A hip Dallas restaurant group plans to open a cocktail bar in a small space on Tyler at West Davis.
Tiny Victories is planned for 602 N. Tyler, behind Set & Co. It’s from the owners of Wayward Son on Lower Greenville, The Standard Pour on McKinney Avenue and the to-come Ferris Wheeler’s in the Design District, among others.
They’re taking a space that comprises about 1,000 square feet with a 250-square-foot patio.
David Spence of Good Space renovated the 1930s retail strip, which also includes Spinster Records. Brandon Hays of This and That Concepts says Spence is charismatic, and “you can see he genuinely cared about who comes into the space.”
“I’ve never been vetted harder for a space than I have for this small space,” Hays says.
Hays and his partners attended a block party at the development, which Spence calls “TyPo” for its position near Tyler and Polk streets, a few months ago. They liked the community feel and camaraderie between business owners, Hays says.
Tiny Victories would offer “a great cocktail environment without the high nosery,” Hays says. A neighborhood watering hole with a “well-curated gathering of beer, wine and spirits.”
The bar probably would offer salty snacks but not food.
For that to happen, they are requesting a specific-use permit from the city to allow an alcoholic beverage establishment.
Their case goes to the City Plan Commission for consideration in February and could make it to full City Council in March or April. If approved, Tiny Victories could open in July or August.
