10 Best Greenville Avenue Bars: Where Dallas Gets Fun

Dallas is a fun place to be, and Greenville Avenue is one of the best spots to find the party! Lower Greenville Avenue is where the annual St. Patrick's Day street party occurs each year. The crowd on Greenville Avenue is varied, but it's one of the most popular places with the younger crowds who want to kick back and bar hop. That's because this neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of bars, so it's really convenient for visitors who want to go to several establishments in one night without having to waste time driving around. No matter what you're in the mood for, Greenville Avenue truly has it all.

If you're looking for a classy lounge atmosphere, complete with bottle service and a European DJ spinning tunes all night, you can go to Eight Lounge. This type of place can get very crowded, but they're worth the effort if you want to mingle with some of the most beautiful people in Dallas. If you're looking for a more low-key evening, Stan's Blue Note is always a fun place to watch a game and drink beer with friends, while Ships Lounge is the best dive bar in all of Dallas. Visitors who love imported beer can't miss the Libertine Bar, which also has the best pub food in all of Texas.
