It sure is lively there ; it's definitely a good sign that the economy's doing great for them, because you don't open restaurants (which means : buy real estate and invest serious money) and see lots of people in the downtown retail streets in faltering cities... (hell, that's pretty much how economists determined that Athens' heart pulse was back : https://tranio.com/articles/street-retail-in-athens-city-centre-and-prime-suburban-areas-in-the-spotlight/) Source : my native city is like that, the central street has lost 2 shops out of 3 over the last 10 years, and now looks like the setting of a Wild West cowboy movie :lol: and to tell that the mayor of the city was the minister of labor of France! Sure gives him credency...

Something called Real Nice is taking the vacant Mad Hatter's Cafe space inside the Hartford Building.

I heard yesterday from someone in the know that the sale has been finalized. Headington now owns the building containing the former Sol Irlandes space, Campisi's, Woolworth, and the State Farm Insurance space.

Now that Headington is fully invested in Stone Place, I hope they can continue improving the plaza for the sake of the 3 restaurants with patio seating here. Kudos to Headington for expanding the width, but with the light fixtures, landscaping and shade structures still in place where they are, the whole thing just looks halfway done.

Hopefully, after this is wrapped up, Field@Ross@Griffin will be the next project.

I will be happy as long as Headington doesn't demolish those old structures.

Hell prolly destroy them and create a high end drive-thru liquor store.

I just wish he would open up that greenspace as promised in previous statements to the city council.

A New Irish Pub Debuts in the Dallas Arts District Next Week
In what may finally be a successful venture in a troubled spot, a new Irish pub is about to open at One Arts Plaza.

Called The Playwright Irish Pub, it's going into the space most previously occupied by Proof + Pantry. It's from Alan Kearney, a native of Ireland who also runs The Crafty Irishman in downtown Dallas.

The new pub will offer hundreds of whiskeys and scotches, plus 50 beers on tap, including a healthy Irish selection.

The Playwright is at 1722 Routh St., Suite 102, and will open at a highly civilized 10 am every day, and close at 2 am.

This is definitely an interesting venue to open in the Arts District. I'm loving the daily late hours of this place, and it definitely sounds way more approachable the most of the higher end places in the area. Wonder how well this will do.
