Deep Ellum offers night owls an emerging lineup of bars and clubs, but what it's most known for is live music, which has been ingrained in its culture since the early 1900's when the area was a famous haunt for jazz and blues artists. Today the neighborhood is home to countless music venues, boasting not only jazz and blues, but everything else in between.
When it comes to catching some of the best music in the city, look no further than Trees, a legendary concert venue for some of the biggest up-and-coming names in rock. If you're musical interests are more varied, Club Dada may be the place for you– where you'll find everything from rock, rap and metal to country and punk. Another place to find a diversity of sounds– and perhaps get in a little swing dancing–is the Sons of Hermann Hall, one of Dallas' most authentic honky-tonks.
If you're looking for a truly unique experience, it doesn't get any quirkier than Double Wide, Dallas' favorite trailer themed dive.
For those who want to do more than just listen to music, The Nines provides a place to dance to it.
Looking for something more laid back? Then you'll like Off the Record, a combination watering hole and record shop– or the Black Swan Saloon, a cozy drinking den with a friendly vibe and tasty house-infused liquors. There's also the Twilite Lounge, a Big Easy themed bar serving cocktails, karaoke and comedy. Speaking of comedy, you can definitely get a funny fix on at the Dallas Comedy House.
