After 26 years in business, Snookies on Oak Lawn Avenue is closing. The bar and restaurant was created by Gene Street, who also owns Lucky’s and created Black-eyed Pea and Good Eats.
I heard from several people that the restaurant lost its lease. Rumors are that the building will be torn down and replaced with something, well, newer and bigger. After all, the building is more than 20 years old, so it violates Dallas zoning ordinances that prohibit buildings that old in the city.
The closing party is on Friday, May 29 and Snookies will close for good on Sunday, May 31.
