Esquire Says: Hey These Dallas Bars Are Some of The Best

A few weeks ago, when Conan O'Brien rolled through town, he said to the packed crowd: "You people know how to drink." Turns out, as Robert Wilonsky reported over on Unfair Park, Esquire is thinking the same thing.

Good news, and with the New York Times recently sporting Deep Ellum's living-breathing qualities, we may have to don cowboy boots again to impress tourists in search of authentic Dallas.
