The Loft

Map & Directions 1135 S. Lamar St.
Dallas, TX 75215-1036
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining, Private Party


Dallas Observer's Description

"Located just south of downtown and above Gilley's Saloon at the Palladium, The Loft's 3,000-square-foot balcony and patio lounge is one of several venues housed in the Gilley's Dallas Complex." But it's The Loft that's gained a reputation for offering its patrons one of the area's best nighttime views of the Dallas skyline. Then there's the fact that The Loft's stage is known for featuring a wide variety of touring indie/trendy acts of the up-and-comer variety. The Loft also boasts a stage, dance floor, full bar, comfy couches and tables and chairs. Even if the parking lot fills up on a very busy night, there's usually parking to be found in the area.
