Live Music · House Of Blues Dallas · Adair's Saloon · Dada Dallas · The Balcony Club · Double-Width Bar · Bomb Factory · Three Links · Trees. Live music and Southern-inspired cuisine amidst eclectic folk art decor make House of Blues, in downtown Dallas, the ideal place for music-loving visitors. A variety of shows and concerts are scheduled to entertain you all year round, and the hotel restaurant makes the experience even more enjoyable. Double Wide by Deep Ellum offers the best drinks and live music.
In addition to Mama's Mixes, the bar's exclusive line of exclusive cocktails, such as the YooHoo Yeehaw, the bar offers happy hours every day and live music sessions every Friday and Saturday (with the odd show from Monday to Friday; check the schedule). Three Links makes it easy to spend the day there: the taco shop next door offers a full menu for bar customers. This Greenville Avenue theater has played many roles over its more than six decades on the Dallas art scene, but the magnificent Granada is better known as an excellent music venue. Stars like Bob Dylan, The Black Keys and The Avett Brothers have taken the stage, and with friends like these, it's easy to see why it's continually being named as one of the best places to see live music.
The world-famous Trees is a premier venue for live music in Dallas and Fort Worth. Since 1990, Trees has hosted some of the biggest names in music, such as Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Nirvana, Dave Mathews Band and Dallas's own Erykah Badu, among many others. The intimate, smoke-free Deep Ellum space is one of the fans' favorite places to attend a concert in Dallas, and it's also a popular venue for parties and events. Located in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood, this upscale gastropub not only offers a solid menu of food and drink, but it's also a great place to watch a game.
Expect to find 19 large HD screens that broadcast non-stop sporting action both indoors and outdoors, in a huge dog-friendly courtyard. Dining options include everything from tacos to gourmet burgers, artisanal pizzas and braised ribs. Drinks range from wine, beer and craft cocktails to a wide range of Scottish and American whiskeys. And if that's not enough to entertain you, there are also pool tables, jenga and hole corn.
Not only are Dallas people passionate about their own sports teams, but they're also passionate about sports in general. Dallas may not be the City of Music, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of opportunities to hear live music in Dallas on any given day of the week. As a neighborhood bar and music venue, Three Links offers the best of both worlds for Dallasans who love craft beer and increasingly cool live music, with all kinds of performances, from independent rockers and local favorites to up-and-coming stars and veterans of the show. Speaking of wall-to-wall televisions, the Christies Sports Bar & Deli has them aligned as far as the eye can see.
The best sports bars in Dallas are packed with TVs, the drinks are fast and attract fun-loving crowds who are ready to cheer on their favorite teams. Stan's Blue Note may be the official bar of the Florida Gators, but with cheap tickets, food deals and wall-to-wall TVs, it's the best neighborhood spot for any sports fan, regardless of the team you support. And if you're looking for a more exclusive sports bar atmosphere, the Owner's Box at the Omni Hotel in the city center will be your ideal place.
