Realty Capital Management, LLC, master developer of Lakeside DFW, announced Friday the addition of three new businesses to The Shops at Lakeside at FM 2499 and Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound: Gusto Wine Bar, The Tavern at Lakeside and The Med Spa of Flower Mound.
“Our residents and visitors have been enthusiastically asking for businesses like these for quite some time,” said Jimmy Archie, Developer for Lakeside. “We received their message, recruited hard, and are delighted to announce The Shops at Lakeside will be bringing these amenities to the community later this year.”
Located next door to Mio Nonno Trattoria, Gusto Wine Bar will be a cozy wine bar that provides an assortment of wine and food pairings for guests to enjoy. The wine bar will offer patrons tastings with wine makers as well as an on-site sommelier eager to give guests an education on their pairings. For those wondering about the name, “Gusto” means “to taste” in Italian.
Gusto will be owned and operated by Noti Krasniqi and Sunny Malaj, who also brought Mio Nonno to the Lakeside development.
“We feel fortunate to be so well-received by Flower Mound and the surrounding communities,” said Krasniqi. “Bringing a need that’s been communicated to us, by those who support the growth of Lakeside, is a mission we are honored to take on.”
The Tavern at Lakeside is another business opening later this year. Owned and operated by two Flower Mound residents, Dave Coussirat and Scott Mannes, The Tavern at Lakeside will offer a broad range of American fare and a variety of 20+ craft beers, cocktails and wine.
A large bar with garage doors will invite guests to sit at the bar outside and view a sports game from one of the 16 TV’s inside The Tavern. With a dog-friendly patio and an abundance of bike parking, The Tavern at Lakeside is the perfect spot to enjoy a craft beer after a bike ride on the North Shore Trail. A Bloody Mary bar and $2 mimosas will be offered to the weekend brunch crowd.
The Tavern at Lakeside will be located at 2600 Lakeside Parkway, Ste. 100 and will be open until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight on Friday and Saturday.
“The Tavern at Lakeside is exactly what this community is craving: a place to enjoy a cold beer and burger with friends or a place to stop in after dinner at night.” said Coussirat. “We thought there was a need for our concept in Lakeside and the outpouring of support we have already received before an official announcement has been made has certainly increased our excitement for opening our concept.”
The addition of a Med Spa adds to the mix of retail service providers in Lakeside. The Med Spa of Flower Mound, currently located at 3051 Churchill Drive in Flower Mound, will offer services such as: cosmetic injections; laser treatments; Hydrafacials; Coolsculpting; and, skin resurfacing and tightening.
“We take a conservative approach to bring out our client’s own natural outer beauty utilizing the most up to date products and technologies,” said Phil Rodgers, owner of The Med Spa at Flower Mound. “We provide an atmosphere that makes each and every client feel like family. Our staff is highly-trained in every procedure in our full-range of non-invasive offerings,”
“We have chosen the Lakeside development because we feel like it offers a sense of community that fits our family of staff and clients,” added Rodgers.
