Lowest Greenville after Dark: A Welcoming Hub of Laid-Back Nighttime Diversions

Although it maintains a laid-back vibe, Lowest Greenville doesn’t slow down just because the sun goes down. Whether it's a date night, a friendly outing or just a place to chill out after work, the area offers some of the city's best spots to sip, savor and unwind.

For a fun and funky night out, head over to Truck Yard, a sprawling urban playground filled with food trucks, mismatched lawn furniture and a bar perched up in a tree.

Perhaps even funkier is Single Wide, a delightfully dive-y haunt adorned with wall-to-wall hillbilly clutter. Here you can drink Boone's Farm martinis and rock out with resident DJs. Folks also flock to The Old Crow for cheap drinks and a friendly game of pool. And when it comes to dive bars, Ships Lounge beats out all the rest.

For live music and a game of darts, head over to the Crown and Harp, a combination Irish pub and British pub in one. Or if you fancy a cocktail and craft brew, then the Libertine Bar is for you. Speaking of craft beer, Dallas Beer Kitchen and Bottle Shop-World Beer Company are veritable hop havens for beer lovers.

504 Bar & Grill is a classy spot that draws in everyone from game-watchers, craft beer drinkers and cocktail sippers to parents with their kids in tow.

Before the night is out, be sure to stop in at Mudsmith, a hipster coffee haven that serves stellar java as well as craft beer, wine and specialty adult concoctions.



While much has changed along Lowest Greenville in recent years, this neighborhood haunt has remained essentially the same for decades, with the exception of a new outdoor patio. And that's exactly how the Crow's loyal following of fans want to...  Read More
