The currently-in-flux Dallas Farmers Market remains a popular destination even after the exit of barbecue wonder Pecan Lodge — after all, who doesn't like free watermelon samples and fudge? — but it's always been a little lacking in the alcohol department. Enter Green Door Public House, the new venture from the owners of Deep Ellum sandwich shop Uncle Uber's that opened its doors earlier this month. It's housed in the historic Liberty Bank building, which appropriately enough used to house a series of pre-Prohibition saloons and was relocated from its original home at Elm and Cesar Chavez to cozy up to the farmers market. Its new tenant boasts a full bar and a solid menu of classic cocktails — think Sazeracs, Singapore Slings, Moscow Mules and martinis garnished with goat cheese-stuffed olives.
Oh, and there's food, too; while the menu here isn't breaking any new culinary ground, patrons will find a crowd-pleasing lineup of sandwiches, salads, burgers and a couple steaks, plus handmade onion rings, salmon skewers and green chile pork stew. Area residents will certainly appreciate the late-night hours (open till 2 a.m. nightly, with food served until midnight) and a happy hour from 4-7 p.m. on weekdays that takes $1 off all drinks.
