The Foundry

2303 Pittman St. Dallas, TX 75208 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-749-1112

Location Description:

In recent years, Oak Cliff has experienced an influx of great bars and restaurants, most of them popping up in the Bishop Arts District. But just north of there, in the space formerly occupied by Jack’s Backyard, the owners of Bolsa and Smoke have opened The Foundry. The sprawling yard is enclosed by open boxcars (with tables and chairs for lounging) the Foundry bar (with gaping garage doors and plenty of seating) and a fried-chicken joint called Chicken Scratch, featuring home-spun favorites from Smoke chef Tim Byres. On the far end of the beer garden sits a massive stage, constructed entirely of wooden pallets. In the good-weather months, there are few better places in the city to drink outside.
