Nestled between Uptown, Lower Greenville Avenue and the town of Highland Park, lies the trendy Knox-Henderson corridor, a pedestrian-friendly area flush with shops, restaurants and enough after-dark diversions to please even the most discerning night-crawler.
Whether you're looking for a great place to party or just want to have a few mind-blowing drinks with friends, the array of slick cocktail bars, craft beer pubs and cozy booze-filled hangouts here promises plenty of action to keep night owls rollicking into the wee hours.
Start you stroll at The Old Monk, the neighborhood's most venerated–and most charming pub– offering a solid selection of beer, food and one of the most lively outdoor patios on Henderson. Or if you're a wine aficionado, head further down the street to Veritas Wine Room. It's an intimate, convivial place to sip and savor from a selection of over 400 different wines.
If you want to brush up on your Mortal Kombat skills or just revel in nostalgia by playing Pac-Man, stop into Barcadia Bar & Grill, a dedicated retro arcade games bar serving up food, booze, and of course– classic quarter arcade games.
Speaking of retro, Henderson Avenue is also home to the popular retro-beauty shop themed Beauty Bar, a place where you can drink, dance and have your nails decked out for $10.
When you're ready to get the party rolling, be sure to stop into The Dram and The Eberhard to soak up killer cocktails in a no-expense-spared ambiance.
Though the majority of nightlife options are tucked along the Henderson Avenue side of the neighborhood, be sure to hit the Knox Street side to check out Henry's Majestic, a handsome neighborhood tavern with terrific food, cocktails and live music to boot.
