For those looking for a place to beat the heat while enjoying a patio atmosphere, The Tipperary Inn has a solution. The Lakewood bar’s newest addition is an open-air space complete with a “mist-er” system and air conditioning, and it offers a little more legroom than the restaurant’s original patio area. Wanting to reach out to more customers, The Tipp will feature “younger, hipper” bands on the patio instead of the traditional Irish music in the front room. “Patios are popular in Dallas since the weather is nice 9 or 10 months out of the year,” explains Tim Russi, one of the owners, about the decision to improve upon the original patio. “We have a widespread demographic, so we offer something for everybody.” Sure to leave not even the furry out, the patio also allows for seating along the sidewalk for Tipperary goers with thirsty pets.
