This is the place where all Dallas rock music fans have been at one time in their lives. Visiting Trees is like a rite-of-passage for area high-school seniors, who have assured their parents that they're safe and sound at a friend's house. It's a place with great history and legend, like Kurt Cobain's infamous fight with a bouncer, and many ear-splitting performances from The Flaming Lips. In recent years Trees shut down and reopened with the help of new management. A fresh coat of paint and some remodeling around the bar has the once ramshackle operation looking as sleek as any ultra-lounge in town. A trip to Trees is a history lesson--plus you get to hear some great local and national bands.
