Has the New Cocktail Era Hit Dallas?

That’s what an elbow-bending, NY-living FrontBurnervian wants to know:

I’m in Dallas this weekend and am wondering if the New Cocktail Era has yet infiltrated my home town. Are there any bartenders around town speaking out for gin and rye and shunning vodka, in the spirit of pre-prohibition mixology?

I’m only vaguely aware of what this FrontBurnervian is talking about. If it’s just old-school drinking environments he’s looking for, I think the Lion’s Den at the Stoneleigh is top-notch. Library Bar at the Melrose ain’t bad either. Does anyone know a) anything about this purported New Cocktail Era or b) where to find it ’round these parts?

Update: A helpful FrontBurnervian passes along this link to a story about the New Cocktail Era that ran in the Houston Press–though its 2005 date might put a damper on any claims of newness.
