The Nightmare - CLOSED - Closed

2810 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226 | Downtown & Deep Ellum | N/A

Location Description:

The poor building on the corner of Elm and Malcolm X in Deep Ellum goes through owners like its patrons go through bottles of whiskey. But it's got new management and a new name: The Nightmare, and with its Elm Street address, the pun is definitely intended. The freshly painted all-black interior looks clean and sleek. A short walk past the front room bar leads to the stage where hard-rock and metal acts regularly play, which makes The Nightmare a fitting name. But that's no reason to be intimidated; it's staffed with some of the friendliest people in town, and the front porch is great for people-watching.
