The Mockingbird Taproom is Closed

Thumbnail image for Mockingbird Taproom Logo.JPG
A tipster emailed me over the weekend to let me know that Mockingbird Taproom has closed. Their website is currently down, and a call to the restaurant went unanswered. The mailbox for the number is full.

A spokesperson for Mockingbird Station, which leases the space, confirmed that the restaurant was currently closed, but would not comment on the reason for the closure.

Restaurants-America, the company that owns the Taproom, also confirmed the closure was permanent. The Chicago-based restaurant and consulting company owns more than 20 restaurants across the nation including Boca Chica, Primebar and Townhouse here in Dallas.

My take (besides troubled biz management): tough location, sterile atmosphere because they de-emphasized the big windows and a very transient crowd. In their defense, they had a great happy hour. Velvet Hammer (which was occasionally and incorrectly served to my advantage in pint glasses) was only $3.

Maybe management deciced they were on the wrong side of Twin Peaks. Anyway, it's too bad. Good product, weak location.

Mockingbird Station needs that Twin Peaks to open, stat! Nothing like boobies to drive business.

I can tell you exactly why they closed: per the sign on their door (seen yesterday), they haven't paid their lease rent, all the locks have been changed.  It's a shame because their food was really good (esp the soft pretzel sticks) and they had a good beer selection.  I wish it was Boca Chica closing instead, that place is absolutely terrible.

I liked that place.  They had a lot of local beer and the food was pretty tasty.  It never seemed slow in there when I went, but I suppose there just wasn't enough business in that shopping center to keep them afloat.

It's sad. If Primebar closes, all those lady bartenders will have to go back to pole dancing.
