Liquid Zoo

Liquid Zoo owner Nell Scarborough says her establishment is “kind of like Cheers.” On a recent visit to the East Dallas neighborhood bar, located in a strip center on the corner of Skillman Street and Abrams Road, everyone seemed to know everyone else's name, and they all sang along to the Richard Marx-esque power ballads playing on the stereo. In the early evening, the place doubles as a restaurant. The beef for burgers is ground in-house daily, according to Scarborough. The décor, a cluttered bunch of pictures and antiques on every wall, gives the place a familiar feel.
