The Door (Dallas)

The Door (Dallas)

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.

  • 6th Street Bar

    6th Street Bar

    3005 Routh St. Dallas, TX 75201
    214-965-0962 Paying homage to Austin's iconic 6th Street, this Uptown bar is trying to establish the same party atmosphere that you would find in the Texas capital. With two large garage-style doors, the bar can easily shift from indoor club to outdoor party, and features a rooftop patio and bar. Mounted throughout the bar's clean mahogany interior are more than six HD flat-screens, often locked on ESPN. Thursdays promise either acoustic or solo acts, while the weekends are pumped up by DJs, dance music and full bands. The "Austin Sipper" is 6th Street Bar's signature drink, and the first drink listed on the "Skinnies" menu, cleverly named for featuring drinks that contain less than 100 calories.

  • Alexandre


    4026 Cedar Springs rd. Dallas, TX 75219
    214-559-0720 This popular neighborhood bar and live music venue is located in a busy strip shopping mall in Oak Lawn, sandwiched between a Chinese restaurant and a doughnut shop, just a few doors down from a convenience store and a novelty sex shop. So the sidewalk patio out front makes for an interesting perch for late-night people-watching. Most of the art on the walls features framed record albums by artists ranging from Elton John to Nancy Sinatra, and cozy two-person booths make for a great place for an intimate conversation, but the real appeal of the place seems to be the interaction between Alexandre's bartenders and the regulars at the full bar, which features all-day happy hours on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, as well as $3 Long Island iced teas all-day every day. Plus, the bar features live music every night but Monday. Read more about Alexandre's >>

  • Allure


    2224 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75201

    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. Read more about Allure >>

  • Avenu Lounge

    Avenu Lounge

    2912 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    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. Read more about Avenu Lounge >>

  • BlackFriar Pub

    BlackFriar Pub

    2621 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-953-0599 Located on McKinney Avenue, this popular restaurant and bar attracts bustling Uptown crowds and folks who live in the surrounding neighborhood. Serving up a delicious selection of food from appetizers to cheese boards to burgers and sandwiches as well as an abundant beer selection, BlackFriar's menu adds up to one serious pub and grub. BlackFriar provides plenty of seating inside and out, and has one of the best patios in Dallas -- with decorative heat lamps, assorted seating, warm lighting and a full bar. Inside, the atmosphere is dimly lit and appropriately warm, with dark woods and lots of pub-style seating. Happy hour runs from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Sundays, brunch is available from noon to 4 p.m. Read more about BlackFriar Pub >>

  • Bowen House

    Bowen House

    2614 Boll St Dallas, TX 75204 In the little house that Bowen built so long ago, Bowen House promises libations and bar food at a reasonable price. Where else in Dallas can you get a burger and custom-made cocktails for a song in a small dining room fashioned out of what used to be a living room? Uptown could use all the quirk it can get, and sipping on a Manhattan in the dining room can feel a little like drinking at Grandma’s house, only with much better music. The food can be a challenge, though, as nachos, sliders and other classics disappoint, and plates that reach further fall further short. That burger will make a good use of your time. And with cheddar and ultra crispy bacon, it will add to your waistline. Read more about Bowen House >>

  • The Brick & Joe

    The Brick & Joe's

    2525 Wycliff Ave. Dallas, TX 75219

    Taking up most of the space in a small strip mall on Wycliff Avenue is the Brick & Joe's towering exterior, its large sign bathing the parking lot in a neon red glow. Although the LGBT-friendly bar relocated from Maple Avenue in 2009, the new building has seen no problem ushering in old regulars and new faces alike. A large bar serves as a centerpiece for a spacious dance floor, complete with two dancing poles and a gigantic disco ball. People of all types enjoy the club's loud and upbeat atmosphere, as male bartenders serve up drinks in nothing but tiny red boxer-briefs. Male dancers wear the same garb to dance on poles, and sometimes collect dollar bills in the process. Karaoke Tuesdays are a staple at The Brick & Joe's, although the extravagant drag shows are the real reason to get dolled up. Read more about The Brick & Joe's >>

  • Christie

    Christie's Sports Bar

    2811 Mckinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204-8600
    214-954-1511 This family-owned and operated "Cheers of Uptown" watering hole has all it needs to fit the sports bar bill -- big-screen TVs everywhere the eye can see (even on the covered patio!), two pool tables as well as mahogany and brass appointments. The latter gives it a classier feel befitting the location. That extends to the menu. The house specials include the teriyaki steak, pasta with garlic chicken or shrimp and chicken-fried steak. For those in need for a more "authentic" sports bar grub there are chicken wings. The burgers, like the Italian, come big, sloppy and juicy. Teetotalers can enjoy root beer floats.Happy hour runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, but Christies also features nightly drink specials. Read more about Christie's Sports Bar >>

  • Club Escape

    2525 Wycliff Ave. Dallas, TX 75219-2551

  • Club Pure

    Club Pure

    2026 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75201

    The facade at Pure is white with the name of the club stretched all the way across the front of it, highlighted with neon lights. The neon lights continue on the inside the club, pulsing with the deep bass as the crowd makes good use of the dancefloor. The club, located on Commerce Street, is a moderately sized venue with enough room for a few hundred patrons. On a recent visit, the VIP section was empty but the dance floor was full as two DJs spun from atop a high stage and, inexplicably, an episode of Friends played on all the bar’s televisions.

  • Comedysportz DFW

    3515 Brown St. Dallas, TX 75219-4721

  • The Common Table

    The Common Table

    2917 Fairmount St. Dallas, TX 75201-1455
    214-880-7414 It’s a hophead's heaven at Uptown’s The Common Table, thanks to the bar and restaurant’s expertly curated craft beer menu. The bar is located in an old remodeled house on Fairmont, offering a cozy, wide open feel inside and a huge patio in the front where some of the area’s best bands play on Thursday nights. But really, it’s all about the beer. Rotator taps bring in local beers and exotic rarities, weekly. Read more about The Common Table >>

  • Cork Wine Bar

    Cork Wine Bar

    3636 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-780-0373 Located in the West Village, four doors from the corner of McKinney Avenue and Cityplace West, this tasting lounge puts a modern spin on the average wine bar. Cork has six different themed state-of-the-art tasting stations, all of which are categorized--some by region or grape, others by rarity. After purchasing a "Cork Card" (a pre-loaded ATM-ish card for wine purchases) patrons can swipe their cards, and experience a taste or glass of the wine. Tastes are one-ounce samples, and glasses are five-ounces; prices vary depending on the type of wine chosen, which means you can taste some of the rarest wines for just a couple bucks. Cork also provides wide variety in its retail selection, and a basic menu of appetizers consisting primarily of cheeses and tasty crackers. Oh, and its chic backroom can be rented out.

  • Cru: A Wine Bar

    Cru: A Wine Bar

    3699 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-526-9463 Floor-to-ceiling wine racks set into the walls combined with purples and autumnal tones darken this swanky wine aficionados' destination. The low lighting adds a sense of chic and romance to Patrick Colombo's (of Sfuzzi and Ferré fame) West Village wine bar, open since 2002. Crú and its staff stock more than 300 bottles of wine, 50 high-end wines available by the glass, pairings with pizzas, cheese fondue and small plates as well as 14 daily wine flights. The latter include vertical tastings (samples of several vintages of the same varietals), which allow the patron to get an idea of how the changing seasons and weather patterns affect any given year's harvest. A dinner entrée menu is also offered. Among the executive chef Paul Singhapong's specialties are pan-seared diver sea scallops with spinach risotto and sun-dried tomato vinaigrette and beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and wild mushroom sauce.

  • Dee Lincoln

    Dee Lincoln's Tasting Room & Bubble Bar

    2101 Cedar Springs Road Dallas, TX 75201

    Dee Lincoln has a rich culinary history in Dallas, but not as a chef. The founder of Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse, her business prowess has made her a local dining superpower for over 20 years. Recently, though, Lincoln stepped away from her position as a purveyor of rib-eyes and started hawking Champagne to the Uptown set. Her Tasting Room & Bubble Bar offers a wide selection of bubbles by the glass or bottle, ranging in price from reasonable to stratospheric. Patrons enjoy their drinks on white leather lounge seats in the center of the room and at the pearly white bar-a stark contrast to the dark wood of Del Frisco's. The Tasting Room in the title doesn't just refer to wine; there are plenty of dinner options on the menu as well. But the wine takes center stage.

  • Dish Restaurant and Lounge

    Dish Restaurant and Lounge

    4123 Cedar Springs Road Dallas, TX 75219-3535
    214-522-3474 Modern, plush and inviting doesn't begin to describe this hot spot that hits all the concepts in the chic restaurant-lounge instruction manual. The 5500 square-foot Dish is bedazzled. It has lighting fit for a club; coves for intimate rendezvous; geometric bump-outs on the walls; chain-mail drapery; and a patio that channels an island getaway. The affordable menu includes selections with locally sourced items (barbecue braised short ribs with Lucky Layla buttery mash) as well as unique cocktails (strawberry basil margarita). It's as if nightlife impresario Tim McEneny (LIFT and Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa) and his partner/chef Doug Brown (Beyond the Box) were gunning for a sure thing.

  • Draft Picks Sports Bar & Grill

    Draft Picks Sports Bar & Grill

    703 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75219
    972-993-3636 Much like the other bars that share the West End neighborhood with Draft Picks, the idea is that bigger is better. If it weren’t for the attractive waitresses delivering beers to the tables on the outside of the room, you’d think you were in a movie theater. The bar’s back wall is covered with a massive screen, on which games, fights and other various sporting events are projected. The rest of the room, lined with exposed brick walls, has a few nooks with couches and lounging areas, all within view of the big screen, and other, smaller flat-screens.

  • Elm & Pearl

    Elm & Pearl

    2204 N. Pearl St. Dallas, TX 75201

    Looking at the front of the shoddy building, it’s difficult to know what occupies the white building on Elm Street and Pearl. But at night, a short trip around the back of the building reveals two open doors, from which neon purple lights and pounding bass emanate. If you look out of place, the security guard working the door is quick to let you know that “it’s a gay bar.” Inside, the layout is just as campy as the exterior. A plywood staircase leads to a small balcony overlooking the bar. Read more about Elm & Pearl >>

  • The Fish

    The Fish

    3636 Mckinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204-1422
    214-522-0071 At this sushi and sashimi house, diners get two things: glitz and fish. High ceilings; a red and black color scheme; a tremendous glass wine cage; an aquarium behind the bar; and mosaic tile walls that give this eatery a swanky, mod ambience. The offerings run the gamut from seasonal crawfish and giant clam to the unexpected (e.g., cheeseburger roll, which contains no beef). The chefs also venture into sci-fi/fantasy-inspired rolls. Such examples of this adventurous cookery are the fiery Godzilla (fresh salmon with chopped onions, jalapeño and green Tabasco). Read more about The Fish >>

  • Four Lounge

    Four Lounge

    2418 Allen St. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-871-2626 Warm-hued tapestries line the walls of this cozy Uptown lounge, located within walking distance of a number of popular eateries. And with the lounge's dessert-and-drink hours -- open Wednesday through Saturday, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. -- you can sample specialty after-dinner drinks like the Butter Caramel Martini, the Key Lime Pie Tini or the complete-with-sprinkles-on-top Cupcake Martini. And you can sip these fancy concoctions in the comfy lounge area inside or on the patio outside. Keith LaBonte, partner and general manager of the Four Lounge, defines the cocktail trend behind the bar's creations as "molecular mixology," which involves the use of powders, gels, foams, sprays and other methods to alter the flavor, appearance or general presentation of drinks. The lounge is located in an area surrounded by Uptown residences and its patrons are often regulars living in the walkable neighborhood. Read more about Four Lounge >>
