Austin-style bar in Dallas has patio, skinny cocktails, all-day food
Formerly a revolving door of clubs, 6th Street-Uptown is going for a new vibe.
6th Street is situated at Routh Street and Cedar Springs Road, on the property that once housed Manhattan Bar, Zodiac, and Central Park – late-night clubs whose concepts didn’t last. 6th Street will be squarely a bar, said owner Celia Lopez. “Before, it was a club scene. That’s the big difference,” she said.
6th Street will serve brunch on the weekends, with items like eggs benedict, chicken & waffles, and peanut butter & banana French toast on the menu. Prices for brunch range from $8-14.
The space was renovated, with garage doors on the front of the bar which open up to a patio. “It’s great for people who just pop on in,” said spokesperson Catherine Shuler. Inside the downstairs area are two bars with dark woods, brick wall accents, and steel. The upstairs has one bar with copper accents, and bands will occasionally play up there.
The regular menu includes sandwiches like pulled pork, a fried Reuben, and a crab BLT. They also have burgers and an appetizer menu with flat breads, quesadillas, and wings. For those watching their weight, the “6th Street Skinnies” are six cocktails under 100 calories.
The official opening is Thursday, September 13 from 6-8 p.m., but the bar is already open. Hours are 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
“I love the vibe of the area,” said Lopez, who has lived in Dallas for 16 years. “It’s young, hip, and has people who know what they want.”
