A new late-night hangout with stone-fired pizza and traditional bar games is now open at Sylvan Thirty in West Dallas.

Sylvan Avenue Tavern, at 1888 Sylvan Avenue, is a sibling concept to Bryan Street Tavern, the Old East Dallas pub that has gained a reputation as a casual neighborhood hangout thanks to its laidback patio, thin-crust pizzas, and large selection of craft beer.

Sylvan Avenue Tavern, which opened quietly last week, aims to carry on that vibe, promising a “true neighborhood tavern experience.” Like BST, SAT’s menu focuses on pizza, with dough made from scratch daily (including a gluten-free option) and toppings like spicy Italian sausage, provolone cheese, artichokes, barbecue chicken, pork belly, and more. There is other pub fare too, including an impressive menu of appetizers like deviled eggs, fried jalapeños, red pepper hummus, loaded fries and pork rinds. Other dishes include burgers, hearty sandwiches, wings, pasta, and more. Drinks-wise, diners can expect a selection of craft cocktails and ice cold craft brews served at 29 degrees.

The kitchen at SAT is open until 2 a.m. nightly, making it one of the few restaurants in the area to serve late-night eats. SAT also hopes to foster a community of regulars with details like tavern games including pool and pinball, TVs for sports, and a shady rooftop patio that overlooks the city.

“We love seeing repeat faces and hope to be that neighborhood spot where everyone always feels welcome,” owner Joe Hinkson said in a press release.

Sylvan Avenue Tavern is open 11 .m. to 2 a.m. daily. The pub plans to add a happy hour, brunch service, and other events in the near future. Diners can stay tuned to the restaurant’s Instagram and Facebook for more details.
