There's a little bit of mystery surrounding the name of the East Dallas bar Strangeways. The bartender will deny that it was named after The Smiths' record, Strangeways, Here We Come, but the bar's décor and music selection would suggest otherwise. The industrial look of the interior - raw wooden walls, concrete slab floor, and harsh, low lighting - is reminiscent of a bar one might find in the band's hometown of Manchester. Same goes for the playlist, most of which is taken from the British new wave and dance movement of the 1980s. The industrial theme ends, though, when you get to the menu, which features a wide range of rare craft beers and elevated bar food.
