Liberty Bank Building
The two-story Italianate building, constructed in 1899, retains its original red brick and exterior black column.
After moving the historic Liberty Bank building brick by brick to 600 S. Harwood, directly behind Ruibals nursery, the husband and wife team behind Uncle Uber’s in Deep Ellum have opened Green Door Public House as of July 7th, 2014.
It is the only freestanding restaurant in the Farmer’s Market, conveniently
located a few short blocks from the heart of downtown and Deep Ellum, and highlighted by a 1,200 sq. ft.
shaded patio with great views of downtown. The Green Door Public House occupies the first floor of the
twostory brick building built in the late 1800’s. Its history includes four saloons during the early 1900’s and
was remodeled and occupied by Liberty Bank in the 1920’s when prohibition began. During prohibition,
speakeasy owners would paint their doors green to alert customers that they had the “goods.” Guests will
feel immediately welcomed by the intimate décor and comeasyouare environment. This new refuge for
food and spirits will not only appeal to our urban neighbors but also to those visiting the Farmer’s Market.
The menu ranges from cheddar fries and crispy buffalo wings, to salmon skewers and the soon to be a
signature breaded portobello sandwich. Serving local beers and creating handcrafted cocktails inspired by a
time when bartending was not just a profession but an art form. It is a place to step out of modern life for an
afternoon or evening and unwind with great conversation and friends. The Green Door Public House
embraces that nostalgia and charm, fortunately without all the annoyance of periodic police raids.
