The nightlife impresarios of Carmac Concepts celebrate 15 years of success with a launch at The Domain.
Chad Womack, Jason Carrier, and Brad Womack of Carmack Concepts are responsible for The Dogwood bar brand on West Sixth Street, in Houston, and in its latest iteration at the Domain.
The beginning: Twin brothers Brad and Chad Womack met Jason Carrier in 2000 while bartending on Sixth Street, and they founded Austin-based hospitality team Carmack Concepts the following year.
Bar roster: The Chuggin’ Monkey, The Dizzy Rooster, The Dogwood brand.
Latest project: Dogwood Rock Rose at The Domain’s new development.
Local ties: “The Dogwood West Sixth is a staple in Austin nightlife,” says Carrier, who adds that the second locale in Houston and the third at The Domain are similar but with some upgrades.
Strategic move: The Domain’s Rock Rose development by Endeavor Real Estate Group will feature 100,000 square feet of mostly local restaurants, bars, and shops when completed by the end of 2016. Says Carrier, “Rock Rose Avenue will be such a unique entertainment district, different from anything else in Austin.”
Best achievement: “It’s rare to be able to love what you do and also be able to do it with your very best friends.”
