DALLAS – Opening day for some DFW franchises at the new Cypress Waters development on the site of what used to be the North Lake Power Plant and cooling reservoir in Coppell.
Annexed by Dallas, remediated and currently under mixed commercial/residential growth, the business park welcomes the Flying Saucer Cypress Waters as the latest in the storied North Texas beer bar chain. It occupies a prime spot within The Sound, the local waterfront entertainment district that opened just this past weekend.
This Flying Saucer is a shift from sister locations in the franchise to modernize a bit and better respond to the local, younger customer base. Counter service replaces the traditional tartan-skirt servers, and the menu will feature lighter, fresher fare such as grain bowls, simple sandwiches and more vegetarian options.
Of course, the tap wall remains among the best in Texas, and full UFO membership is available. Related stores of Rodeo Goat and Flying Fish, all owned by the same parent company, also opened on the same site. This marks the first time all three pillars of 8.0 Management have been located together, and the first time all have opened simultaneously.
