It’s last call for some bars as Dallas’ Lakewood area morphs


http://www.dallasnews.com/news/commu...rea-morphs.ece

“...You have a neighborhood that’s being revitalized by a lot of new and expensive houses,” said Craig Kinney, the majority owner for properties now leased to the Lakewood Theater, Matt’s Rancho Martinez, the Balcony Club and the Lakewood Tavern. “The demographics have been getting better and better. And that’s what drives everything.”

"...It’s like a small town in the middle of Dallas,” said L.K. Pierotti, who lives in Lakewood and often goes to the Lakewood Tavern. “They’re trying to turn us into an Uptown or a West Village. And that’s just not what we are.”

Where is the "hate it" button.
Lakewood Tavern is one of our favorite places. I hate to see them go. I don't want to have to valet park just to have a beer.

What an insulting, snobbish comment. There goes the neighborhood.... possibly.

Damn. I knew that Mi Cocina was a sign of bad things to come. Nothing against Mi Cocina or the M Crowd, but the restaurant was a bad fit for Old Lakewood/East Dallas, and the fact that it wanted in here showed New Lakewood/East Dallas taking over. I suspect after all of the Lakewood Shopping Center is converted to more expensive mostly chain places it will be Skillman/Live Oaks turn next. I'm bracing for the end of the Pour House, Cosmos, Molly Maguires, and horror of horrors Gold Rush. I don't know how I would survive without Gold Rush.

Or Highland Park East. I talk to so many people looking in the Lakewood area, after being unable to afford a place in Preston Hollow or Highland Park. A friend who is second generation locally told me that Lakewood is gradually turning from where East Dallas moves when they finally make money, into where new Dallasites move until the can afford the Park Cities. Obviously not true for everyone, but I think true enough to change the flavour of East Dallas. Lakewood may only be a small part of East Dallas, but it is the part with money and that is what matters when it comes to defining a district.

Not to suggest that everyone who moves to Lakewood fits that type. Nor is this to suggest there is something wrong with Preston Hollow, or people who would like to live there. I just don't want that culture taking over here. I'm sure they would feel the same way about the East Dallas culture taking over there.

Lakewood is already pretty far up its own backside. Won't be long before it reaches flashover point and becomes every bit as douchey as Preston Hollow.

That is my husband's favorite place. I would guess most "Parkies" wouldn't be caught dead in there but it is pretty awesome and very "east Dallas"

Um, thanks? How many Lakewoodians do you actually know in person because that doesn't fit many that I know.
