Perched atop Mockingbird Station in Dallas, Texas, sits The People’s Last Stand, where, in addition to a wide selection of craft brews and hand-selected wines, the menu balances classic cocktails with unique and flavorful inventions created from fresh-squeezed juices and house-made syrups, infusions and mixers. And behind the bar at The People’s Last Stand is Michael Sturdivant.
Born and raised in the Dallas area, Sturdivant has studied classic cocktail techniques, but is also on the cutting edge of up-and-coming trends. He has been churning out innovative cocktails at The People’s Last Stand since November of 2013.

What is the atmosphere like on an average night at The People’s Last Stand?
During the week we usually keep the atmosphere relaxed, but we take cues from the guests as to what they want. We have a relatively cozy space, consisting of a patio, a general area (with high tables, normal tables, booths, and the bar), and a lounge with couches and large chairs. We have happy hour specials Monday through Friday, with reduced prices for beer, wine, and classic cocktails, but Monday through Wednesday we do additional discounts, like half-off food or happy hour all day. That being said, we get a nice little early pop from happy hour, but we are most busy around seven and later.
