The Original Building

A Family Affair

Dickson Street Liquor, a mainstay in Fayetteville’s Dickson Street Entertainment District has always had a comfortable family feel. Generations of locals and University of Arkansas Students have frequented DSL over the past 50 years. Patrons and employees fondly remember Bernice and Clarance from the 60’s through the 90’s. Bernice along with Georges Majestic Lounge’s Ms.Mary, Maxine from the Tap Room and the Collier family from Collier Drug were the main threads of the fabric that first made Dickson Street unique and special.

The iconic building that has housed Dickson Street Liquor store since 1964 is one of the most recognizable structures in downtown Fayetteville. It originally opened in 1936 as Fayetteville’s ‘Newest and Finest Conoco Service Station’. Our entryway was once the location of the service garage door and the vaulted ceilings just inside allowed room for the car lift to operate. While there have been many expansions and additions over the years, the original building’s recognizable profile and structural integrity remains unchanged.

Much has changed over the years, but one thing has not: the friendly and funky ambiance found here. The spirit of Dickson Street is alive and well at Dickson Street Liquor!

Legend Has It

In 1968 the famed group, The Band released ‘The Weight’, a song whose lyrics were penned by world famous local musician Levon Helm. “ Crazy Chester followed me and caught me in the fog ....”references a colorful Fayetteville local who patrolled Dickson Street to ‘keep the peace’. Legend has it that Chester, armed with his two cap gun pistols would always check on Dickson Street Liquor and secure ‘provisions’ while on his regular Dickson Street ‘patrols’.
