Originally set to land in Spring 2016, popular Austin gastropub Haymaker is now making some progress toward opening its first Dallas location later this year.
There's still plenty of work to be done, but much of the major construction on the structure at 1520 Greenville Ave., formerly an outpost of The Flying Saucer, has been completed. Don’t expect for this space to look the same – scope out the photos below which indicate a pretty massive overhaul:
A spokesperson for Haymaker tells Eater that owners Keith Sandel, Brian Pacheco, and Troy Moore originally had hoped to have the bar open by St. Patrick's Day, but unexpected bumps in the construction process delayed the project through the summer.
As far as the menu is concerned, you can expect for the food & drink on offer to largely resemble Haymaker’s original outpost in Austin. A daily menu of booze specials (think $4 "white trash" cans of beer and $2 mimosas) is a good fit for the hard-partying ‘hood, as is the food on offer, like open-faced sandwiches smothered in Gruyere sauce and sausage gravy poutine.
Assuming all goes according to plan, look for Haymaker Dallas to land in late summer or early fall, perhaps just in time for Labor Day revelry.
