Every year we take a lap around the Dallas bar scene to check the temperature of things. What new spots are hopping and why? Which dives are pushing out Miller High Life with a sexy indifference? A burlesque show in Oak Cliff on a Wednesday night? Sign us up. We rotate out a dozen or so bars each year as places close or the froth fizzles for whatever reason. Dallas is a complex city, but finding the proper tonic for what ails us is not.
The 100 bars below are not ranked — we're no saps — but you can search by name using the A to Z widget or give the list a spin see where you land. You can’t lose. Cheers!
