Thirsty Lion Gastropub, a restaurant concept known for its seasonal menus with fresh and local ingredients and craft cocktails & beer menu, opened its fourth North Texas location, its first in the city of Dallas. Thirsty Lion Gastropub at Preston Hollow Village is on the northwest corner of North Central Expressway and Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas, Texas.
Thirsty Lion Gastropub has been expanding since its launch in 2010 with 10 locations in Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, and Texas.
Thirsty Lion’s Preston Hollow location will mark its first location in the city of Dallas. Preston Hollow Village is a mixed-use development anchored by Trader Joe’s, Frost Bank, and Orange Theory Fitness which features hi-rise, Class A, office space, mid-rise apartments and an outdoor shopping environment with boutique shopping, dining, and retail services.
This location was a redesign of an existing restaurant location in the shopping center. Inside, the design is an upscale version of the traditional Thirsty Lion style. Rustic wood finishes mix with modern decorative light fixtures.
The Gastropub has 7500 square feet of indoor dining and bar area and 1982 square feet of outdoor patio. The restaurant features an indoor/ outdoor bar, open kitchen, and patio area that wraps around the entire building. Total indoor seating capacity is 251 persons and outdoor seating capacity is 136 persons.
Thirsty Lion’s culinary commitment is to provide a variety of options that feature scratch-made, multicultural cuisines, with an emphasis on local ingredients. A seasonal fresh sheet focuses on the changing season’s offerings, featuring ingredients of fresh seafood, meats, and local vegetables and fruits. Signature dishes include the Gorgonzola-infused Gastropub Burger; Bacon Wrapped BBQ Prawns; Beer Battered Fish & Chips; Gochujang BBQ Pork & Kimchi Fried Rice; the Seared Ahi Salad; Baja Fish Tacos; and Traditional Scotch Eggs. The menu also features shareable appetizers, salads, sandwiches, fresh seafood, half-pound gourmet burgers and steaks. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are also available.
Thirsty Lion’s bar features a large selection of craft cocktails that highlight combinations of fresh fruit purees, juices and premium liquors. Guests can also enjoy a wide variety of beers on tap, many of which are local to Texas, offering a beer on hand as well as a wine list. The menu features modern takes on classic cocktails as well as signature drinks like their Grapefruit Basil Martini, Blood Orange Margarita and Old Fashioned.
The restaurant is equipped with dozens of HD flat screens inside and out. Thirsty Lion specifically programs its sports schedule every day to make sure that all sports viewing requests in the area are met.
In each community where Thirsty Lion opens a restaurant, they support the area schools with planned and interactive fundraising campaigns on a quarterly basis. They also host an annual neighborhood celebration for St. Patrick’s Day at each of their locations which support their national charity partner, St. Baldrick’s Foundation for pediatric cancer research.
Thirsty Lion Preston Hollow joins three other existing Texas locations at Grandscape, Texas, in The Colony, Toyota Music Factory in Irving, and Glade Parks in Euless.
