The Walk-In will be a basement bar located in the Davis Building. It comes from the same partners behind the Mitchell, who are also busy at work opening new Deep Ellum spot On Premise. (Details about that one here.)
The Walk-In will be a restaurant and bar. On the restaurant side of things, chef Brian Zenner (formerly of Oak and Belly & Trumpet) has plans for a butcher shop with charcuterie specials. On the bar side of things, the Walk-In will be a casual cocktail spot with part of its lounge located inside a bank vault. Back in the early- and mid-1900s, the basement was one of several levels operated by the "largest bank in the south," Republic Bank, according to a historical plaque.
Being underground will give the Walk-In a New York feel, says co-owner Adam Salazar.
