Top Dallas wine bar Mercy just announced plans to expand to Irving’s massive Toyota Music Factory complex. Unlike its original location in Addison that serves beer and wine only, its sophomore project situated inside the mega entertainment complex will have a full bar.
Mercy is scheduled to arrive in December atop the Green Gator Cajun Sports Bar overlooking Texas Lottery Plaza. The O.G. wine bar, which opened 17 years ago in Addison, enjoys a steady stream of regulars all about experimentation and education. Its wild weekday happy hour (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) pours its star product for $7 a glass.
All-day consumption of its 100 curated wines will also be encouraged at its latest location: The restaurant will open at 11 a.m. for lunch and close at 1 a.m. The menu will be filled with a familiar lineup of items like shareable flatbreads, cheese plates, mussels, filet mignon, and seasoned salmon drizzled with strawberry glaze.
Toyota Music Factory, a 500,000-square-foot entertainment and lifestyle complex in Las Colinas Urban Center, features a 8,000-person concert venue, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema multiplex movie theater, and a sea of restaurants and bars. The development has seen significant turnover in the restaurants and bars that have opened there since its 2017 debut, including the shuttering of the massive Big Beat Dallas, a “five restaurants under one roof” concept from the owner of legendary Fort Worth honky-tonk Billy Bob’s that closed after just two months.
