One beer and wine store opens, another is coming soon on West Davis

Here comes the booze. A year after Dallas voted to make Oak Cliff wet, beer and wine stores are cropping up on West Davis.

Dan Beer and Wine opened last week on West Davis at Polk.

When I visited, they didn’t have their wine selection in stock yet, but the beer selection was pretty good. They have one full cooler of local and craft beers. That cooler also contained Rheingold, which I thought was interesting since I don’t recall seeing it in Dallas before, and it is neither craft nor local. Is it the new Pabst, the beer cool kids drink because it’s ironic? Anyway, we bought New Belgium Snow Day. It cost $8.99 for six.

Another store, North Oak Cliff Beer and Wine, is coming soon to the space on West Davis at Clinton, adjacent to Urban Acres. North Oak Cliff Beer & Wine is opening on the same block as Chelsmati’s Wine Market, which Oak Cliff resident Tina Acosta opened in July.

    This is how Potterstown started.  I’d be happier if some other types of businesses were coming in.

    Yes, Meredith is right. It does say “food stamps” on the far right. The signage is rather ugly.

    There are no liquor stores in Oak Cliff. The closest ones are in the city of Cockrell Hill, or across the bridge, on Riverfront Blvd.

    It’s fine and dandy that we’re getting another beer and wine store.  But it’s Christmas time and that means eggnog.  Where can I find a decent liquor store around here so I can add some rum to go with my eggnog?

    If you enlarge the picture, Dan’s sign clearly says food stamps.

    I wish Oak Cliff had a signage compliance code.  Our neighborhood and business district would be nicer if owners had to try a little harder in making their establishments look descent with better signage.

    It doesn’t say “Food Stamps” in their sign. It says “Food Store”.

    Does anyone have any idea why they felt the need to include “food stamps” in their signage?

    Thanks Rachel, that’s was what I was asking about.

    Bishop Arts Winery is planned for the former Padilla Gallery space at Tyler and Davis. I think that’s what you’re asking about. They are open to serve coffee and pastries for breakfast, but the last I heard, they are delayed because it is taking so long to get approvals to manufacture wine and also sell wine through TABC. If I understand right, they can’t get a TABC license to sell wine while they’re in the process of applying for the license to manufacture, and it’s just a lot of red tape. They are planning a concept similar to Times Ten Cellars.

    Whatever happened to the wine & cheese shop that was supposed to open?
