Dallas Observer's Description

This recently opened Henderson Avenue hot spot may look a lot like the original Austin location, but the designers of the Dallas branch of the "Feel Good Lounge" went with a more polished, less rock-and-roll feel that’s appropriately Dallas. The interior has the feel of a place to kick back, compatible with enjoying its top-shelf cocktails, like the sangria or the Hemingway, and chef de cuisine Bobby Weddle's casual grub. Customers can retire to either a leather couch inside or a plush banquette on the patio. They do so mostly for brunch, when the menu is long on traditional offerings -- eggs Benedict, migas, Bloody Mary. Fancy tacos, named by year, are also available. The "1993" taco includes scrambled eggs with sautéed portobello mushrooms, arugula, shallots and sun-dried tomatoes with goat cheese. The bar’s happy hour offers $1 off all drinks, 25 percent discounts on bottles of wine and half off select sharing plates, like pitas and hummus or the tasty fried macaroni-and-cheese balls.

    Today was Texas Independence Day, and J. Black's was having a small shindig to celebrate the occasion. In celebration of this most holiest of holidays, J. Black's had live Texas country and classic rock music courtesy of the Texas Pearl Band. These guys looked way past their prime, but they could still rock out.

    Today only, they had Texas beer specials and reduced-price Texas... More >>

    ejack81 - I've noticed you have been posting in quite a few places about "racism" at J. Blacks... please consider this...

    Does racist = dress code? If so, I think your comment needs to be reevaluated. Many places in Dallas have a dress code and the fact that J. Blacks is now enforcing one is causing quite the stir. Learn the code and evaluate your compliance with the code and... More >>

    Because you like drinking, the bar slings a dozen taps, nearly 60 wines ($23 Chateau St. Michelle riesling to $250 Perrier-Jouet Fleur), plus 16 cocktails, many of them tweaked classics.

    Parking can be tricky, but the sparkling sangria & Shrimp Ceviche make it all worth it

  • Christina R. on 09/04/10

    Best bar in Dallas! :-)

  • Tim G. on 05/11/10

    The new hot spot on Henderson. If you haven't tried it out yet, get here!

  • Vi N. on 05/12/10

    Get half off specific shared plates before 8pm. Avoid the Pancetta bites, they are barely filling, try the calamari or queso blanco. Wash down your half price pigs in a blanket with a cold beer!
