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.
