Husband and wife team Jen and Marty Reyes set off on the quest to bring a tropical escape to Dallas in 2015. When the brick and mortar dream seemed too far out of reach, Marty came up with a plan to get Swizzle's name out there by doing Tiki pop-ups. The first was in May of 2016. They were delighted to meet other tikiphiles and guests who shared their passion for tropical cocktails and immersive experiences.
As the years went on, the search for a “home” grew and so did the events. The duo and their incredible team of talented bartenders soon started producing Dallas Tiki Week with the Dallas USBG and found an even wider tiki audience across the great state of Texas.
In 2019 their dream finally came true and they found a place they could call home. Swizzle opened on Lower Greenville in November of 2020.
We are a Beachcomber bar focusing on telling the story of the history of Tiki Art, the craft of tropical cocktails, where these ideas came from and where they are headed in our modern culture. Our walls are decorated with artists old and new to showcase these transitions and our menu too starts with, “classics” and moves to original cocktails to tell that story similar to the way Donn the Beachcomber once did.
From the food to the drinks, this mom and pop business, and its talented team of Swizzle-nauts, uses hand crafted ingredients and made from scratch recipes (some which have been passed down through our family) creating unique and fresh flavors for your palate. We hope it creates new and amazing memories with your friends and family.
We invite you to escape the ordinary with us!
