There’s nothing quite like a local haunt. The kind of place where everyone knows your name, your order and most importantly what you’re drinking. For many, one of the most memorable spots in Dallas during it’s hey-day was Chelsea Corner. The watering hole opened in the 70’s and quickly earned it’s way into the hearts and pocketbooks of Dallas’ nightlife crowd but like many other beloved spots, it closed far too soon.
Originally opened in 1974, Chelsea Corner is once again at its original location on the iconic corner of McKinney Avenue & Monticello. Our historic building was first constructed in 1926 and has been completely restored over the past year. With a focus on rich heritage and the intent to establish an iconic and long-lasting Dallas landmark – Chelsea Corner is something truly special within Dallas’s flourishing Knox Neighborhood.
During our invited dinner, we had a chance to get familiar with the bites and sips that Chelsea Corner is bringing back into the spotlight. Big Daddy’s White pizza comes loaded with fresh ricotta, oven dried roma tomatoes and grilled chicken on a wonderfully crispy crust. The hearty “Barnyard” ‘za comes with pepperoni, canadian bacon, ricotta, mozzarella, spicy italian sausage. It’s not all bar food though, Pamela’s Fish Tacos are filled with flaky and light market fresh fish, either fried or grilled, in corn tortillas or bib lettuce shells with asian slaw on top. There are burgers, salads and even a few sharable items to pass around as well!
Go see how this Dallas landmark has come full circle. Meet you at the corner!
