Inside Outpost Tavern, Oak Cliff's Newest Venue From the Owners of The Foundry and More

Outpost American Tavern sits north and east of the Bishop Arts District a few blocks away from the Houston Viaduct. With it, Chris Jeffers and his business partners (the ones also behind Smoke, Bolsa and The Foundry) continue a run of carefully conceived restaurants and bars -- ones that transport you. Fried chicken joint The Foundry hosts shows on its sculpted stage from time to time, so it's not fair to call Outpost the group's first foray into this particular kind of nightlife. But if Outpost continues to put together the kinds of bills it did for a sort of grand opening event on Friday, it will soon be in the discussion as one of the live music hubs of the city.

The show featured solo sets from the front-people of Heartless Bastards, Baptist Generals and The Theater Fire. Photographer Mike Brooks was there to show you what it's like.
