One of Uptown’s staple buildings has a fresh new look! A new concept has opened its doors and replaced the former Boxwood T&G space: City Council Restaurant & Bar.
They aim to be a meeting-friendly space - hence the name - and their focus is on a healthy lifestyle menu along with craft cocktails and vibrant nightlife. City Council will provide State-Thomas and other neighborhood dwellers with a unique atmosphere - a sprouting tree in the middle of the lavish patio is sure to catch your attention.
You may recall that before Boxwood T&G opened, the building was home to TABC (Thomas Avenue Beverage Company) for nearly two decades. According to CultureMap Dallas, City Council owner-manager J.R. Reyna hopes to revive some of its spirit.
"One of the main things about that spot is we feel like it should be a neighborhood bar," he says. "We want to take care of the people in State Thomas. I feel like that's one of the things TABC did well, and we want to bring that back, the love people had for TABC when it was there."
