Remember that time Dallas Observer columnist Jim Schutze had to “eat crow” after calling the Margaret Hunt Hill a “bridge to nowhere”?
He maintained that the Santiago Calatrava-designed bridge is “still stupid,” but he acknowledged that West Dallas definitely is somewhere.
That infamous quip now has made its way into a West Dallas developer’s plans.
Oaxaca Interests, the developer of Sylvan Thirty, is opening a new entertainment venue in a former West Dallas industrial site.
It’s called Nowhere, TX.
The venue, at 1216 W. Commerce at Edgefield, debuts Saturday, June 2, with Food and Fashion, a fundraiser for Booker T. Washington High School. That party is being catered by 18th & Vine BBQ, and it’s free, but tickets must be reserved.
The venue will host pop-up events with rotating chefs and menus.
“Our hope is to create a unique space that showcases a creative new use for the spaces along this industrial corridor. We plan to host and produce events at Nowhere, TX for a few years,” says Brent Jackson of Oaxaca Interests.
The 2.8-acre venue has three buildings. Hocker Design Group is designing the landscape and hardscape, including an enclosed children’s play area.
