Star-studded trio opens fun new cocktail lounge on Dallas' Cedar Springs
A trio of first-timers is bringing a glitzy new bar to the Cedar Springs strip of Dallas. Called Mr. Misster, it will feature craft cocktails and a sophisticated atmosphere in a neighborhood known for casual drinking and wild nights.
It's opening on June 28, with a grand opening party on June 29. All are welcome.
The bar is from a fun young trio that boasts a star-studded background.
- Trey Stewart works as an assistant to Stephanie Hollman of Real Housewives of Dallas fame.
- Meghan Harris is married to Devin Harris of Dallas Mavericks fame, and is a celebrity in her own right, including her stint as a former Fear Factor contestant.
- Mitchell Maggard is a familiar face in the nightlife world, having been a server at bars such as Avenu, a former Uptown lounge.
Maggard says that Mr. Misster will function as something more than just another bar in the "gayborhood."
"The Strip has this sort of electricity we wanted to build on, but bring something completely different," he says. "You won't feel like you're in a gay-only bar."
They're at 3900 Cedar Springs Rd., in the space that was previously Peasant Pizzeria. They've transformed the space into an open-concept lounge with plush seating and a black bar top dusted in glitter. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook a small patio along the side of the building.
The menu includes rare and hard-to-find liquors, plus hand-crafted drinks made with fresh ingredients, such as a spiked strawberry lemonade and a cucumber spritzer.
They're also doing unusual twists on classic cocktails, such as an Old Fashioned made with tequila instead of bourbon, and an Espresso Martini made with vodka and Kahlua and shaken with a shot of espresso.
This area is known for late-night Jell-O shots, so they'll do their own spin: "We are going to have Gummy Bear shots soaked in vodka," Harris says.
Both she and Maggard will be working at the bar. "Working together has been so easy and so intuitive — we each bring different strengths to the bar," Harris says.
They'll be open from 3 pm to midnight during the week and until 2 am on weekends.
Stewart says they're excited to come to The Strip. "This area is such a destination for people from Dallas, Fort Worth, Frisco, and everywhere in between," he says.
