BY // 11.10.20

From more hot chicken and a kitschy Christmas pop-up called Tipsy Elf, the new Dallas restaurant and bar openings keep rolling in this fall. Here are three new spots to add to your list for the holiday season.

Tipsy Elf Christmas Pop-Up Bar (Open November 27 to January 2)

308 N. Bishop Avenue (Good Companions house)

Taking over Good Companions coffee house on November 27, the Tipsy Elf bar will bring much-needed holiday cheer to Dallas. The kitschy pop-up concept comes from Exxir Hospitality (Paradiso, Tejas, Botanist) and will feature holiday cocktails and a festive setting until January 2. Cocktails range from mulled wine and vegan egg nog to a sage-infused Gin Fizz. There will also be holiday cookies and seasonal-inspired bites to accompany your drinks. As for the host, you’ll see Larry the elf around the house, as well as drag artist Mrs. Clause (every Thursday through Saturday from 6 pm to 2 am).

Hot Chicks Nashville Hot Chicken (Coming Soon)

1885 Dallas Parkway, Suite 300, Plano

The hot chicken craze continues with another spicy joint set to open near The Shops at Willow Bend this December. At Hot Chicks, guests can expect boozy slushies, crinkle cut fries, tacos, and of course, hot chicken sandwiches and tenders. The fast-casual restaurant will offer Halal, dairy-free, and peanut-free chicken in heat levels ranging from no heat to “Hot AF.” There will also be a grilled hot chicken option if you’re feeling healthy. The Plano outpost will be the brand’s first location in DFW, though they already have plans to expand to Dallas, Las Colinas, and Arlington.
