The Wild Turkey

The Wild Turkey

Since 1978, The Wild Turkey has been the site of much gobbling - of food, that is -- in a rustic setting, reminiscent of a honky-tonk and sports bar combo.

  • Abbey Inn Restaurant & Pub

    Abbey Inn Restaurant & Pub

    101 W. Hickory Denton, TX 76201
    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. Read more about Abbey Inn Restaurant & Pub >>

  • The Abbey Underground

    The Abbey Underground

    100 W. Walnut St. Denton, TX 76201

    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.

  • Andy

    Andy's Basement Bar & Grill

    122 N. Locust St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-565-5400 A longtime staple of the Denton bar scene and located on the downtown square, Andy's smokey interior is one of the best places to catch some of the many emerging bands in North Texas. Local acts regularly test new material on a small audience, and occasionally national acts pass through. Other than a stage and a bar, Andy's offers little else in the way of amenities. A few chairs and cocktail tables are scattered around toward the back, as well as a very ramshackle-looking balcony where the sound man mixes during the bands' sets. Read more about Andy's Basement Bar & Grill >>

  • Banter


    219 W. Oak St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-565-1638 Known for its hand-pulled espresso, homemade and handmade food and choice beer selection, Banter is a family-owned and -operated bistro with a coffeehouse aesthetic near the square in downtown Denton. Banter's walls feature a revolving assortment of creations by area artists, and its stage features a rotating cast of mostly local bands and artists. Thursdays are open-mic nights. Because it's situated between Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas, Banter is often filled with students, study groups and, at times, entire classes. But Banter is just as popular with townies. There are patio tables and chairs out front, and seating ranging from comfy couches to folding chairs inside. Read more about Banter >>

  • Big Shots Sports Cafe

    Big Shots Sports Cafe

    1833 Airport Frwy Bedford, TX 76201-5734
    817-510-1310 At Big Shots Sports Cafe in Bedford, one of the newest arrivals to the Mid-Cities bar scene, sensory overload is the most popular item on the menu. The huge main room is divided by a long bar. On one side of it, you can sit at a table and enjoy several home-style offerings from the sports cafe's menu, and late-night Texas hold 'em tournaments ensue. On the other side, there's a corner stage, which features weeknight showcases of live-band karaoke and cover bands on the weekends. But be careful not to overindulge its Thursday night drink special, $1.50 vodka drinks, or you won't feel like such a big shot the next morning. Read more about Big Shots Sports Cafe >>

  • The Cellar 22

    The Cellar 22

    219 E. Hickory St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-435-0149 In recent years, a handful of more adult-oriented places have cropped up in Denton. (Probably because so many University of North Texas students hang around after graduation.) Cellar 22 is one of them. Eschewing the cheap-beer college bar scene of the nearby Denton Square, Cellar 22 is a wine and cigar bar that offers a selection of close to 100 wines. In the front room, patrons can sample wine at the small wine bar or on cocktail tables. And in a back ventilated smoking room, you can light up a selection from the walk-in humidor. Read more about The Cellar 22 >>

  • Cool Beans

    Cool Beans

    1210 W. Hickory St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-382-7025 With daily drink and food specials, this low-key hangout draws an eclectic crowd of college students, musicians and middle-aged regulars. If it's too busy downstairs, head up to the roof, where a second bar offers cheap canned domestic beer. Bands and solo musicians occasionally perform intimate sets on the roof's small stage area. Read more about Cool Beans >>

  • Crazy Horse Saloon

    Crazy Horse Saloon

    508 S. Elm St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-591-0586 Crazy Horse Saloon & Dancehall is in the corner spot in a strip shopping plaza less than a mile outside of downtown Denton. Its website describes the 5-year-old saloon as a "honky-tonk college bar," but the saloon's drink specials, pool tables, dance floor and bar stools seem to attract more of a cowboy and biker crowd than the college bars closer to the square. There's a large hardwood dance floor surrounded by plenty of seating. Crazy Horse hosts karaoke on Tuesday and Thursday nights and live local bands, ranging from country and Western to rock 'n' roll, every Friday and Saturday night when they charge a $5 cover for 21 and up, and a $10 for under 21.

  • Crossroads Bar

    Crossroads Bar

    1803 N. Elm St. Denton, TX 76201

    Tucked away in an unassuming Denton shopping center, Crossroads Bar is just as the name suggests — a cross section of young students and old cowboys. It’s not uncommon to see people of all walks enjoying the bar’s cheap draft beers on the same night. The self-proclaimed “Best Little Beer Joint in Texas” boasts a series of flat-screens, viewable throughout the bar’s smoky interior. Live music permeates the bar throughout the week, offering karaoke on Tuesdays, live piano performances on Wednesdays and various Americana acts on weekends. On most nights you can find couples on the dance floor, two-stepping to country hits. Read more about Crossroads Bar >>

  • Dan

    Dan's Silverleaf

    103 N. Industrial St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-320-2000 Dan's Bar: The Sequel has the homey familiarity of the original, plus its rugged wood and woven-blanket atmosphere (not to mention Chef Pam cookin' up on Wednesday nights). Tricky to locate between the square and assorted warehouses, Dan's still hosts the best of Denton's rootsier bands. Read more about Dan's Silverleaf >>

  • Fry Street Public House

    Fry Street Public House

    125 Ave. A Denton, TX 76201

    A staple for many UNT students, Fry Street Public House is less than 200 yards from campus. Opened in the fall of 2009, the bar has hosted its fair share of events and artists, but most notably rapper Coolio in May 2011. Like a cattle call, herds of college students pour into the bar’s double doors each night for “orders for quarters,” or 50 cent well drinks from 9 to 11 p.m. Live bands and DJs play the spacious patio on the weekends, and the bar’s upstairs balcony overlooks a busy Fry Street. Read more about Fry Street Public House >>

  • Fry Street Tavern

    Fry Street Tavern

    121 Ave. A Denton, TX 76201
    940-383-2337 Opened in 2001, this Fry Street area bar is named for the historic hub of late-night bars, coffee shops, eateries and head shops in Denton that are all within walking distance to the University of North Texas - and its many dorms. That makes Fry Street Tavern a popular between-class haunt after it opens at 3 p.m., as well as a busy after-hours watering hole. The blue and white awning outside seems a bit out-of-context, because inside, the bar's design is green--as in "Go, Mean Green!" UNT logos and memorabilia are positioned at every turn. Even the walls are painted a UNT shade of green. Read more about Fry Street Tavern >>

  • The Garage

    The Garage

    113 Ave. A Denton, TX 76201
    940-383-0045 Established in 2008 in the old Muthers' pool hall location, this Fry Street area bar is just steps away from The University of North Texas. So expect to see the place packed with college-age folks for The Garage's 5 to 11 p.m. happy hour. Live music provides an alternative to the jukebox most Friday and Saturday nights. There's a patio and several pool tables, foosball and some arcade games to pass the time when not relaxing in The Garage's booths -- made of old car seats, complete with headrests. On any given night, you'll spot plenty of UNT T-shirts and ball caps. The Garage offers many popular daily drink specials, such as 50-cent wells on Wednesday nights, $4 pitchers on Sundays or 50 cent drafts for Monday Night Football. Read more about The Garage >>

  • The GreenHouse Restaurant & Bar

    The GreenHouse Restaurant & Bar

    600 N. Locust St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-484-1349 Jazz music is one of the biggest exports from The University of North Texas in Denton, which has jazz musicians coming from all over the world to study at the school's esteemed program. And when they're not fine-tuning their craft, students congregate at The Green House for strong drinks and, well, more jazz. On Thursdays, one of the most popular nights at the Denton restaurant and bar, UNT's best set up their instruments for improvisational performances that last until closing time. But even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket, The Green House offers a chance to rub elbows with people who can. Read more about The GreenHouse Restaurant & Bar >>

  • Hailey

    Hailey's Club

    122 W. Mulberry St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-323-1160 Clean, colorful and comfortable, Hailey's sports a pool table and two large bars, plus one of the best craft-beer selections in Denton, including local greatness from Rahr and Franconia as well as fine Belgian ales and rotating seasonals. Those are all fine reasons to go, but the main attraction is the live music on the generously sized stage and powerful P.A. system. Little wonder that Hailey's is rivaled only by Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios when it comes to booking the hottest touring indie-rock groups and big local acts in Denton. Read more about Hailey's Club >>

  • Hickory Street Lounge

    Hickory Street Lounge

    212 Hickory St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-387-2222 Denton is a city full of bars where college students at the nearby University of North Texas campus can get hammered on a shoestring budget, but not at Hickory Street Lounge, Denton's answer to the retro Prohibition-era cocktail trend. You need to have a little more spending money to do that here, but while the philosophy of most neighboring bars is quantity over quality, Hickory Street Lounge invites its customers to stop and taste the drinks, mixed by quite possibly the only true mixologist in all of Denton. But the biggest sign of bar's desire to let the taste of its drinks shine through is the strict no-smoking policy, a breath of fresh air when bar-hopping in this college town. Read more about Hickory Street Lounge >>

  • Hooligans


    104 N. Locust St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-442-6950 Hooligans is a two-story pub on the square in Denton housed in a space built in 1899. Its exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, metal ceiling tiles and stained glass give the bar a warm, welcoming feel, while modern flair like the Internet jukebox keeps the bar filled with Top 40 hits and classic rock. Thanks to the daily drink specials and inexpensive eats from the full menu, Hooligans is popular with townies and college kids alike. Inside, there's plenty of seating upstairs and down. Out front, a few tables on the sidewalk provide a great view of the hustle and bustle of the square. Read more about Hooligans >>

  • II Charlies

    II Charlies

    809 Sunset St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-891-1100 Named after the two guys who own the place, Two Charlies is a two-story bar and restaurant with a healthy mix of Bubbas and UNT drinkers, so it could hardly be more typically Denton. It hosts a Bloody Mary recipe contest every October and a salsa cook-off every Cinco de Mayo. Both floors are compact, but a covered patio downstairs and balcony upstairs provides a place to escape. The food is typical bar food, and the bartenders are typically friendly and crass. Look out for the drink specials. Read more about II Charlies >>

  • J R Pockets

    J R Pockets

    1127 Fort Worth Drive Denton, TX 76205
    940-383-3573 If pool is your game, head to JR Pockets, a billiards bar in Denton that is among the best in the metroplex. With professional-grade pool cues, clean, taught felt on its tables and a jukebox that won't quit, you would have to try hard not to have a good time at this loud and friendly bar. The atmosphere is a step back in time, where old cowhands and bluesmen are the joint's regulars, taking up space at the bar and lighting one cigarette after another in the bar's smoky interior. Read more about J R Pockets >>

  • The Labb Sports Lounge

    The Labb Sports Lounge

    218 W. Oak St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-293-4240 The Labb Sports Lounge is the newest bar on the Denton Square, but its regulars have been going there for years. That's because The Labb has continued with a format similar to the last bar to occupy the cavernous space, Texas 8 Ball. It has switched focus in one area, though: food. The Labb now offers sandwiches and other pub grub menu items to the droves of hungry college students from the nearby University of North Texas campus. Also catering to college kids are the ridiculously low happy hour drink prices every night of the week. Monday offers $2 margaritas and $2.50 Mexican beer. And for the really thirsty, The Labb has Jim Beam on tap. Read more about The Labb Sports Lounge >>

  • The Loophole Courthouse Pub

    The Loophole Courthouse Pub

    119 W. Hickory Denton, TX 76201
    940-565-0770 From its name to the decor to the cutesy menu titles, The Loophole Courthouse Pub & Grill -- located within eyesight of Denton's historic Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum -- really takes its legal locale and the area's history to heart. Built in 1896, the once-county-seat courthouse (made of beautiful and Texas-local limestone, sandstone and granite) is downtown Denton's most memorable landmark. And this cozy, smoke-filled pub and grill pays a tongue-in-cheek tribute with menu section titles like "Arraignment Appetizers," "I'll Take the Wrap," "Bailiff Burgers," "Jury Box Baskets," and offers daily food and drink specials. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., but from 10:30 p.m. on, the kitchen only serves pub grub from the appetizer menu. Unless you're in good with the judge, er, cook.

  • Lucky Lou

    Lucky Lou's

    1207 W. Hickory St. Denton, TX 76201
    940-484-5550 Like other bars in the Fry Street area within walking distance of the University of North Texas, Lucky Lou's attracts a high percentage of patrons wearing UNT T-shirts, hats and backpacks, once afternoon and evening classes let out. With more than 25 beers on tap, multiple bars, more than half a dozen plasma screens, a couple of foosball tables, pool tables and video games, Lucky Lou's has been a popular after-hours spot since opening in fall 1996. When the weather's nice, Lucky Lou's regulars know to expect the patio--one of the biggest in town--to be crowded with folks taking advantage of the bar's daily college-budget-friendly drink specials. Read more about Lucky Lou's >>

  • Mable Peabody

    Mable Peabody's

    1215 E. University Drive Denton, TX 76201

    First opened in 1979, Mable Peabody's Beauty Parlor and Chainsaw Repair served as a watering hole for Denton's gay and lesbian community. That is, until March 2007, when an arsonist, using the bar's own liquor to set the nightclub ablaze, torched the original Mable Peabody's. In the fall of 2008, owner Kelly Sanders reopened the bar just a block or so from the original spot. The new location is more than twice the size of the original, with a spacious central bar, a huge dance floor and stage area that has plenty of mirrors - so folks can watch themselves dance. There's a digital jukebox, an assortment of video games, pool tables and nightly drink specials. The original bar with the unforgettable name gained a reputation as a popular underground venue, hosting under-the-radar touring acts, but now, while it still hosts shows on occasion, Mable Peabody's is bar first, venue second. And, today, its website bills the bar as "the Cheers of Denton, Texas for the gays and lesbians." Read more about Mable Peabody's >>
