One of the chicest cocktail bars in Dallas is a stone’s throw away

Houndstooth Coffee is adding two stores, one in Austin and one on Walnut Hill Lane, this year, bringing the total to six locations.

But there’s only one Jettison.

“This is our one-off,” says owner Sean Henry, who started Houndstooth in Austin in 2010 but lives with his wife and two kids near Kidd Springs Park.

Jettison is a Texas glam cocktail bar connected to the Houndstooth at Sylvan Thirty. It’s tiny, consisting of about a dozen bar seats, four tables and a loveseat lounge area. Dallas-based architecture, interiors and furniture studio Official designed the space so that guests are naturally drawn from coffee to cocktails and back.

Bartender George Kaiho won the regional round of a statewide cocktail competition with “one of these nights,” made with Amaro Lucano, Houndstooth coffee, cognac and almond syrup.

Other favorites include the Texas Manhattan, made with Balcones Brimstone whiskey, and the “good morning, Jerez” sherry cocktail.

The bar doesn’t have a huge selection of spirits, but they’re carefully curated, Henry says.

There are also snacks: cheese and meat boards, a selection of Spanish canned seafood and, on Wednesdays, tamales homemade by one of the bartenders to go with mezcal specials.
