The humble Old Crow is wholly unpretentious, and it’s just the kind of dive bar that you’d make a beeline for directly after getting dumped. No, it’s not the fanciest club in all of Dallas, but it’s still got a certain je ne sais quoi that keeps patrons coming back week after week. Want to down a couple of cheap beers and throw some darts? No problem. Want to order a round of reasonably priced shots to help you forget your terrible day? Well, look no further. With plywood floors and classic Busch Light and Pabst Blue Ribbon neon lights, The Old Crow is a seriously excellent hole-in-the-wall worthy of your hard-earned cash. Every true Dallasite has made some memories there — if they can remember the night, that is.
