Move over SXSW, Austin Fashion Week 2016 (“AFW”) is coming and it’s revving up into a …
Mr. Misster, a new sophisticated bar and lounge on Cedar Springs is now open and introducing a fresh flair to the bustling district. Boasting 3,500 square feet, the lively location is the brainchild of Trey Stewart (the assistant to Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman), and Meghan Harris (wife of former Dallas Mavericks NBA player Devin Harris).
So what’s behind the name? “We wanted a name that was catchy but symbolic of the neighborhood,” Co-Owner Trey Stewart said. “With the help of a few Mambo Taxi’s and a long afternoon, we settled on Mr. Misster. We wanted to create the vibe of a more upscale lounge by combining the masculine features of our space with more glamorous feminine touches.”
With a full-length bar, lengthy craft cocktail menu, resident DJ and more, Mr. Misster with its viral instagrammable sign (“It’s Not Gonna Lick Itself”), is the latest in sips and selfies to hit the strip.
The lively locale is now nestled on the corner of Reagan Street and Cedar Springs Road, and occupies the former Peasant Pizzeria space at 3900 Cedar Springs. Showcasing a full interior renovation, including brick wall installations, neon LED signage and magenta lighting—the newest hotspot to settle in the district has opened to much neighborhood buzz and support.
Unlike neighboring counterparts, Mr. Misster (hence its feminine/masculine name hybrid), is not focused on being the quintessential gay bar as one would assume. “Our goal was to create a bar where everyone felt welcomed and a space that everyone could enjoy,” Stewart explained. “Overall, we have always stuck to our core belief that you can provide kind service with quality drinks in an intimate, fun environment.”
One can pour, sip and score at the neighborhood hangout, with a vast selection of craft cocktail creations ranging from the namesake bestseller Mr. Misster to Mint To Be to the Skinny Bitch. Cocktail prices vary from $9 to $12. For more information, visit www.mrmissterdallas.com. Hours of operations: Mon.: Closed; Tues. Weds. & Sun.: 5PM to Midnight; Thurs. Fri. & Sat.: 5PM to 2AM.
