A new bar and mobile vendor food court is on the way to RR 12 north of downtown Dripping Springs near Springlake Drive.

Located on a 1.2-acre property at 29035 RR 12, Dripping Springs, the project includes a small indoor bar with seating, an outdoor patio, and space for about four food trucks or mobile vendors. The project will also have about 40 parking spaces, according to documents presented to Dripping Springs City Council on May 12 by developer Neil Stokes.

Stokes said the development has been in the works since 2017. It initially received city approval three years ago, but recent work around the property by neighboring projects that moved more quickly has resulted in a few changes, and some renewals were required.

City Council unanimously approved permits for the project allowing alcohol sales and food trucks May 12 with restrictions to help address potential concerns by nearby residential properties.

According to the council’s motion, those restrictions include ending bar service by 11 p.m. and closing by midnight and ending amplified outdoor music by 7 p.m. each night. Permits could be revoked if nuisance reports are filed by neighbors and found to be valid by the city.

“I’m just excited for more food options in Dripping Springs,” Stokes said.
