Nightlife and Entertainment in DallasEdit This
The Dallas nightlife is so prolific that you might have to plan on several trips to the city before you can see it all. Still, if you only have a few days there, you're sure to enjoy a stop at any of the following:
The Lizard Lounge
One of Dallas' most popular nightclubs is the Lizard Lounge, 2424 Swiss Avenue. If electric dance music, hip hop, alternative and goth music is your thing, you'll regret it if you miss out on a trip to the Lizard Lounge. Live bands playing all of these types of music appear every weekend. Dress is casual, grunge or a little punk, depending on your tastes.
The Lizard Lounge is ideal for twenty-somethings and those who feel young at heart, but teens ages 18 and up are welcome to see the show, so long as they skip the bar. For those 21 and up, the bar serves a variety of cocktails and shots for $4 to $7, without a cover charge. The Lizard Lounge is open Thursdays through Sundays from nine at night until four in the morning. Tickets for each show average around $10 to $20, but you can sometimes print out a coupon at the Lizard Lounge's website to save $5. Get tickets ahead of time and expect long lines pre-show.
Dallas Theater Center
If spending a more low-key evening is how you picture the nightlife, plan to take in a play at the Dallas Theater Center, 3920 Black Gold Drive. One of the most popular live theaters in the Dallas area, the Dallas Theater Center offers a wide variety of shows, from modern to classic, from musical to drama to comedy. The stage juts out somewhat into the ground floor of the audience, making viewing a play here an immersive experience.
Tickets average from $15 to $78, depending on how close you want to be to the stage. Students and seniors get a discount. The theater often offers great, family-friendly evening entertainment for families with preteens and teens who can sit through a show, as shows often target kids' interests, such as superheroes or comedies.
The Library Bar
At 3015 Oak Lawn Avenue is the Library Bar, which is partnered with the Landmark Restaurant at the Warwich Melrose Hotel. This plush, relaxing location allows you to have a quiet evening as you sip a drink, listen to soft jazz music and get comfortable in a plush chair. With an atmosphere that rivals the local coffee shops, the Library Bar is perfect for the solo traveler or couples who enjoy a quiet evening with their nightcap. Wines, beer and cocktails average $3 to $9 a glass. The bar is open seven days a week until midnight, 1:00 a.m. or 11:00 p.m.
