  • Sun, Fri-Sat 12pm-2am, Mon-Thu 5pm-2am
In Oak Cliff lives a little dive bar that doesn't take itself too seriously. With one pool table, a small bar and a short wooden deck out back, Tradewinds is a neighborhood bar full of regulars who argue that Oak Cliff will soon be as safe as Uptown. Some nights the bar will serve up homemade pizza, occasionally it will give out free shots to its regulars and every now and then it has live music on the weekends. It's all about what mood they're in. There's no set schedule for this safe and lighthearted spot, so you just have to see what's in store when you show up.
