The Door (Dallas)

The Door (Dallas)

The Door first opened the doors of its Deep Ellum all-ages location back in May 1998, and it's been a popular place for young music fans to get their rocks off to the popular touring and local acts of every genre.

Plush (Dallas)

With its upstairs VIP area, bottle service, smoking-hot dancers and bass-heavy sound system, this ultra lounge is one of the hottest in Dallas.
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.

  • Adair


    2624 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226-1402
    214-939-9900 If you've never met a cowboy who could give you a pretty good lesson in punk-rock history, that problem can be quickly resolved at Adair's Saloon in Deep Ellum. The place combines country music with live bands almost every night of the week, with an aesthetic that goes back to Deep Ellum's punk era of the 1980s and 1990s. The venue's raw wooden walls are covered with stickers, and the floor is well-worn from late-night shuffles and line dances. And if you work up a hunger while you're there, no need to go anywhere else. Adair's has one of the best burgers in town. Read more about Adair's >>

  • Angry Dog

    Angry Dog

    2726 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226
    214-741-4406 We're reluctant to use the phrase "fancy dive," but the 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 ice tea, which is a combination of raspberry and regular teas blended locally. Read more about Angry Dog >>

  • Anvil Pub

    Anvil Pub

    2638 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226
    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 from the floor up. "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. Read more about Anvil Pub >>

  • The Bank

    The Bank

    1313 Main St. Dallas, TX 75202

    The Bank, located on Main Street in downtown Dallas, makes good use of the basement of an old bank - even to the point of tucking a lounge area, complete with bottle-service, into an old vault. It's wrapped the vault's big round door in lights, and added some lasers and smoke machines that make the bar seem like something out of a James Bond flick. Just grab a martini from one of the attentive bartenders to complete the image. The Bank offers a spacious wraparound bar, plenty of space for dancing, seating throughout, or, if you're looking for a quieter, less bustling place to grab a drink, check out the backside of the bar where there's lots more space to hang out.

  • Black Swan Saloon

    Black Swan Saloon

    2708 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226
    214-749-4848 Deep Ellum hasn’t been known for culinary creativity, nor has it made a name for itself in the area of mixology. But Gabe Sanchez, who opened Black Swan Saloon in 2010, seeks to change all that. In 2011, he earned the coveted Dallas Observer Best of Dallas “Best Bartender” award, thanks to his proficiency with a cocktail shaker and a conversation. The bar, built into the old Thin Room, is exactly that: a long thin room with black walls and a lone flat-screen television that sits high above the bar. In the corner opposite the door sits a stage, barely big enough to hold two musicians, but that’s all the racket you need at Black Swan – just enough to pad a conversation with a little background noise.

  • Bliss

    1911 N. Griffin St. Dallas, TX 75202-1505

  • Blue Cat Blues

    Blue Cat Blues

    2612 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226-1402
    214-744-2293 In the old Red Blood Cub space, Tuckers' Blues proves that the blues isn't dead in Deep Ellum -- or Dallas. It's hard to believe that this former punk and hardcore club made such a striking transition, because at Tuckers' the vibe is so warm, inviting and, well, bluesy, from the low lighting to the intimate candlelight seating to the friendly staff. Located next to Twisted Root Burger Company, the club is tucked off the street, though its long blue awning helps identify it. Most nights, the cover's $10. Open most Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings after 8 p.m., just check Tuckers' calendar for which local or visiting blues legend (or up-and-comer) will be gracing the stage.

  • Blue Room

    1409 S. Lamar St. Dallas, TX 75242

  • The Boiler Room

    The Boiler Room

    2723 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226
    214-758-0104 The Boiler Room, located on Elm Street across from Dada in Deep Ellum, received a facelift less than a year after opening. The place still has the general dark feel, with its black painted walls, curtains and neon lights, but the changes, which include a full menu and stage for performances from area rock bands, are a reflection of new owner Stevie Benton's style. Benton, who plays bass for Drowning Pool, took over the Boiler Room as a way to give back to the neighborhood that launched his band more than a decade ago. "[Drowning Pool] got our start down in Deep Ellum," Benton says. "We owe that area pretty much our entire career." Read more about The Boiler Room >>

  • British Beverage Company (BBC)

    British Beverage Company (BBC)

    2800 Routh St. Dallas, TX 75201
    214-922-8220 A sleek new bar that hopes to serve as Uptown’s go-to brew house is what the locals have coined “BBC.” With a massive draft beer setup, there are more than 52 reasons to visit The British Beverage Company, not to mention the place’s impressive collection of bottled beers. The sleek interior is only half as impressive as the outdoor courtyard, which features multiple fire pits and comfortable seating. Although it doesn’t have the greatest happy hour deals, the bar makes up for it with its live acoustic music three nights a week. Read more about British Beverage Company (BBC) >>

  • Calais Winery

    Calais Winery

    3000 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226-1626
    214-453-2548 From this shop, rustic with faded brick, a concrete floor and an earth-tone color scheme, owner Benjamin Calais has been releasing his small-batch wines since October 2008. Customers come for the wine tastings held Wednesdays through Sundays. The tastings include not only the winery's stock but also international selections, with themed tastings held every weekend. While the establishment doesn't have a kitchen, patrons are more than welcome to order from nearby restaurants or to bring their own dishes to be paired with Calais' selection. Private and corporate events are often held here, but even if the spot isn't right for your shindig, you might very well find yourself leaving this charming place with a membership to the Wine Club. For $29.95, members receive two bottles of Calais wine every two months. Read more about Calais Winery >>

  • City Tavern

    City Tavern

    1402 Main St. Dallas, TX 75201
    214-745-1402 This is an easy-going restaurant and bar that loves a good rock show. While the menu, beginning with lunch, doesn’t stray too far from the normal pub-grub choices (e.g., fish and chips, burgers, gigantic stuffed jalapeños), a po-boy and a pulled pork sandwich are also available. Customers can enjoy $3 drink specials or beer-and-a-shot pairings. Don’t be surprised if owner Josh Florence is the bartender serving it to you. Arriving before 10 p.m. is your best chance of snagging a table to take in the tunes from a long roster of bands on a Friday night. Thanks in part to the amiable staff, its well-worn wood decor and a kickin’ soundtrack, this joint oozes a neighborly vibe. Read more about City Tavern >>

  • Copa


    525 S. Industrial Blvd. Dallas, TX 75207
    214-741-4020 Copa looks like a Mexican restaurant without the tables…or the Mexican food. Serving lunch Monday through Saturday as well as a late-night menu, it offers such favorites as burgers, wings and fish baskets to Tejano music during the week and hip-hop on weekends. A club with Latin flair and a Top 40 spin, red-lit arches and brown-sponged walls cradle a dance floor with plenty of bar space under metallic neon palm trees. On Two-Dollar Tuesday, selections behind the bar and from the kitchen are on special, and three-dollar shots are always available. Read more about Copa >>

  • Dada


    2720 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226
    214-742-3400 For more than two decades, Dada has played a pivotal role in the Dallas music scene. Until the club shut down for a while beginning in 2009, the pulse of Dallas music could always be heard coming from the drums on the stage at Dada, located squarely in the middle of Deep Ellum. Luckily, in early 2011, City Tavern owner Josh Florence and some partners purchased and renovated the Deep Ellum mainstay. Big changes include an improved sound system, a huge outdoor stage and a bar relocated to the back of the room. The bar's brick walls are still intact, as is the corner stage where local and national bands play almost every night. Read more about Dada >>

  • The Door Dallas

    The Door Dallas

    2513 Main St. Dallas, TX 75226
    214-742-3667 The Door first opened the doors of its Deep Ellum all-ages location back in May 1998, and it's been a popular place for young music fans to get their rocks off to the popular touring and local acts of every genre (with a slant toward pop, rock, punk rock and pop-punk). Together with its sister venue, The Prophet Bar, The Door hosts acts nearly every night of the week. An always up-to-date online calendar lets concertgoers easily find out what bands will be on which venue's stage. A large wraparound bar serves up specials. It's a huge space with plenty of room in the back where the chaperones tend to gather. Just be prepared to pay a cover. Read more about The Door Dallas >>
