This is the final week for gastropub The Common Table in Uptown
The Common Table, a favorite destination for brews, whiskey cocktails, and comfort food like grilled cheese, is shutting its doors after a decade in business. CultureMap reported the news of the Uptown gastropub’s closure, which will happen on January 26.
The Common Table’s outpost in Frisco will reportedly live on, and in a message on Facebook, the restaurant cited lease negotiations for the closure, with hopes to relocate elsewhere in Dallas:
All good things must come to an end. Unfortunately we’ve reached the end of our life in Uptown Dallas. Our lease renewal is coming up and the building is in need of significant repairs and we’ve been unable to reach an agreement with our landlord.
Sunday, January 26th will be our last day. This entire week we’ll be open as usual and really hope to see lots of you who have supported us over the years. The coming weekend will be a celebration of the past 10 years and all the wonderful times we’ve had together.
It’ll kick off Friday night with a “see ya later on” party… because we’re hoping this isn’t goodbye as we continue to look for an alternate Dallas location. Our buddy Joel Salazar will be spinning records and we’re gonna tap the very best beers we have in our cooler this week to wet your whistle.

A flood can’t stop Las Almas Rotas

Well, the silver lining of the flood and remediation is that it forced us to install this beautiful tile wall! Now, we know that no one will mistake us for master tilers, but hey, our whole style is rustic! We reopen to the public tonight. Stop on by and have a drink and a bite, and learn from two maestro mezcaleros who will be there tonight only! #lasalmasrotas #mezcaleria #mezcal #floodssuck #destiladosmexicanos #mexicandistillates #mezcalartesanal #agavecultura #destiladodeagave #mexicanspirits #aguardiente #sotol #bacanora #raicilla #tequila #lechugilla #pox #tepe #tutsi #charanda #craftcocktails #chelas #cerveza #dallas #expositionpark
