The Beatles. James Bond. The Office. The Black and Tan. Many now legendary American favorites made their start across the pond then skyrocketing to stardom in the States. With them they brought fun, humor, culture and of course, a reason to celebrate. And starting Oct. 30, Dallas will have another reason to raise an Imperial pint to the Queen, when the British Beverage Company opens its doors at 2800 Routh Street in Uptown Dallas.
Bringing together everyone’s British favorites and the best of American approachability, the British Beverage Company is a modern, British-inspired pub in a distinctly American urban setting. Whether you’re craving true fish and chips or a cool crafted cocktail, BBC has an option for you. Designed to be enjoyed with business colleagues at lunch, friends after work, or girls’ night out, the eclectic menu includes classic British standards as well as surprisingly approachable American fare, which are easily paired with a great glass of wine or a royal-sized Imperial pint.
A taste of the menu includes:
Scotch Egg – Hard-boiled quail egg and English style sausage rolled in seasoned bread crumbs then fried. Served with Branston pickle, horseradish potato, and whole grain mustard.
Beer Steamed Mussels – Fresh mussels steamed in beer with garlic, sausage, and herb butter.

What to eat is only part of the fun at the British Beverage Co. With 45 wines and champagnes available daily by the glass, 50 beers on draught, 100 bottled beers, full service bar, and private party service, you and your chaps will want to stay for more than just a jaunt at the British Beverage Company. While beer is a quintessential part of a British pub experience, the BBC serves up several specialty cocktails you’ll be hard to find anywhere else outside of the UK, like the apropos Claret Tea Cup, the legendary Barrel of Monkeys, his highness himself, Prince Albert, and our ode to Texas with the Rawhide! and a Blow Torch Margarita.
Created with the utmost hospitality in mind, traditional tables, bar stools, soft seating, comfortable lounge areas, communal tables, and two large courtyard patios perfect for any season, you’ll always have a seat at the BBC. And always remember: the British don’t need a reason to celebrate, so every night you’ll hear from some of the best live bands and coolest DJs in Dallas. No matter the day or the night, it’s always a bloody good time at the British Beverage Company.
