Off the Record Craft Beer & Vinyl

It all started as a hipster wet dream: a semi-quiet spot in Deep Ellum to browse through vinyl records while drinking beer — exposed brick walls included. But record shop + bar Off the Record became a line-down-the-block, the-doorman-doesn’t-know-you hotspot thanks to a constant nightly rotation of Dallas’ best DJs. The small space found new life after serving for years as Club Dada’s green room. OTR is permanently packed to the rim with people actually dancing and, well, also grinding, but there’s a fairly large patio in the back if you want to talk to friends without someone twerking between you.
