Katy Trail Ice House and Park Towers Prove Gardens and Towers Don't Get Along

This can't be noisy at all.
Maybe it's a little bit of a stretch, but it's hard for me not to make some comparisons. The Park Towers Condominium has been up in The Katy Trail Ice House's grill since the bar opened, complaining about noise. They've requested truncated hours and soundproofing inside the popular Uptown beer garden. There's even talk about building a massive wall.

Sounds a little like the woes between Museum Tower and the Nasher Sculpture Center.

According to the Dallas Business Journal, the disagreement between a small group of Park Tower residents and the Ice House has been going on since the bar opened.

The residents say they don't want the bar to close, they just want an abatement agreement, which seems fair, but I'm wondering how the noise pouring out of the outdoor patio compares with the planes that fly overhead just before they land at Love Field.

You guys have some points, but are you also the assholes who think everyone wants to hear you blaring music at 3 am? I'd have a different opinion if the bar was there first and then the housing was built, but when it's the other way around, be a good neighbor and shut the hell up. Not everybody has the luxury of being an Uptown doucher who can sleep from 4-noon 7 days a week.

Who knew Seniors were the most disenfranchised when the Jet Set closed?

They should close their windows and turn down their hearing aids. They are lucky beer bottles are not thrown at them.

It's always amusing to listen to newly-arrived yokels from the suburbs complain about noise when they move into the center of the city.

And if they have a problem with the noise, why the fuck did the tower owners call in TABC, yeah they dont want to work with the bar, they want it shut down.  Thats the only reason TABC was called.  and then the owners hide from interviews and decline to answer emails or calls about it.  Yeah we know who the bullies are.
