A haven for Dallas' least modest bikini-wearing socialites, Sisu's multiple bars and DJ booth make the large lounge the perfect location for the dozens of year-round fashion shows, DJ spinoffs and raffle events it hosts.

  • 7th Haven

    2929 Crockett St. Fort Worth

    817-820-0909

    Arguably the best rooftop bar in town, 7th Haven makes up for in drink prices what it lacks in panache. Always a place to find a good special, the place is dark and smoky. But with a back patio and roof complete with side bar, there's plenty of space for fresh air too. Paintings of Jim Morrison, Lenny Kravitz and Bob Marley adorn the walls, and two big screens stream sports news and entertainment all night. Booth and table seating complement the long bar, manned by a friendly staff, and best of all, Taco Heads taco stand provides great food late nights Wednesday through Saturday on the back deck.
  • Aardvark

    2905 W. Berry St. Fort Worth

    817-926-7814

    Located around the corner from Texas Christian University, it's no surprise this rock club has Greek appeal. But housed in the same historic strip that was home to The Hop and Rail, it books the best locals in the Golden Triangle, plus the occasional road show.

  • Abbey Inn Restaurant & Pub

    101 W. Hickory Denton

    940-566-5483

    Located on the southeast corner of Denton's Historic Courthouse Square, The Abbey Inn is one of Little D's most popular English pubs. And in keeping with a traditional English pub theme, the beer tap is crammed with imported ales and lagers. Not quite so authentically British is their serving temperature: a frosty 29 degrees. Judging by the beer selection and decor, it's clear that the owners have put a lot of thought into the details of the place, including antique 19th Century church pews. Looking for a brunch spot? Head to Abbey Inn for $2 mimosas on Sundays.
  • The Abbey Underground

    100 W. Walnut St. Denton

    940-565-5478

    The Denton square is full of spots tailored to meet the boozing needs of college kids at the nearby University of North Texas campus. The Abby Underground is no exception, but it does offer a different look and feel thanks to its – hence the name – underground location. There’s plenty of room to move around, and pool tables on which to pass the time if you’re not ordering shots at the wide wooden bar located in the adjacent room. The green paint on the walls serves a dual purpose, attracting students with the University’s colors and livening up this otherwise dark basement watering hole.

  • Absinthe Lounge

    1409 S. Lamar, #008 Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-941-9338

    Just south of downtown Dallas, Absinthe Lounge is one of several watering hole options. But there's something delightfully sinister about Absinthe. For one, the drink of the same name only recently became legal in the United States, and Absinthe Lounge takes great pride in the way it serves it. There's a whole ritual involved: the pour, melting the sugar, and adding the water from a specialized dispensary that looks, much like the rest of the bar, like it came from 19th century France. The lighting is low and smoky, which may or may not come from the cigars sold behind the bar.

  • Across The Street Bar

    5625 SMU Blvd. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-363-0660

    The Across the Street Bar was named for its location on SMU Boulevard on the other side of Central Expressway from Southern Methodist University, and the auto-garage-turned-bar-and-venue does see its fair share of college students. But it also draws folks from the surrounding area. This Upper Greenville no-frills bar, venue and billiards parlor is in a great location that's seen a recent facelift with several new lofts, restaurants and businesses moving into the area. And, like its sister bar, SMU Boulevard Ice House, Across the Street Bar is known for its cheap pitchers of draft beer. The bar regularly features local musicians and acts on its stage, and for more than 15 years the bar has hosted drum jams on Wednesday nights.

  • Adair's Saloon

  • Akai

    1740 Crockett St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-444-5357

    Let us be perfectly clear: There’s no such thing as a speakeasy anymore. Alcohol is legal again, and if you didn’t know that, we hope the rock you live under is air-conditioned. When it comes to bars based on speakeasy vibes, though, Akai is the best. To get there, a Musume staff member will guide you into the restaurant kitchen and through a cinderblock passage to the sexy backroom that is Akai. A red dragon hangs from the dark ceiling over red benches lit by warm red lights (akai is the Japanese word for “red”). The cocktails are intricate and beautifully presented. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more New York-style (not really) speakeasy in Dallas.
  • Alamo Club

    1919 Greenville Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    469-399-7600

    The Alamo Club feels like it’s always been a part of Lower Greenville despite having opened in 2019. Owner Austin Rogers can often be found running food, taking orders and sometimes bussing tables at the classy Dallas club. The Alamo Club is billed as a cozy spot fit for any occasion, a quiet date night, an outing with the family or drinks with friends. To make sure patrons don’t go hungry, Rogers enlisted the help of English chef Michale West. The menu is filled with mouth-watering apps for the table and entrees like the Club Cheese Burger ($13) and the Pot Roast Pappardelle ($20).

  • Allure

    2224 Elm St. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    The area in downtown Dallas west of Central Expressway — across the freeway from Deep Ellum — is a gray area between commerce and nightlife. While the two don’t exactly go together, the dance clubs and corporate highrises seem to coexist here. One good example is Allure, a two-story dance club built into a 100-year old building on Elm Street. From the outside, the building looks like a historical landmark, but on the inside it’s a sleek club with a big dance floor and neon laser lights. The big room upstairs, painted all white, is where ?uestlove from The Roots famously DJed a set for a packed house.
  • Amplified Live

    10261 Technology Boulevard E. Northwest Dallas

    214-350-1904

    Equipped with a full-service restaurant, bar and a music venue, Amplified Live has a big patio area, a private pond and live music. They offer craft and imported beers and your favorite domestics. Amplified, formerly called Gas Monkey, also has a laundry list of appetizers on their menu: fried mac n’ cheese, pulled pork stuffed peppers, wings and Texas style loaded fries with queso, bacon bits and ranch dressing.

  • The Amsterdam Bar

    831 Exposition Ave. Fair Park

    214-827-3433

    The Amsterdam Bar is by far one of the coolest bars in town. It's set up like a European-style bar, with a heavy German and Belgian beer menu. There is vintage fat-tire bicycle that hangs above the entrance. The huge backyard is perfect to sit out and catch the occasional band on warm summer nights.

    122 N. Locust St. Denton

    Located across the street from Denton’s famed Recycled Books is Andy’s Bar. Three bars in one, Andy’s boasts an upstairs cocktail bar called the Paschall Bar with a library vibe, a music venue and a basement bar with more of that signature Denton music and arts feel.

  • Angry Dog

    2726 Commerce St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-4406

    We're reluctant to use the phrase "fancy dive," but Angry Dog is dark with long tables, mismatched chairs and a wooden bar that runs almost the length of the restaurant. The name comes from its specialty – an all-beef hot dog with a choice of toppings. But the burger (which you can build yourself with a menu of extras) and the chicken-fried chicken sandwich are good, too. You'll find out after only a few bites why we've heaped so many awards on them over the years. You can wash down each bite with one of their 80-plus beers or with anything from their full bar. The Angry Dog also serves its own iced tea, which is a combination of raspberry and regular teas blended locally.

  • Anvil Pub

    2638 Elm St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-1271

    For many years, popular dining and drinking areas of Dallas from Uptown to Greenville Avenue have had their share of English-style public houses. But, alas, Deep Ellum has never been able to draw a pub within its midst. That is until Anvil Pub opened in mid-November 2010. Which may explain why – even on the first weekend of its opening – the place already had folks from the Deep Ellum neighborhood proclaiming themselves as "regulars." That first weekend, Anvil Pub still smelled of Home Depot, which coincidentally is where the family who own and operate the pub bought the supplies needed to build Anvil. "Everything but the barstools, the chairs and the metal table bases," came from there, owner Josh Bridges said, while pouring a beer behind the long, dark wood bar. The grease-free "green" kitchen cranks out pub grub ranging from pizzas and wings to "all-natural" burgers from the menu, which boasts lots of vegetarian options.

    917-554-5286

  • Avenu Lounge

    2912 McKinney Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    888-369-1411

    When it comes to McKinney Avenue's stretch of Uptown nightlife, it's impossible to miss Avenu Lounge, an expansive nightclub and lounge that prides itself on its delectable martinis, top-notch DJs and VIP service. On the entryway's red carpet, dozens of young, chicly dressed club-hoppers stand anxiously behind a red rope, not a coat in sight in the wintertime. Show up early if you want first crack at the pricey but well-crafted drinks (especially the martinis), although crowds don't populate the spacious dance floor until just before midnight. If you have a reservation, you can take advantage of the club's several VIP, booth and bottle services. If you don't, and if you're female, plan on getting hit on by some of Uptown's many young bachelors, who frequently flock to Avenu's multiple interior bars.
  • Baby Dolls Saloon

    10250 Shady Trail Northwest Dallas

    214-358-5511

    Years ago, Baby Dolls Saloon moved locations and began boasting "The Legend Lives On." The 37-year-old institution backs up the claim with a roster of more than 200 dancers on any given night. The grand staircase opens onto a bar that sits in the center of the club. The main stage is enormous, and off to the side are smaller audience rooms where the waitresses hang out. Although it has its share of regulars, Baby Dolls is one of the more famous strip clubs in Dallas, and you can count on any number of out-of-towners of all stripes to be there enjoying the show.

  • Back Porch Grill and Tavern

    210 N. Main St. Grapevine

    817-251-8434

    Back Porch Grill & Tavern claims to be "Grapevine's own slice of Nashville with a splash of Texas flavor." That much seems true the second you walk in the doors and hear the unmistakable twang of Nashville country tunes blaring from the laptop of a DJ dressed in full cowboy garb. But the rest of the bar, with its wood-paneled walls and prairie décor, is very much a caricature of an old Texas saloon. So too is the menu, which is loaded with strong drinks, comfort food dinners and lunch options.
  • Backdoor Comedy

    8250 N. Central Expressway East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-328-4444

    Bare bones comedy club on the eastern edge of downtown. Ample parking thanks to the hotel. Intimate room.
