Acclaimed Chef David Bull Brings Second Bar and Kitchen to Mineral Wells' Historic Crazy Water Hotel

Revitalizing Mineral Wells: La Corsha Hospitality Group and Chef Bull Embrace Local Wellness Culture with New Culinary Experience

Crazy Water Hotel Culinary Experience

Acclaimed Chef David Bull, who claimed to never leave Austin or live in a small town again, has found himself drawn to Mineral Wells and is preparing to open a Second Bar and Kitchen in the historic Crazy Water Hotel. Bull is a member of La Corsha Hospitality Group, a company known for successfully bringing new life to historic hotels like The Driskill in Austin and The St. Anthony in San Antonio.

La Corsha Hospitality Group is also involved in renovating the Baker Hotel and Spa around the corner from the Crazy Water. They have been drawn to the historic architecture and rich history of Mineral Wells, taking on extensive renovation projects within The Crazy Water Hotel, including its basement spa and mineral baths, and transforming its fifth floor from apartments to hotel rooms.

The Mineral Wells version of Second Bar and Kitchen will be located in the Crazy Water Hotel's lobby, adjusting its menu to fit the local culture and wellness-focused cuisine of the area. Chef Bull emphasizes that the menu will offer options for every diet, including gluten- and dairy-free dishes alongside more traditional Southern fare.

In addition to offering top-notch dining experiences, La Corsha Hospitality Group envisions The Crazy as a launching pad for Mineral Wells' other health and wellness attractions, such as state parks, local gardens, unique retail outlets, and the town's famous healing waters.

For those familiar with the Second Bar and Kitchen, they can expect a soft opening in mid-summer, with Chef Bull hoping for June but more likely in July. This new location will bring the unique culinary experience to Mineral Wells residents and visitors alike, enriching the already robust wellness offerings in this historic town.

Ultimately, despite his initial hesitations, Chef David Bull has embraced the small-town charm of Mineral Wells. He notes that this project is about highlighting what already exists in the area, describing it as a "pretty spectacular place." Residents and visitors alike can look forward to enjoying the new Second Bar and Kitchen and experiencing the continued revitalization of the Crazy Water Hotel and Mineral Wells area (source: The Weatherford Democrat).
