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.
A craft cocktail menu takes recipes and inspiration from the ’30s. And even the extension of the full name: Parker Barrows Drafthouse and Deli, is taken from vintage photos of Depression-era hangouts.
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.
