For folks in search of dinner and dancing with a side of hypnotism, giant new nightclub/restaurant hybrid Don’t Tell Supper Club has made its debut in Downtown.

The massive new 10,000 square foot restaurant has quietly opened in Downtown on Commerce Street, according to a press release. The spot is equal parts restaurant, nightclub, and theatre, complete with a 120-seat dining room, two bars, a 24-foot stage, and enclosed outdoor patio.

As far as the food is concerned, Chef Tre Wilcox (most recently of now-shuttered Plano restaurant Julia Pearl) has been charged with developing the menu. Look forward to shareable dishes like smoked hamachi crudo and beef sliders alongside larger options like whole fish and “lamb three ways,” a trio of smoked rack of lamb, braised lamb leg, and spice-rubbed t-bones.

After 11 p.m. the restaurant transforms into a nightclub, complete with live burlesque performers, professional hypnotists, and other acts. Of course, plenty of booze will be on offer to fuel a night of dancing, including a menu of wines, whiskeys, and craft beers. Cocktails are decidedly theatrical, like an Old Fashioned cocktail served in an old-school medicine bottle and Champagne punch spiked with Pop Rocks.

Don’t Tell Supper Club will double as a private event venue known as DT Downtown, and plans to add brunch shows to its repertoire in the fall. In the meantime, curious diners can check out the space for dinner on Thursday and Friday nights starting at 6 p.m.
