RL's Blues Palace - Closed

2715 Meadow St.
Dallas, TX 75215
214-421-9867
R.L. Blues Palace may be tucked away in a run-of-the-mill strip mall, but it’s a great hangout to catch a live performance and drink your blues away. A frequent inclusion on the Observer’s best bars list, R.L. Blues is located in the Oak Cliff area of South Dallas. It’s a newer iteration of an older blues spot that first opened in 1985. The bar serves plenty of beer and wines, and other drinks are available, too. But R.L. Blues can fill up pretty quick, so it might be best to call ahead and reserve a table, especially on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, when live performances are known to bring out a crowd.
