It's November and business is happening in Denton. In our monthly, Quick Denton Business Update post, we take a look at the openings and closings of restaurants and other store fronts in Denton, TX. Let's get to it for this month.
What we previously reported as a "Jack Mac's Swill and Grill" to open in the old All About Mac spot will soon be a craft cocktail bar dubbed Fry and Hickory. The minds behind the spot are still the same folks behind Jack Mac's, but we're now excited to have a cocktail centric bar near UNT. The space should open soon.
Audacity Brew House is now open over on Shady Oaks Dr. We scoped out the place a few weeks ago and had a veritable blast. We're always excited to see exciting, new businesses open up off of the square and Audacity is no exception. Spaces for food trucks and great beer obviously make for a great combination.
Armadillo Ale Works announced that they will move their operations to Denton in a space off of 35.
SCRAP Denton announced earlier this week that they will close up their shop on the Square in late December and relocate to their brand new location on 420 S. Bell Ave around the new year. The new location is already painted and looks to be an awesome fit for SCRAP (not to mention it's in walking distance from Shift and The DIME Store).
Pollo Tropical, the Cuban-themed fast food joint, is now open in front of the mall. We checked it out during their grand opening last week and have already been back for more of their Calypso beef and corn souffle this week. The Corner Bakery a few doors over should open very soon.
Bosses Pizza has ceased operations. It might have been that blow up gorilla they had out front that did them in.
While we're still talking about Loop 288, Nothing Bundt Cakes, the chain that sells...nothing but...bundt cakes, will open in November, as well. We're actually kinda stoked to make our way over and check out their cupcake-rival that they dub the "bundlet."
Jack's Tavern will take over the old Last Drop Tavern location on Elm St. People are apparently still pushing that whole "tavern" thing. We hope to have more info on this spot soon and will let ya know. From what we can tell, though, they're hard at work getting that space together and should be open soon.
West Oak Coffee Bar looks way more like a coffee bar now, y'all. And may actually be open sometime in the next few months. Chocolate milk on tap, here we come.
There's plenty of other stuff in the works that we've been sworn to secrecy on for now, but suffice it to say, come 2015, Denton will have plenty of fun stuff in the works. Now go shop at your favorite local business.
