Location Description:

This Deep Ellum hotspot serves what it calls upscale Cajun soul alongside live entertainment. A cross-section of classic and re-interpreted Cajun dishes are available: crawfish etouffée, red beans and rice, blackened fish, Cajun salmon and blackened chicken Alfredo are only some examples. Friday is no-cover night and made more popular by a rotating roster of drink specials. Open mic night on Saturdays with neo-soul tunes, poetry and art draws huge crowds. Sankofa is also a see-and-be-seen establishment, popular with celebrities in sports, entertainment and film, among them Dallas Cowboys players. This restaurant-club can also be used for a wide variety of private events. In the past, it has played host to wedding receptions and baby showers.
