Pearl at Commerce closes, may possibly re-open at Trinity Groves
Wouldn't be the first time for this bar to close and open again.
DALLAS Pearl at Commerce, the little jazz-blues bar at Commerce and Pearl, closed at the end of June, due to "continued parking issues, gun incidents, and general thuggery in the neighborhood," according to husband-and-wife owners Rick and Tracy Yost.
However, there's a chance the club will re-open at Trinity Groves, the new restaurant incubator project in West Dallas being spearheaded by restaurateur Phil Romano.
"Yes we are closed at Commerce Street," Tracy confirmed. "As for the new place, I am looking at a building there but nothing firm yet."
But in anticipation of a lease being signed, Yost has been drafting schematics of the new space with 4,000 square feet, a 15x20-foot stage, and a seating capacity of about 175.
The Yosts closed the bar once already in January 2011, then re-opened it in September. They've not been shy about voicing their frustration with the enforcement of parking in the lot next door and their disenchantment with the clientele of some of the bars in their neighborhood.
