    Mamacita's: Nice Sports Bar in Clint (El Paso)

    by Basaic Written Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After dinner I had a rum and coke, and watched more of the baseball game on the big screen TVs. The rum and coke was strong enough and the waitress cute; but not the model for the sign. The music was in Spanish for the most part.

    Matador's: Upscale Sports Bar in Terrell

    by Basaic Written Mar 8, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Matador Club is an upscale sports bar aimed at adults especially sports enthusiasts. They have flatscreen TV's to keep sports fans entertained along with a digital online Jukebox for today's hits in music. When I was there the bar had a number of attractive young women inside. I heard it can get very crowded on Friday and Saturday Nights.

    Dress Code: I saw some people in jeans and some dressed well.

    The Flying Saucer: Great beer selection at The Flying Saucer!

    by Dutchnatasja Written Feb 22, 2008

    The Flying saucer is located in the heart of Sundance Square. It’s an old two story building with the main bar on the first floor. The interior is like an English pub with a twist of Texas. The walls are covered with personalized plates to honor those who have tasted at least 200 different kind of beers. Some persons have two or even three plates. What more can I say than well done! If you want a plate as well, you have to become a member of the UFO Club (±$14).

    There is also dinnerware on the ceiling that looks like ‘Delfts Blauw’, which is typically Dutch.

    This bar has over 70 beers on tap and many varieties in bottles. They have lagers, ambers, browns, pales, domestic, or imported; they even got ‘beer soup’ (sorry, didn’t try it). In the summer you can sit on the roof patio and if you’re lucky you can enjoy the live music of the ‘8.0 bar’ across the street. Especially on Wednesdays when the band that plays at ‘8.0 bar’ is performing outside. The Flying Saucer has live-entertainment on Thursday and Sunday night.

    For those who like to smoke cigars, this bar is cigarette and cigar friendly! If you didn’t bring your own cigars; no worry….not only do they have a large beer list, but also a huge cigar list! What more do you need; beer cigars, great atmosphere and for the men Britney look a likes in school uniforms (the waitresses)…..many say this is heaven!

    You still don’t know were to go with your friends?? Well, hurry up and go to the Flying Saucer. It’s a great place to go hang out!

  • the back porch: port aransas

    by rancherpowell Written Aug 14, 2007

    This open air watering hole made us feel like we were FINALLY on an island. Mingling with the tourists , locals & fishermen we lazed away an entire afternoon. Later we returned for the live music scene.......Augie Meyers no less! aka Texas Tornadoes & Sir Douglas Quintet. The place was on fire with activity .......dancers, families, singles......We had a big time. Apparently the live music scene on this quirky little island is one of Texas best kept secrets. My wife counted 8 locations with music. Locals were friendly,....tourists were , plentiful. We're told Spring Winter & Fall are best times to avoid crowds. We'll definetly go back. The back Porch seems to be the epicenter

    6th St. Bar District, Austin Texas: Austin - 6th St

    by ATXtraveler Written Jan 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is almost impossible to interview a 18-30 yr old person who has visited Austin, TX and not have 6th St. mentioned at least one time in their recollection of their time here.

    That is a true testament to everything that is available to a tourist here on 6th.

    From Jazz Bars, to pubs, to dance and night clubs... you can get what you want at a great price! Daily drink specials, free entrance, and lots of street vendors make for a great night!

    The site listed below is a great resource to learn what is going on!

    Dress Code: This is Austin... you will see cowboy boots, flip flops, and also tuxedos... its just a matter of who is there... there is no dress "code" though.

    West End District: Dallas - West End

    by ATXtraveler Written Jan 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the 1800's one of the founders of Dallas, John Neely Bryan established a trading post on the bluff of the Trinity River with the Caddo Indians.

    As business grew, so did the West End of Dallas. The West End was the main location for the train station, and as the automobile replaced the train as the main mode of transportation in the US, the West End's commercial area lost signficsant importance.

    Recently, there has been a major re-vitalizationinitiative which has brought in significant economic development.

    ** The West End is a Historic District registered with the National Register.

    ** The West End attracts 7 million people a year.

    ** 300 businesses in the West End employ over 40,000 people.

    COOL RIVER CAFE: Good live entertainment!

    by Perucha Written Apr 19, 2003

    Actually it's a steakhouse and southwestern grill restaurant, but there's more than that; they have also bar, pool tables, cigar room, and a good live music.
    It caters to all senses; taste, feel, sight, sound, and smell!

    More Fort Worth

    City Streets

    This is Fort Worth's greatest multi-venue entertainment complex. There is actually five clubs under one roof! ATLANTIS is a dance club with a nautical-theme featuring hit music from the 70s and 80s. STRAY CATS: has keyboard comedians duelling and audiences participating in singalongs. THE BLUE MONKEY LOUNGE is a karaoke bar. CAGES has the current Top 40 contemporary dance music along with a multi-level dance floor. EASY STREET DELI features a full service bar and coffee drinks. (425 Commerce St.).

    J&J Blues Bar

    J&J Blues Bar is tucked away in a little corner of Ft Worth. A well known spot for Blues and R&B fans. Looking more like a large tin shack, inside you will find a cosy atmosphere with table and chairs (with room to move) and a bar. Flashy old neon signs and gaudy advertising add some colour and for conversation, an assortment of bra’s dangle from anything they can find to be draped over. Just the coolest little place. J&J’s hosts numerous well known local and national blues bands including some great legends. (937 Woodward Street, Ft Worth).

    If you're expecting to see big hats, steel guitars and fiddles, you will find them here but Dallas also sings the blues, folk, jazz, rock and roll and heavy metal. There are comedy clubs, piano bars and nightclubs. The West End is a great place to hang out, sit outside, have a drink and listen to the orchestra of different sounds from the various bars. Planet Hollywood is also in the West End.

    The American's Airline Centre hold many concerts and other events like Barnum & Bailey Circus, Ringling Brother, Disney on Ice and the Harlem Globetrotters. The complex seats 19,200 for basketball, 18,000 for hockey and 20,000 for other events.
