The Prophet Bar

Map & Directions 2548 Elm St.
Dallas, TX 75226-1420


Dallas Observer's Description

The banner on owner Russell Hobbs' website for this bar and venue only hints at the rich history behind his involvement in Deep Ellum: "The Prophet Bar, Established 1985, Re-Established 2007." It's a staple venue in Deep Ellum's on-and-off again cycles for the past 25 years -- sorta like the historic Dallas entertainment district itself. Hobbs' original Prophet Bar was an instrumental catalyst in Deep Ellum's '80s heyday, when the scene spawned a burgeoning bunch of talented local artists and musicians. The stage regularly featured locals like The Reverend Horton Heat, TimBuk3 and The New Bohemians. In 2007, when this incarnation of the Prophet Bar opened in the old Gypsy Tea Room space, Hobbs kept the legacy of a fantastic venue and bar alive. Brick walls line the sides of the narrow main room, with the stage in back and the bar on the left side leaving a wide-open space for people to hang out and mingle between sets. Or you can vie for one of the few booths up front. Note that for bigger shows, the adjacent venue, The Door, becomes The Prophet Bar's "Big Room."
