Mike’s Gemini Twin, a no-frills new neighborhood bar in the Cedars district just south of Downtown, is officially ready to begin slinging drinks.

Co-owner Sam Wynne tells Eater that the bar will kick open the doors at 1902 South Harwood Street on Thursday, February 14, just in time for some laid-back Valentine’s Day boozing. The new bar is a partnership between Wynne, who owns Bowls & Tacos and Braindead Brewing, and fellow bar veteran Pasha Heidari, who owns Bowen House. The no-frills bar is intended to serve as a low-key spot for the area’s residents to grab a beer, sip a cocktail, or shoot some pool. Wondering where the name comes from? It’s a vintage Dallas reference, according to CultureMap, referring to a long-shuttered drive-in movie theatre called the Gemini Twin.

As far as the boozy offerings are concerned, don’t expect a fancy craft cocktail. At Mike’s, a full bar, wine, a “couple” of Braindead Brewing beers on tap, and numerous bottled beers will be on offer, according to Wynne. “It’s just a little neighborhood bar,” Wynne says. “Beer, wine, liquor — no printed menus or anything yet.”

Mike’s Gemini Twin officially kicks open the doors at 4 p.m. on Thursday, and will be open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
