A new bar opening on Ross Avenue has set a date. Little Woodrow's, the concept from Houston, will make its Dallas debut in a vintage building at 3300 Ross Ave. on September 16.

The opening brings more than 100 types of beer, a full bar, 22 high-definition TVs, and a killer patio courtyard.

Houstonians know Little Woodrow's for its multitude of taps dedicated to craft beer, and multitude of TVs for the watching of sports. Owner Danny Evans founded the chain in 1995; branches have since opened in Austin, San Antonio, and Katy, each unique, but with certain commonalities.

The Dallas branch is going into an old building that's been impeccably refurbished by property owner Ben Schwartz. It's part of a complex that includes a one-of-a-kind specialty spirits store from Los Angeles called Bar & Garden, and a Dallas outlet of Fort Worth meat market Burgundy's Local - Grass Fed Meat Market.

Little Woodrow's will be open for lunch and dinner daily, as well as weekend brunch.

Co-owner Rick Engel says in a release that Little Woodrow's goal is to feel like a home away from home. "The Little Woodrow’s on Ross Avenue is a great fit for the neighborhood," he says.

The more than 100 beers from around the world will include 46 on tap, with at least 25 local craft beers. There are also 80 whiskeys, six white wines, five red wines, two champagnes, and daily drink specials as part of the selection.

The menu includes 10 burgers, 10 kinds of wings, and a dish called "mile-high nachos" that does look high, although maybe not a mile high. A "Football Brunch" runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. They'll show all college and NFL games with a focus on the Dallas Cowboys, University of Texas, Texas A&M, and Baylor; plus baseball, soccer, and other games.
