  • Absinthe Lounge

    Absinthe Lounge

    1409 S. Lamar Dallas, TX 75215
    214-941-9338

    http://www.absinthelounge.net 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. More >>

    Brooklyn Jazz Cafe

    1701 S. Lamar St. Dallas, TX 75334
    214-428-0025

    http://www.brooklynjazzcafe.com In the Southside on Lamar neighborhood hides a hot and cool club, named after New York City's hip borough. This musical haunt was awarded Best Jazz Club honors in our 2010 edition of Best of Dallas and the 2009 best brunch. Brooklyn Jazz Café is housed in a plain redbrick corner building that during the day is flooded with light through French doors. Aside from house specialties, like spicy Caribbean shrimp and oxtails, customers can enjoy swinging tunes while playing pool or sipping house cocktails in the inner bar that's lined with corrugated metal. Sundays feature the talents of Nadia Washington as well as bottomless Bloody Marys, mimosas, poinsettias and belinis. More >>

  • Emerald City Grill

    Emerald City Grill

    2532 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Dallas, TX 75215
    214-421-4648

    http://www.emeraldcitybarandgrill.com At Emerald City Grill, a southside bar with true Cheers-style pub appeal, you're just as likely to be greeted by owner K.K. Smith at the door as to bump into him while he's dancing on the dance floor. Some of the regulars at this joint southwest of Fair Park have been drinking in this spot for more than 30 years, but the bar's been known as Emerald City since 2004. Smith's kept it the kind of place where regulars keep coming back for the DJ nights, live shows, dance lessons and drink specials -- even on weekends. Emerald City has a traditional wooden dance floor surrounded by loads of seating. The bar's open from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and the menu includes typical bar fare including sandwiches and po' boys. More >>

  • Gilley

    Gilley's Dallas

    1135 S. Lamar Dallas, TX 75215
    214-421-2021

    http://www.gilleysdallas.com There's been a lot of confusion surrounding Gilley's ever since South Side Music Hall opened. The entire building is known as Gilley's Complex, but the big question is: Which of the complex's four venues is actually known as Gilley's? Here's the lowdown: Gilley's is South Side Music Hall. It's called Gilley's when Country and Western shows like, say, The Big D Opry take place. For the rock and roll shows it's called South Side Music Hall. Despite the alternating name, the cavernous venue's look remains the same. But thanks to the warm-lodge look of the interior's stone walls, it feels more natural as a country music venue. It doesn't hurt that the wood floor offers plenty of room for line dancing. More >>

  • The Kessler Theater

    The Kessler Theater

    1230 W. Davis St. Dallas, TX 75208
    214-272-8346

    http://www.thekessler.org Known simply as "The Kessler" to insiders who frequent the recently remodeled theater, this Oak Cliff establishment has remained a fixture on the corner of Davis Street and Clinton Avenue since 1942. Over the years, it's been a movie theater and a revival tabernacle, but sat dormant from 1978 until 2009. With Oak Cliff's recent cultural resurgence, The Kessler has been renovated and reopened. Now, it functions as a dance studio, concert venue, an art gallery with a frequently changing gallery space and a bar that offers a much wider variety of drinks than your typical music venue. Locally brewed beers and well-priced spirits stream from the art deco designed bar, which has a 1930s New York feel--but according to the owner, The Kessler's vibe is "exclusively Oak Cliff."

  • Lee Harvey

    Lee Harvey's

    1807 Gould St. Dallas, TX 75215
    214-428-1555

    http://www.leeharveys.com In December 2010, the chef and owners here put a non-bar-food item on the venerable and much-loved Dallas institution's menu: a 10-ounce steak with fries, a far cry from Monday night's dollar fish and steak tacos. Other items officially added about that time were the shrimp basket and a tortilla soup. On Friday nights, the fireside picnic tables are packed sardine-can tight with more than just in-the-know hipsters. Above all, though, folks come to Lee Harvey's for the cheap drinks and lack of pretense. Lee Harvey's is a popular bar with a neighborhood feel -- the wood-paneled walls and neon beer signs help -- and prices to match. Next time you go, ask Bacon, the bar's cat, how the cookbook is coming along. More >>

  • The Loft

    http://www.theloftdallas.com "Located just south of downtown and above Gilley's Saloon at the Palladium, The Loft's 3,000-square-foot balcony and patio lounge is one of several venues housed in the Gilley's Dallas Complex." But it's The Loft that's gained a reputation for offering its patrons one of the area's best nighttime views of the Dallas skyline. Then there's the fact that The Loft's stage is known for featuring a wide variety of touring indie/trendy acts of the up-and-comer variety. The Loft also boasts a stage, dance floor, full bar, comfy couches and tables and chairs. Even if the parking lot fills up on a very busy night, there's usually parking to be found in the area.

    South Side Music Hall

    1135 S. Lamar St. Dallas, TX 75215
    214-421-2021

    http://www.ssmusichall.com The Gilley's Dallas Complex, home to The South Side Music Hall, is located just a few blocks south of downtown near the Convention Center. Opened in 2003 a few years after a fire gutted the original Gilley's in Pasadena, Texas, Gilley's Dallas has "El Toro," the original mechanical bull made famous in Urban Cowboy, much of which was filmed in the original honky-tonk. The Gilley's Dallas Complex, featuring The Palladium Ballroom, The South Side Music Hall, and The Loft, as well as a number of other "event spaces," is more a venue of many venues than the original honky-tonk. As a result, there's a show (or several shows) happening nearly every night of the week. Gilley's also hosts private parties, events, receptions and convention groups. More >>

    http://www.southsideonlamar.com It’s entirely possible to live at South Side on Lamar and never leave your building.

The brick complex has stood on the south side of downtown for more than 100 years and was originally the Sears Building, though it has seen its fair share of expansion over the years to ultimately become the massive compound it is today.
