Typically, that would sound ridiculous.
But tonight’s a different story.
Because here comes Truth & Alibi, a Deep Ellum cocktail lounge that’s hiding behind a candy shop facade. It’s soft-opening tonight.
Right, so if you see the candy shop entrance, you’re in the right place. But since you’re the it’s-what’s-inside-that-counts type, know that what’s inside is a stunning room lined with red-and-gold wallpaper, high-backed sofas and white leather benches. Plus a bar that’s doling out a mix of classic and not-classic cocktails so you’ve got something to do besides enjoy the furniture.
To get in, you’ll need a little help. Buzzer on the door, password, that whole thing. So follow their Facebook page for the password (it changes each week). Then swing through with a troupe of companions who like Moscow Mules and tequila sours and gin drinks laced with tarragon and cucumber-melon soda.
Also: there’s no food yet, but it’s coming down the road. So until then, they’ve partnered with the Deep Sushi guys next door to keep you fed.
Wonder what those guys serve...
