The Soda Gallery is Closed

The Soda Gallery
Bishop Avenue was blocked off on Sunday afternoon for the third-annual Brew Riot, a homebrew competition featuring more than 50 homebrew teams. But while beer drinkers sipped their carbonated beverages, kiddies under the age of 21 weren't left with many options, as The Soda Gallery was closed.

The space that once housed this soda geek's heaven was completely vacant. The phone number's been disconnected, the website is no longer up, and the store's Facebook page and Twitter account contain no clues. We'll place some calls and update this accordingly, but for now it's safe to say: The Soda Gallery is no more, at least in the Bishop Arts District.

Its a sad day, as this place was one of my favorite stops here in Dallas, heres hoping someone takes on the mantle and opens a new venue here in town..

I heard the the owners were a gay couple and one of them was HIV positive? Could be completely off, but that's what I heard was a cause of their strange hours, and maybe it was a health thing?

Why does a little store closing matter when so many other places could be talked about in this blog? oh yeah. Because the observer has a hardon for Bishop Arts district.

Cute, quirky little shop but I was amazed they lasted as long as they did.

I like soda!  On that note, I drove over some busted soda bottles on Highway 271, north of Paris, last week, and started the 15 mile "death walk".  Thank the good lord an old farmer driving a Prius stopped and gave me a ride into town.  When in town he called around and found me a tire.  Then he drove me back and wished me well.  

How does this relate to C.O.A.?  People.......I dunno. 

ps-Also, This weekend I got DESTROYED by chiggers and ticks.  DESTROYED!  Damn Missouri.

Yea, I was going to pick up some sodas last week and saw it was closed. It's too bad but not real surprising. Anyone know what the rent is on that place?

Rather unfortunate as my fiance and I were at the Zoo this past weekend and decided to stop by. We drove around and then walked about the area and it was as if it never existed. Rather sad as it sounded great to visit and get a drink.

Very sorry to hear that.  Though it never reached the heights of Ifs Ands & Butts, it did continue Hamilton Rousseau's legacy in the neighborhood.

Bummer about that. Liked that store!  But that opens up a really cool space for something new and great

I was in there on May 4th as the were in the beginning stage of dismantling... When I asked the owner if they were moving or remodeling, he simply said that shipping costs had gotten too high to keep getting product from manufactures. He didn't offer up any plans to re-open elsewhere or down the road sometime. Sad such a cool unique little shop.

We were there about a month ago and they basically had no inventory, something was up.

I heard they've been doing online sales for the longest time now, and didn't really have the space open.

Um, no. I know the owners and that is way off. Get some facts, man.

 No. I had nothing to do with health and everything to do with shipping costs. Product would cost twice value just to get it out there. They did not work with large enough scale or volume to get any discounts.

Again, NOT a health issue. Jeesh. Where did you hear that?

 The entire city has a hardon for BA, and now just like anywhere else the parking is bad and most of the food is over rated so its just like everywhere else.

But then again it has been up and coming for about ten years
