When I received a text reading “Found the new Rustic, you’d love it.” I immediately responded, “Take me Thursday!” Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it until Friday, but it was totally worth the wait.
With the rustic feel of well, the Rustic, this new-found gem has the comfort of a converted barn with the charm to keep you to stay. On the property, you’ll find Chicken Scratch, a down-home comfort food establishment serving up a stacked menu of fork-and-knife biscuit sandwiches and “Dallas’ Best Mac ‘n Cheese.” On the other side, you’ll find The Foundry, an 21-up bar with interesting and inventive takes on the classics like summer beers and Moscow mules.
Located across the bridge in Oak Cliff, Chicken Scratch and The Foundry teamed up to create the perfect hangout spot: a sprawling open area full of picnic tables and comfy old couches offering up space to settle down to drink, eat and listen to music performed on their stage made of converted keg platforms. The ambience is absolutely perfect for Saturday afternoons that quickly turn into Saturday nights spent drinking with friends. Load up a carful of friends to make the trip and plan to stay because Chicken Scratch and The Foundry together provide anything you could want.
