BarYard Summer Sessions

Event Details

It’s kind of nice out there, right? We think so. That’s why we’ll be hosting special soirées in our backyard this summer. We’re planning to bring some of the best local Djs and mixologist to make your experience in our backyard memorable. We’ll be starting with an old time WD collaborator at the decks, Tony Schwa, and an Oak Cliff cocktails master legend, Jones Long –she used to run Bolsa’s cocktail program– chosen by Culture Map among the top 10 bartenders in town.

Tony Schwa
Tony Schwa is a DJ who originated in small Allentown, Pennsylvania and then moved to Dallas. His father owned a record shop which influenced Schwa’s musical career later in life. Resident DJ of Dallas’ notorious Cool Out party since 2007. You can also find him slingin’ Disco, Funk, Boogie, Salsa and everything in between every 1st Friday at Off the Record (Deep Ellum). Schwa has been praised in the Dallas Observer for his, “tropical sounds” and is mentioned in D Magazine in that “If you build it, they will come. Cool out founder, Tony Schwa is proof.”

Listen to Tony Schwa here.

Jones Long
Jones came to Dallas about 7 years ago and landed a job opening up Scotch & Sausage where she was able to transform her quick bartending skills to craft bartending working alongside seasoned veterans. She quickly climbed up the ranks and then went on to open four other concepts. Working in all types of bars, she can quickly transform her bartending techniques to fit in anywhere. Her introduction to Oak Cliff started at Bolsa, where she was promoted to run their cocktail program and where she became known as one of the top bartenders in Dallas.
