Mr. Misster will open in the old Peasant Pizzeria space at 3900 Cedar Springs Rd. this Saturday.
Mr. Misster is a bar. More specifically, according to co-owner Trey Stewart, a “crafty cocktail lounge, which will be more upscale in the early evening and flip to a younger vibe as the night progresses.”
Trey works as an assistant to Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman and this is his first nightlife endeavor. After all, at just 23, he’s only been able to drink legally in Texas for a couple of years. His business partner is Meghan Harris. (Harris is married to Dallas Mavericks player Devin Harris.)
“We’ve been wanting to do this since November,” says Stewart. “We were just bumming down the street one day and saw a sign on the door at Peasant Pizzeria. It wasn’t a for sale sign, it was just to let people know that they were closed for renovations.”
The pizza restaurant never reopened and Stewart acquired the building.
“We were just going to knock down a wall,” he says. “But we ended up gutting the place.”
He explains that the design is a mix of masculine and feminine with brick walls and moody magenta lighting. He says that even though the bar is located along the Cedar Springs strip, he’s not setting out to create an exclusively gay bar. “This bar is for everybody,” he says. “I want the bar to be inclusive and not exclusive.”
“There will be espresso martinis and dry ice cocktails…We’ll also have a house DJ.”
Mr. Misster will be open Sunday through Tuesday from 5 p.m. until midnight and Thursday through Saturday from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. Their grand opening party is this Saturday, June 29 at 8 p.m.
