After the sun goes down, downtown Dallas heats up with a dizzying array of nighttime diversions to keep night owls entertained until the wee hours. From uber-hip lounges to neighborhood pubs and energetic live music venues, downtown Dallas has it all and more.
If your idea of a night out involves good music, then you'll want to check out Opening Bell Coffee, one of the best free live music venues in the city– or City Tavern, a cozy neighborhood pub featuring everything from jazz to rock. And, of course the house is always rocking at the legendary House of Blues.
For a more eclectic experience, The Nines offers everything from dancing to burlesque shows and aerial performances. Not to mention, it has a massive rooftop terrace boasting spectacular views of Downtown.
Fancy a hand-crafted drink in a posh setting? Then the Rattlesnake Bar, in the swanky Ritz-Carlton, may be just what you're looking for. There's also the Midnight Rambler, a sexy subterranean drinking den in the ultra-chic Joule Hotel; the SODA Bar, perched atop the hip NYLO South Side hotel; and The Mitchell, a handsome drinking haunt where Gin concoctions are being elevated into an art form.
And for those wanting a comfortable spot to unwind, The Woolworth offers exceptional drinks and a chilled-out vibe.
