Upscale Dallas BBQ Closes

“Acclaimed chef-owned 18th & Vine BBQ in Uptown Dallas to close after over 7 years due to construction impact on business, according to a CultureMap Dallas article. They say, 


“A barbecue restaurant in Uptown Dallas from an acclaimed chef is closing: 18th & Vine BBQ, which has been dishing out chef-caliber brisket and more, will close after more than seven years.


According to a spokesperson, the restaurant will close on Saturday, June 17.


“We’re disappointed, but with the ongoing construction across the street, we’re not able to provide our loyal team with the kind of income opportunities they deserve, there’s just not enough business,” the spokesperson said.”


The barbecue restaurant, 18th & Vine, is closing due to “outside factors,” including construction at Old Parkland impacting business. Nearby Grapevine Bar is also relocating for the same reason, according to a Dallas Morning News article. In it they report,


“A farewell note on Facebook says 18th & Vine is closing “due to outside factors.” A spokesperson told CultureMap there’s “not enough business” to remain open.


Construction at Old Parkland has been a problem for the restaurant, the spokesperson said. The complaint is similar to that from the owners of nearby Grapevine Bar. After more than 25 years on Maple Avenue, the Grapevine Bar is moving to a new address, away from the Old Parkland construction zone, D magazine reports.”


The restaurant expressed gratitude to its Kansas City alumni community for the memories and invites fans for a final BBQ celebration until June 17.
