Halcyon Coffee Bar + Lounge Expands to Dallas

Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Austin-based coffee and cocktail bar on first Dallas location

Dallas, March 20, 2017 – Dallas-based Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Halcyon Coffee Bar + Lounge on a five-year, 3,600-square foot lease for its first location in the concept’s expansion to Dallas. Halcyon Coffee Bar + Lounge has officially opened at 2900 Greenville Avenue, formerly the location of Cafe Brazil for the past ten years. Michael Walters, President of Falcon’s Restaurant & Entertainment Group, and Madison Partners’ Jon Hetzel negotiated the deal.

“It was important to Falcon to understand Halcyon’s vision and find a space that catered to their versatile coffee and cocktail lounge concept, while also capturing the authenticity of their brand,” said Walters. “The location we secured has accomplished that – the building’s architecture has a unique story and the neighborhood surrounding Greenville Avenue is incredibly energetic.”

Founded in 2001 by partners John Long and Kris Hardy, the Austin-based coffee bar and lounge has a location in San Antonio and San Diego.

“We love the lower Greenville community and Halcyon’s coffee shop and cocktail bar fusion concept had yet to exist in the area. Unlike many coffeehouse interiors that are outfitted with dark wood and metal, Halcyon’s design aesthetic is bright and playful,” said Kris Hardy, Co-Owner of Halcyon Coffee Bar + Lounge. “Moving into a new city is exciting and also nerve-racking, but we’re confident our first Dallas store will expand upon the success we’ve been able to achieve in Austin and elsewhere over the last 15 years.”

In addition to Halcyon’s staple menu consisting of coffee, alcoholic beverages, snacks, salads, sandwiches and dessert, the Dallas menu will also feature flatbreads and an expanded brunch menu.

Falcon’s Restaurant and Entertainment Group represents many flourishing emerging brands, such as Grub Burger Bar, Pink Taco, Publico Kitchen & Tap, Modern Market and Bulla Gastrobar. Other clients in Falcon’s impressive portfolio consist of top chain retailers, including Whole Foods, Junior’s Restaurant and Bakery, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Twin Peaks and iPic Theaters.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken Expands to Atlanta

Exclusive representative Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Nashville-based concept on first Atlanta location in its expansion

Dallas, December 8, 2016 – Dallas-based Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Nashville-based Hattie B’s Hot Chicken on a 2,800-square foot lease for its first Atlanta location in the concept’s expansion. Expected to open late 2017, Hattie B’s will be located just south of Little Five Points at 299 Moreland Ave., which was originally occupied by a 1950s era iconic Phillips 66 gas station. Cal Marsh, Director of National Restaurant Accounts with Falcon’s Restaurant & Entertainment Group, and Ed lee of Capital Properties Group negotiated the deal with Knight Commercial Real Estate.

“Expanding to Atlanta was an easy decision as Hattie B’s has not only made waves among the communities it currently resides in, but among renowned industry food festivals across the nation – including the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival,” said Marsh. “Hattie B’s requires a space that will align with its fun, high-energy concept and as Hattie B’s exclusive representative in its expansion, Falcon will ensure each location reflects that unique quality.”

Selected as Hattie B’s exclusive representative for the company’s regional growth, Marsh advised on the Moreland Ave. location for its dynamic neighborhood and the ease of accessibility it provides due to the property’s 20 parking spots and the large public lot located next door. The new location will offer seating for 150 diners indoors and outdoors on a partially covered patio and an area for outdoor games such as cornhole.

“The minute we saw the building on Moreland, we knew it was the right spot for Hattie B’s. From the architecture and design, to the energy in the neighborhood, it just felt like the place for us in Atlanta,” said co-owner and co-operator Nick Bishop, Jr.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is a family-owned business, owned and operated by father-and-son team, Nick Bishop, Sr. and Nick Bishop, Jr. The restaurant first opened in Midtown Nashville in August 2012 and currently has a total of two locations in Nashville and one in Birmingham, Ala. Hattie B’s is renowned nationally for its Nashville hot chicken served with increasing levels of heat (including “hot,” “damn hot” and “shut the cluck up!!!”) and was recently ranked sixth on the The Daily Meal’s list of America’s 75 Best Fried Chicken Spots.

Falcon’s Restaurant and Entertainment Group represents many flourishing emerging brands, such as Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Pink Taco, Publico Kitchen & Tap, Modern Market and Bulla Gastrobar. Other clients in Falcon’s impressive portfolio consist of top chain retailers, including Whole Foods, Junior’s Restaurant and Bakery, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Twin Peaks and iPic Theaters.

In addition to medical retail, Crowley will assist with real estate strategy on behalf of Falcon’s restaurant and entertainment clients. Crowley previously served as the Vice President of Development at Rainier Medical Investments where he was responsible for brokerage services for all development projects, which included negotiating leases for more than 200,000-square feet of medical office product.

Prior to joining Rainier Medical Investments, Crowley was a spine sales specialist for Nuvasive Inc and a top sales representative for two Johnson & Johnson-owned companies Ethicon Inc and Janseen Pharmaceuticals, where Crowley received the “Regional Representative of the Year and Glamour Award” and “Regional Rookie of the Year Award,” respectively.

Crowley holds a master’s degree in Strategy/Entrepreneurship & Marketing at Southern Methodist University and a bachelor’s degree in International Trade & Finance from Louisiana State University.
