Tired of the same old watering hole? Switch things up this weekend by visiting one of the city's new bars, which run the gamut from fancy rooftop bars to vintage motorcycle shops with cheap granddad beer.
Stellar on Henderson Avenue was a disaster, so it was no surprise when the bar changed ownership and shifted its concept. The former Vickery Park space is now Bar Stellar, which boasts dramatic cocktails and an Instagram-minded redesign. While we have yet to whet our whistles at the new Bar Stellar, it's worth a visit to see if this Knox-Henderson bar has what it takes to survive in a competitive food and drink neighborhood.

Local Moto + Provisions
If you dig coffee, cold-pressed juice, fancy toast, vintage motorcycles or cheap granddad beers, the new Local Moto in Oak Cliff is the spot for you. This combination motorcycle repair shop and cafe, adjacent to Local Press + Brew, has a fun selection of $3 granddad beers like Schlitz and Old Milwaukee, and it's serving killer coffee and a small menu of snacks.
This laid-back new bar specializes in $10 classic cocktails, vinyl and phenomenal bar snacks. This is the kind of place where you can revel in the thoughtful details, from the reusable metal straws to the stellar vinyl selection and impeccable service. For those complaining about the Uptown-ification of Deep Ellum, this Elm Street bar is your reprieve.
