Thomas Avenue Beverage Company Has Closed

The Thomas Avenue Beverage Company has served its last beer in Uptown. A series of signs on the doors indicates non-payment of rent followed by a note from owner Russell Hayward that the spot is now closed.

Hayward has dabbled in a variety of local restaurants, including Tom Tom and Lazare in the West Village. TABC offered cold beer and good food in a laid-back setting, including a recently popular sushi menu.

Hayward isn't done in Dallas though. He's now dabbling in the coffeehouse business. Not just any ol' coffee shop though. Hayward is the proud papa of that $20,000 Synesso Hydra Hybrid espresso machine at Ascension Coffee. The Observer staff has given a very solid effort in assessing its worthiness. And then some. Really? A $20,000 coffee machine?

It'll be interesting to see what pops up in the old TABC spot next...
