New champagne bar on Dallas' Oak Lawn picks prime time for toasts to debut
A champagne bar long in the works is about to make its debut just in time for a holiday toast: Coupes, a French-inspired bar which purports to have "a touch of Texas," will open at 4234 Oak Lawn Ave. at the end of December. Exactly which day they do not say but you can be sure they will be working hard to open in time for New Year's Eve.
Located at The Shops of Highland Park, in the former Jos. A. Bank men's clothing store, Coupes was founded by champagne enthusiasts Eric Chiappinelli and Amanda Hale, who have assembled a vast selection of true champagnes, sparkling wines, and still wines, sourced from France and Texas.
That includes more than 15 champagnes and sparkling wines by the glass and 50 labels by the bottle including Perrier-Jouët, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Pol Roger, and Ruinart, as well as Texan sparkling wines from William Chris.
You can order by the glass, bottle, or a champagne flight. Totally here for the champagne flight.
They'll also offer beer, signature cocktails, and a menu of elevated small plates including gougères, wild mushroom tartine, fried chicken herbes de provence, oysters, and a caviar service.
The entrance features a custom mosaic tile floor, lacquered Venetian plaster walls, rich Opuzen fabrics, and high-quality European furnishings.
The focal point is a circular bar with glittering Cambria quartz that beams a subtle shimmer, surrounded by blush bar stools and a reclaimed brass foot rail.
Champagne bottles climb the circular façade in the center of the bar, and there's also a circular ice bucket filled with cold bottles of champagne. #circular
Banquette seating comes with built-in champagne buckets. Two intimate lounge spaces and small tables offer additional seating.
“We’re thrilled to welcome guests into Coupes,” says Eric Chiappinelli in a release. “Come drink the stars as you’re carried away to an evening in Paris in the heart of Dallas.”
