SSP America, an SSP Group division, has celebrated the opening of a branch of the famous Flying Saucer pub at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s (DFW) Terminal D.
The new Flying Saucer is presented over two levels, the lower level space serving as a full-service gastropub and the upper level as a full-service bar with live music performances. A rotating roster of 40 draught tap handles can be found both upstairs and downstairs, with an additional 52 brand options offered by the bottle. For hungry travelers, the Flying Saucer offers a range of shareable plates, hamburgers, tacos, fish and chips, as well as regionally sourced specialty bratwursts.
Kyle Phillips, SSP America’s senior director, business development, said, “Dallas Fort/Worth and North Texas welcomes the world at DFW. The Flying Saucer offers passengers a true, only-in-DFW, authentic local experience. Featuring a formidable range of beers rarely seen in an airport location, as well as live music performances from leading local and regional musicians, these two wholly unique concepts deliver a sense of place bar none. SSP America is proud to partner with and showcase the country’s very best local brands.”
Local restauranteur Shannon Wynne opened the original Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Fort Worth in 1995. Flying Saucer can be found in 15 different cities across six states.
