The Boiler Room

2723 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226 | Downtown & Deep Ellum | 214-758-0104

Location Description:

The Boiler Room, located on Elm Street across from Dada in Deep Ellum, received a facelift less than a year after opening. The place still has the general dark feel, with its black painted walls, curtains and neon lights, but the changes, which include a full menu and stage for performances from area rock bands, are a reflection of new owner Stevie Benton's style. Benton, who plays bass for Drowning Pool, took over the Boiler Room as a way to give back to the neighborhood that launched his band more than a decade ago. "[Drowning Pool] got our start down in Deep Ellum," Benton says. "We owe that area pretty much our entire career."
