Recognize the name? Bar Stellar is the new and improved former Stellar that sits right off of the expressway on Knox Henderson. If you haven’t been yet, you need to go. Get your cameras ready and head on over.
21-year-old entrepreneur and SMU student, Francois Reihani, purchased Stellar and transformed it into what we will now all know as Bar Stellar.
Adding new furniture, a spunky fresh wallpaper and a menu re-vamp, Reihani has elegantly brought the Beverly Hills Hotel to Dallas.
If it isn’t obvious already, Bar Stellar is going to absolutely kill it in the Dallas community and with SMU students. The architecture and interior design of Bar Stellar features a trendy neon sign that says “It’s not love, I’m just drunk”. There’s also an outside terrace, an indoor bar and a super cute pink room perfect for brunches and GNOs.
“I’ve directed everything towards social media,” said Reihani. “As far as drinks go, we’re really looking at the presentation and making the cocktail into an art, and something that you’d want to take a picture of.”
It’s no secret that everything that comes from the kitchen or at the bar is simply gorgeous. As if the neon sign and environment weren’t photo-ready enough, the food is spectacular. (If you’re feeling spontaneous get the ‘chicken in a cone’ it’s my favorite thing to eat ever).
The food is so delicious and the menu is chic and simple. The menu features classics such as eggs benedict, avocado toast, a Denver omelet and much more. The best part is that no matter what you order on the menu, you’re in for a win.
Francois, along with his colleague Kristi, created the food and drink menu to capture every aspect of a picture-worthy brunch. Each drink is a work of art and feature ingredients such as dry ice, matcha and interesting glasses to bring a fun theme to the table.
Former Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay and her fiancé, as well as a Real Housewife of Dallas have already made an appearance, which means you should too!
Make reservations quick, because spots are filling up.
Have fun, snap a pic, and ENJOY!
