Popular Wine Bar to permanently close after 15 years of business
The Veritas Wine Room, a popular spot on Henderson Avenue in Dallas, is set to shut its doors around mid- to late-December 2023, as confirmed by its co-owners.
Initially, the wine shop had planned to close in March 2023. However, co-owners and brothers Brooks and Bradley Anderson negotiated with their landlord, allowing them to extend their stay until the year’s end.
After 15 years, the Anderson brothers have decided not to relocate Veritas, signaling that it’s time for the final round of drinks at this beloved venue. Brooks Anderson has assured that all planned events, including a wine dinner on November 26 featuring former Meridian chef Junior Borges, will go ahead as scheduled.
In the lead-up to its closing, Brooks mentions that the shop will be selling a vast selection of wines, featuring some rare bottles that have been part of their collection since the shop’s opening over 15 years ago.
Veritas first opened its doors on Henderson Avenue during the street’s prime time. It witnessed the opening of the neighboring restaurant Gemma a few years later, which has recently renewed its lease and undergone a redesign. For Veritas, this era of significant changes on Henderson Avenue marks an end of an era.
The Canadian company Joey is set to introduce a pub named Local Public Eatery at the same strip center as Veritas. Brooks notes that the construction for this new establishment has presented challenges. Located at 2323 N. Henderson Ave. in Dallas, Veritas Wine Room will continue to welcome guests until its closure in late 2023.
