Dallas Observer's Description

This is an easy-going restaurant and bar that loves a good rock show. While the menu, beginning with lunch, doesn’t stray too far from the normal pub-grub choices (e.g., fish and chips, burgers, gigantic stuffed jalapeños), a po-boy and a pulled pork sandwich are also available. Customers can enjoy $3 drink specials or beer-and-a-shot pairings. Don’t be surprised if owner Josh Florence is the bartender serving it to you. Arriving before 10 p.m. is your best chance of snagging a table to take in the tunes from a long roster of bands on a Friday night. Thanks in part to the amiable staff, its well-worn wood decor and a kickin’ soundtrack, this joint oozes a neighborly vibe.

    Really nice place. Lots of indie kids hanging around. They have some pretty decent shows come through too.

    This bar reminds me of Chicago with the dark wood and vertical layout. Has some of the best bar food you'll find in Downtown Dallas, and their music line-ups are always killer.

    Come in for a Dirty Dusty - a PBR and a shot of Jack for 4 bucks!

  • John S. on 05/05/10

    Come out on Wednesday nights for "Home Sessions". See bands in a very intimate setting. Buy one Entree and get the 2nd for free. $3 wells and discounted bottled wines.
