Our Owners – The Kelcher Brothers
Just out of college, most kids begin searching for the first job to start their career, but not Mark and Dirk Kelcher. They decided to create their own career, embarking on a journey which has taken them to heights they never imagined. With what began as living the dream of every kid in their 20’s, Mark and Dirk Kelcher turned the dream into a reality and life-long career venture. The Kelcher Brothers started their first bar, Jack’s Pub and Volleyball Club, in 1994, giving them the knowledge and experience needed for their next 20 years in the food and beverage industry.
After selling Jack’s Pub in 2006, Mark and Dirk Kelcher followed their love of music to their next two ventures, the Gypsy Tea Room and Inferno Lounge. With many of their staff members from Jack’s Pub, the Kelcher Brothers took the live music venues to new heights, allowing them to use their business and finance educations to build the businesses to a level at which they could sell to bigger companies for a sizeable profit.
Mark and Dirk Kelcher have made a huge splash in the festival & event circuit in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex over the last 20 years, working their way into the coveted position of being the go-to name for some of the largest festivals in the metroplex. They have successfully catered over one hundred events that were 5,000 people or more, and in a few cases over 150,000 people, including:
- Official Super Bowl Party with the Black Eyed Peas in Dallas
- NBA all star game Dallas
- NBA all star game Houston

Where did the Dallas Kelcher Brothers go next?
Restaurants of course! Because their experience was surrounded around liquor and music, Mark and Dirk Kelcher joined forces with the owners of The Green Room in order to expand their knowledge and learn from some of the best in the business, while looking for their next venue. They now own and operate 3 restaurants, 2 sports bars, 2 craft beer bars, and 1 catering & concessions company with many more on the horizon.
