Deep Ellum’s bars are generally pretty simple. Few offer cocktails beyond a whiskey Coke, but Swallow Lounge seeks to remedy that. The bar, located on Malcolm X Boulevard and Elm Street, is a two-story nightclub that follows the high-end mixology trend. While the drinks don’t match the output of The Cedars Social or The Chesterfield, the long, narrow space is good for lounging. On the back patio, there are dart boards and a cornhole set-up, which will help take your mind off the high prices you’re paying for the cocktails at the bar.
