Pozo and Acme Social Club Closed *Update

pozoby Steven Doyle

We have a duo of reported closings in Dallas this week. First, Pozo is shuttered and is making way for an Uptown version of Three Sheets. This building is located at 2908 McKinney Avenue and is tucked between Shell Shack and Standard Pour.

Another closing is Acme Social Club, formerly Acme F&B, located at 4900 McKinney. Rumor has it they are set for remodel and possible rebranding. This location has been a struggle for all that have moved in, including Cretia’s, Toscana and Tiajuana Bar and Grill. Hopefully the next tenant will take advantage of the beautiful hidden bar located at the back top portion of this building. What a perfect speakeasy that would be.     Continue reading

Tonight Pozo Mercado opens its doors to entertain the dining and sipping set on McKinney Avenue. The new venture from La Reve, the same folks who run Sfuzzi and Standard Pour, has some really nice Mexican food set in the gorgeous old house that was formerly St John’s Wood. And late at night they rock that house with cool tunes and superb cocktails.

When looking to the cocktail menu, think Bryan McCullough from Standard Pour which is situated exactly next door to Pozo. As president of the Bartender’s Guild, he is one of the most respected and talented cocktailers in Dallas. Some amazing drinks are being poured at Pozo, along with a boozy flight of frozen drinks that are every bit as creamy as they are dreamy. Normally we would abstain from frozen drinks due to their inane ability to cause brain breeze, but also for their undesired lack of alcohol. Not the case here. Proceed with caution.   Continue reading

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

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
