Ebb and Flow, a mysterious new concept from the owners of some of Deep Ellum’s most beloved music venues, is in the works on Commerce Street.

Permit applications filed with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission indicate that Ebb & Flow will open at 2651 Commerce Street, taking over the 2,673 square foot space formerly occupied by The Parlor on Commerce. Those filings connect the project to Whitney and Clint Barlow, who currently own Trees, The Bomb Factory, and Canton Hall in the neighborhood.

The TABC filings don’t make clear whether or not Ebb & Flow will be a bar or a restaurant, but a certificate of occupancy application indicates that it will serve food. The issuance of that certificate of occupancy is currently pending an inspection of the space, according to City of Dallas records, which means that it’s time for some wildly unfounded speculation about what Ebb & Flow will potentially look like — perhaps it’s an ocean-themed rum bar with Caribbean cuisine, or maybe Deep Ellum will soon be home to a Hawaiian dive bar.

Eater has reached out to the Barlows for more (actual) details on Ebb & Flow, and when it will open. Stay tuned for an update.
