Our Critics' Picks

It may not be possible for a dive bar to be located this close to SMU, but Dyer Street Bar is the next best thing. The crowd is generally within five years of trading in the fake ID for a real one. It's invitingly smoky and dark, with a scarred hardwood bar, concrete floor, dartboard, a stained pool table and one cheap plastic foosball table. Other coin-operated diversions include a jukebox with a decent alt-rock selection, Silver Strike and Big Buck Hunter.
