Parker Barrows to offer craft beer, deli sandwiches, late nights

parker barrows

Parker Barrows, the new bar and restaurant coming soon to the corner of West Davis and Bishop, has an old-school look.

Like, 1930s old.

The bar, named for West Dallas outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, takes a prominent corner on a 1930s building. And the new occupants have added ceiling fans, an industrial fridge and lighting fixtures from the ’30s, all picked up at flea markets and refurbished.

Bar manager Adrian Abeyta has worked up a menu of six classic cocktails and six seasonal cocktails. There are 24 taps — 23 for beer and one for root beer. And chef Kevin MacClaren will offer a menu of traditional New York deli-style sandwiches. All the bread and desserts will be baked nearby at Cretia’s.

Parker Barrows could open in the next few weeks, and it will be open 11 a.m.-2 a.m., making it one of a couple of late-night spots in Bishop Arts.
