Just months after its completion and opening, Lee Harvey’sd Dive Bar is already set up for July’s summer time according to a CultureMap Dallas article from June 19 which reports,
“This urban oasis opened on June 18, in a corner lot at 1315 Beaumont St. that’s been empty for nearly 20 years. At a time when the forecast is three digits indefinitely, it surely feels like a godsend.
The Dive In is centered on an expansive 30-by-60-foot pool, surrounded by container bars, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and cabanas. It boasts a charming retro vibe, with a prototypical ’50s color scheme of aqua — the color of its logo rendered in a handwritten-style cursive font — and red, which surfaces on the cheerful red-and-white-striped canvas curtains that set off each cabana.
Patrons can book a day pass — $15 for adults, $5 for 12 and under — or buy a season membership: $350 for singles, or $500 for a “family” pass allowing two adults and children under 12. The season pass also affords access to the cabanas, which are not open to day-pass holders.”
The owner of Lee Harvey’s—Seth Smith—is very confident in the ambiance and atmosphere that his dive pool has as it will be far different from any other pools or dive bars in the area according to a CultureMap Dallas article. They say,
“There’ll be an open sunning lawn, with patches of shade from surrounding trees,” says Lee Harvey’s owner Seth Smith. “Members can reserve furnished cabanas and chaise-lounges with umbrellas.”
It’ll come with a full bar with cocktails, beer on ice, and food: “fresh summer eats from the kitchen,” he says.
Table service will available throughout the club.
“It’ll be a really nice place — not a dive like Lee Harvey’s,” Smith says. “You won’t be getting any splinters from the benches.”
Lee Harvey’s will be open every day from 11 AM to 10 PM but children will only be allowed until 5 PM.
