'Tis a sad day for the Dallas cocktail scene: Renowned mixologist Jason Kosmas, co-owner of legendary Manhattan bar Employees Only and the brain — and handlebar mustache — responsible for the many of the city's finest cocktail lists, is bidding adieu to D-Town. He's hitting the dusty trail (otherwise known as I-35) to Austin.
In his brief four year stay in Dallas, he lent his talents to such establishments as Neighborhood Services Tavern (RIP), Bolsa, Village Marquee, The Greek, Malai, and most recently created a menu of tasty libations, including draft cocktails, at the recently opened Bowlounge in the Design District.
Expect to see Kosmas-designed cocktails popping up in your city soon, Austinites, many of which will no doubt feature Kosmas' very own line of spirits, The 86 Company.
