The Den is Open on McKinney. Here Are Some Photos, Bro.

McKinney Avenue welcomed yet another bar and grill to the strip last month. The Den Bar & Grill has taken over the space where Liar's Den used to be, boasting three stories of hangout space.

The Den serves food all day, but it's more of a bar than a grill. Four categories are listed on the one sided laminated menu: starters, greens, burgers, and sandwiches and extras, with prices ranging from $2 for steak fries to $6 for "Elvis Presley's Fave," a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich. Actually, with nothing on the menu more than $7, it's got "college crowd" written all over it, which might explain the crowd on Tuesday night: an abundance of college-aged patrons hanging out, singing karaoke and playing beer-related games around a fold out table.

The first floor is spacious, a large room filled with wooden tables, chairs and small booths. The walls are lined with flat screen TVs locked on sports. The second floor is referred to as The Rumor Lounge and is full-blown club, with a DJ booth and disco ball. The third and most impressive floor is the rooftop terrace, featuring cushy patio furniture, a bar and the highlight of the whole place: a clear view of the Dallas skyline.
