At the east end of the lobby is what appears to be the sliced off front end of a MATA trolley mounted to the wall (complete with “Ride Free” signage). This looks good, ties in the immediate neighborhood and is quite unexpected in such a modern, sleek exterior.

Although I am not that impressed with Rustic as far as a venue and space. It was a great use for land temporarily and the city granted them a temporary allowance for it to happen. I imagine now that its a proven concept any landowner will want to charge them up the hilt to run something similar since the Rustic does sell a lot of alcohol according to the TABC records. Mutts is a little more unique and I could definitely see working to find them a location since their operation is quite small. Its a rather small building to house the kitchen and bar and then its a matter of a deck and fencing and staff. Rustic is a full-on restaurant and outdoor venue that in some form can really be recreated anywhere with the right mix.
I would even go as far as to say Barnett was trying to do the Rustic one better at Toyota Music Factory and did a bad job at capturing what the Rustic did capture with its atmosphere. I just don't think the Rustic needs accommodation through the city. Mutts does provide a dog park experience that the city hasn't captured that the West Village and many other neighborhoods would love to have. I can point to a dozen places I think Mutts would attract a customer base and the neighborhood might welcome. Rustic is just another backyard bar with a decent menu and stage setup.

The notion that every square foot of uptown should be mid-rise apartments with/without ground floor retail , etc, is just boring to me.
“We are excited to open this lifestyle hotel in our own backyard and give guests, locals and out-of-towners alike, a true sense of Texas hospitality,” Alan Naul, founder of The Javelin Group, said in a press release.
The hotel itself will reflect Dallas culture, featuring local artwork, vintage bricks from McKinney Avenue and a refurbished section of the M-Line Trolley. The guest rooms, called “Just Right” rooms, will offer views of downtown Dallas, handcrafted furniture, cooling mattresses, Nespresso machines, walk-in showers and open closets.
Guests receive a welcome gift upon check in, pastries from nearby French bakery Bisous Bisous. Each morning, they can order an artisanal breakfast at Canopy Central Café or arrange for a grab-and-go breakfast bag to be delivered to their room. Each evening, the rooftop lounge, Upside, will host a tasting of craft and local beers, wine and cocktails. Featured breweries will include Deep Ellum Brewery, Community Brewery and Lakewood Brewery.
The Dallas Uptown hotel is also participating in the brand’s Paws in the Neighborhood initiative, a partnership with pet product manufacturer Planet Dog. Each canine guest will receive a dog bed and a “Paws in the Neighborhood Welcome Gift” with an Orbee ball, dog treats and pick-up bags.
