Tanstaafl Pub

409 N. Bowen Road Arlington, TX 76012 | Arlington | 817-460-9506

Location Description:

Laid back since 1976, Tanstaafl is a well-kept local secret, possessing more character than you'll know what to do with. With a beer garden in back and dartboards for weekly tournaments, it's like drinking in a space that's a cross between an Irish pub and your own living room. The name refers to a Robert Heinlein novel popularizing the phrase "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch," though there are usually free hot dogs, Chex mix or popcorn, especially for Wednesday night drink-in theater. Bluegrass bands take the tiny stage Thursday nights, and cover bands and solo acoustic acts on Saturdays.
