The Spread Eagle Saloon will not be an actual breastaurant, but rather breastaurant-ish, according to owner Scott Scripps, who e-mailed us this morning with some details about the new downtown bar. (Krista Nightengale over at D spotted their TABC sign in the window earlier this month.) Of the name, Scripps says, "Honestly, we were throwing around names, that one came up, and it was too good to pass on." Oh, sure, they'll have a "laid back atmosphere" and "a heck of a good looking female staff," but "we wouldn't classify ourselves as a Breastaurant in the same way that Hooter's and Twin Peaks, et al, are." Scripps says the bar will have a blue-collar, rock and roll vibe.
They'll also serve food all week long, including lunch service. Scripps wouldn't say who's behind their menu because the details aren't yet finalized, but hints that "diners should be very pleased with the quality of 'bar food' we will offer." The Spread Eagle Saloon will also feature 50 or so beers and an extensive shot menu with "racy names." Plus: pool, darts, and what Scripps reckons is downtown's only shuffleboard table. He says he hopes to be open by TX/OU weekend, though it's not a guarantee.
