Dallas Observer's Description

This is the place where all Dallas rock music fans have been at one time in their lives. Visiting Trees is like a rite-of-passage for area high-school seniors, who have assured their parents that they're safe and sound at a friend's house. It's a place with great history and legend, like Kurt Cobain's infamous fight with a bouncer, and many ear-splitting performances from The Flaming Lips. In recent years Trees shut down and reopened with the help of new management. A fresh coat of paint and some remodeling around the bar has the once ramshackle operation looking as sleek as any ultra-lounge in town. A trip to Trees is a history lesson--plus you get to hear some great local and national bands.

    One of, if not THE best bar venue for live music! Sound is always top notch and no matter what band ya play in, you wanna play here! Famous, infamous, or unknown- Trees is where it's at!

    Awesome sound for one. Second, great national acts that shouldn't be playing in a bar setting - so it's more intimate. Third, great local acts that shouldn't be missed and a friendly staff and bartenders.

    Best live music venue in the metroplex! Say hi to me when you come in. Maybe we will have a shot.

    Drink prices have gone up. May as well go to July Alley in between bands.
