The first is a restaurant and bar from This & That Concepts, the team behind High Fives, So & So's, and the Standard Pour. They'll open a 4,232-square-foot restaurant and bar, plus a 2,600-square-foot, second-floor covered patio overlooking Victory Plaza and Victory Park Lane, at the northwest corner of Victory Park Lane across from the W Dallas – Victory Hotel.
The second is a massive restaurant and entertainment complex going into the space previously occupied by dearly departed Nove and N9NE. It's from 8020 Hospitality, the Elias Pope company that owns HG Sply Co., and Brooke Humphries, owner of Barcadia. The complex will extend 24,022 square feet, occupying the entire ground floor of the west Victory Plaza building.
The third is a bar and tavern from Humphries located in an "out-of-the-box" space inside the parking garage on Victory Avenue, across from the Arpeggio apartments. It'll have 2,466 square feet plus a 1,179-square-foot covered patio. Humphries' portfolio includes Barcadia, Beauty Bar, Mudsmith, It’ll Do Club, and Pints & Quarts.
Wow, all three restaurants are coming from people with solid track records. Honestly, I would have been happy with almost any three restaurants given the current state of VP, but three restaurants of this caliber is a great sign. Not to mention these three won't be too terribly far from the successful Happiest Hour.
