    Medieval Times: Jousting and Eating without Utensils

    by grandmaR Written Sep 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since I had a rental car while I was in Dallas in 1997, and didn't have anyone to eat with, I decided to go to a performance of Medieval Times one evening. I enjoyed it thoroughly. We entered the 11th century style 'castle' over a fish-filled moat beneath the drawbridge. After milling around in the main hall where we could view instruments of torture and other static displays, we were divided into groups and filed into the Grand Ceremonial Arena.

    While we ate, the king and the knights played out a contest, where each group cheered for their own knight. The guys who did the jousting were VERY sexy, and while it was all pretend, with some anachronisms, it was a lot of fun.

    Dress Code: Menu:
    Garlic Bread
    Vegetable Soup
    Two Rounds of Select Beverages
    Roasted Chicken
    Spare Rib

    The Gingerman: The Gingerman

    by btex Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a good English style pub which has many different international beers on tap - as well as wine and food. I knocked back my share here. It usually gets pretty crowded on weekends. The bar was named after the book, The Ginger Man, by J.P. Donleavy - strangely enough, it's about a guy who drinks too much.

    Barley House: Barley House

    by btex Updated Jul 29, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One half of the Barley House is a bar - the other half is a restaurant. Many beers on tap. And, live music sometimes. There's a pool table or two in the back. The last time I was there it was pretty crowded...I used to hang out at Barley House before it expanded...when it was just a was a bit of a dive back then. They added a restaurant (east Side Grill,) and I guess it got more popular...cuz it's still around. Anyway, if ya get tired of the place, there are some more bars nearby, and Greenville avenue isn't very far away.

    Ad-Libs in Dallas....I...

    Ad-Libs in Dallas....

    I haven't gone in over a year...but almost everytime I have been recruited to go on stage...It is hilarious...Be sure you can laugh at yourself.
    Ad-Libs bases its award-winning show on a series of improvisational skills, scenes and songs performed by two teams of professional comedians. The comedy's subject matter comes directly from the audience, creating interactive entertainment that allows the crowd to become part of the show and feed on the frenzied Mardi Gras atmosphere. The comedy is quick, clean and unforgettable.

    One of the busiest comedy troupes in the country, Ad-Libs performs more than 300 shows a year at its own club in Dallas and tours nationally to colleges, businesses and special events. High in demand, Ad-Libs has created a loyal college and business following that has led the troupe to be consistently named ''Best Comedy Troupe.'

    Trinity Hall: Stiff drinks

    by Artcidic Updated Oct 5, 2006

    This is a lush bar plus a pub mixed all in one. I have never come to this place without getting a stiff drink. ..Well ...a FEW stiff drinks...heheh....Famous people have been known to show up/throw up randomly. Right next door is an Indie theatre called Angelika . If you don't want to drive home ...there is the Dart Rail just a couple of stumbles away.

    Dress Code: just wear clothes :)

    Cool River: Your yypical upscale "Dallas" bar

    by Cabana_Boy Written Oct 30, 2002

    If you are in the mid-cities region (i.e. Irving or Los Colinas), check out Cool River. Believe it or not, before this place opened up, there wasn't really any good bars for the after work crowd in the Irving area (there are a lot of large U.S. Corporations headquartered nearby).

    I describe Cool River as a "typical" upscale Dallas bar because it is one of those places where people seem to go to see and be seen. Despite the meat market feel of the place, Cool River has a great bar and kick ass pool tables (and the waitresses are incredible too). Cool River also has a nice cigar lounge and restaurant.

    Dress Code: Definitely dress up here... Although a coat and tie are not required, I would wear jeans and sneakers either (they may not even allow it).

    Duke's Original Roadhouse: Duke's Original Roadhouse

    by bruingirl Written Oct 14, 2003

    Casual place to dine during "normal" dining hours which gives way to a loud, almost college-like atmosphere of cheap drinks that seem to flow endlessly. There are several big screen TVs spread throughout this enormous place! They have a large outside patio with plenty of tables and benches. Girls come around with test tubes of various libations.

    Dress Code: Whatever goes.....Jeans and shirt works perfectly fine....

  • The Wild Turkey: Wild Turkey

    by agmoose02 Written Mar 3, 2004

    You want a happening bar with a diverse crowd of locals? Go down to The Wild Turkey. This is a Dallas bar with cheap draft beer and there is always someone to strike up an interesting conversation with. This bar is mostly for locals coming in after work or for an evening out with friends. The crowd is always diverse and usually with a good gender mix. If you are a foreigner in town on a visit, don't worry people here are always friendly and will probably be willing to buy you a round and shoot a game of pool to hear about your home country or travels.

    Dress Code: Come as you are.
