Bank notes: A long-vacant bank building in Texas City is soon to get a new life. Eric Torres is preparing to open Pallet Bar & Grill in the former Texas City National Bank, 701 6th St. N.
The 20,000-square-foot building, constructed in 1937, has been vacant for at least two decades, Torres said. The Pallet Bar & Grill will occupy about 3,000 square feet, serving craft beers and mixed beverages, along with appetizers and bar fare. It also will feature an outdoor bar area.
