Recent winners of the coveted Best Bar in Dallas award by the Dallas Observer, LaGrange in Deep Ellum lives up to the award. Part country bar, part live music venue, part restaurant, and part chill hangout spot, LaGrange is easily one of the best bars in Dallas. LaGrange has live music almost nightly, and features a great sound system and a fantastic patio out back. Be sure to come for some food too, as well as one of the most interesting dessert creations in Dallas, a boozy shaved ice. It's shaved ice with a shot of your favorite liquor - tasty!
St. Pete's Dancing Marlin is a Deep Ellum landmark. Serving lunch and dinner as well as drinks from a full bar, St. Pete's is a great place for dinner for 2 or dinner for 200. Bring your friends and enjoy live music on Fridays and Saturdays - we recommend sitting at the bar, which, according to their website, is the "longest bar in Dallas." That's what she said.
Deep Sushi is known for serving some of the best sushi in Dallas. With a bar, small dining room and fantastic happy hour specials - how could you go wrong? They stay open late on weekends, so you can get a Philly roll fix almost any time. Hours: Mon-Wed 11am-2:30pm, 5pm-11pm Thu 11am-2:30pm, 5pm-12am Fri 11am-2:30pm, 5pm-1am Sat 5pm-1am
2fer Tuesdays @ AllGood Cafe - buy 2 entrees & get the less expensive one free!
AllGood Cafe keeps with Deep Ellum's alternative, eclectic vibe. Pairing diner food with live music Wednesdays through Saturdays, AllGood is a place to grab some grub and chill. Their MySpace bio says it best: "It's like goin' to Austin wihout havin' to pass thru Waco." We completely agree.
Cowboy Chow is the latest project from the owners of Twisted Root Burger Co., just down the street in Deep Ellum. According to their website, "Cowboy Chow is simple quality driven dishes that are darn cheap for what you are getting." And we're talking really cheap - brisket tacos (yum!) for just $9!
Twisted Root Burger Co. in Deep Ellum is the place to go in Dallas for sassy atmosphere and even bolder burgers. The staff is relentless (salads are referred to as "sissy food"), and the "twisted roots" (french fries) are fantastic alongside homemade root beer.
Deep Ellum has its fair share of unique places to eat and drink, and Twisted Root does the neighborhood proud. After you grab a burger, stick around for an "adult-only milkshake", with ice cream made by the restaurant's own pastry chef.
