The Chesterfield to Star in a Reality Show, Sort Of, We Think, According to the Chesterfield

A video posted on the Chesterfield's Facebook page is causing a mini stir for owner Eddie Campbell. The video, hosted on something called BoomMedia.TV, depicts the bartender/owner in a reality-TV-short-teaser kind of thing about the opening of the The Chesterfield.

Facebook fans started calling the bar asking when the show was going to air. "It's more of a pre-pilot teaser," Campbell said of the short. The footage shows Campbell shaking cocktails, speeding through the streets and talking about "the movement," a reference to fancy cocktail-making's arrival in Dallas.

Information on the boommedia website, which looks to have been created solely for this project, points to the larger aspirations of documenting the cocktail culture throughout America, but none of that footage is depicted in the short. It's all Dallas for now. For a compelling show, producers would have to talk to leading mixoligists in Washington D.C., San Fransisco, Chicago and New York.

They should probably hit up Tales of the Cocktail, too. The annual cocktail event, held in New Orleans draws the nation's best bartenders as they cross-pollinate, test ideas and generally congregate in one massive drunken stupor.

No word on when it will be finished. But when and if it does come out, we'll be sure to post an update. For now, check out the teaser here.

Wasn't this supposed to happen with Bella when it was open?

What, they were all supposed to wear assless chaps?  Make sure "fast eddy" or whatever his name is, wears a diaper while wearin' them chaps; I watched that video, and man alive that's a bunch of shite.

Can you imagine the crap you'd have to listen to in this place?  Some turd with a fedora telling stories about "this' and "that", the whole time the fedora bouncing to and fro, as you are trying to HAVE peace.  Once again, when barkeeps become celeb's, are celebrity trash men far behind?  I vote "no" and double vote for Mccain.....I want to cleanse myself of the Obama experience.

I've long posited that unless you are a member of the Rat Pack, or a '40s businessman people who wear fedora's are douches.

Wearin' a fedora is akin to wearing one black glove, or assless chaps.  It's just a bit.

Aren't there other places that deserve attention too? You guys are fixated on this joint.

The Chesterfield deserves some extra attention. It brings something new to downtown, and Dallas as a whole. It's a good spot. And I've seen both cocktail snobs and miller lite  enthusiasts imbibe there.

But, I'm an equal opportunity drinker.  And it's Friday. What's on the agenda?

Were the miller lite enthusiasts frowned at or looked down upon, or possible whispered about by the cocktail snobs, or where they wholly accepted by said folks

Fedoras seem to be part of the uniform.

Why not sleeve garters and suspenders? Maybe an onion on the belt...
