

When the investors of Standard Pour decided to turn over the keys to their bar, the name that topped the list to sell to was Dallas’ perennial barman, Eddie “Lucky” Campbell. His own bar is situated just feet down the road, the very successful, but tiny, Parliament. The actual transaction took place January 1st of this new year and Campbell has big ideas to take the extremely popular uptown restaurant/ bar to the next level.
The thrust of these ideas begin with happy hour, something Campbell is quite good at. Look for a new happy hour cocktail menu that will no doubt tantalize and includes 13 new drinks, plus beer, wine and champagnes.
