Better than Houston, Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Tampa or anywhere else in the southern states except Miami.

Artsyguy,

Thanks for all of those links!! But are they all really necessary? Like you have to spend 2 minutes of your time trying to convince someone of Dallas' absolute superiority in every way shape and form over Austin?? That is actually kinda funny. Well people do get a little bothered on this site when you don't back your sh-t up!!

They have nightlife in greenville avenue, deep ellum, henderson road, cedar springs, and Mckinney street. Obzeet is a stand alone party place but is closer to the burbs. Go out to Dallas and party some time. Bring your friends.

Try Obzeet: Obzeet

or go party at Excuses: eXcuses eXtreme cafe (eXcuses eXtreme cafe) | MySpace

do you like wild male strip clubs? Try the tin room: The Tin Room - Dallas, TX

Lee Harvey's is a popular pub: Lee Harvey's - 214-428-1555

Do you like liberal dance-clubs? Try Oaklawn: Party at the Block

UT-Dallas has the largest campus of any public college. It also has plenty of events that are open to the public: Comet Calendar, The Official Event Calendar for UT Dallas

The arts community is huge. And a chunk of the fun is located on dragon street: moderndallas.art features Dallas area art galleries and featured artists

Kismet and others on Greenville: ::: Welcome to Kismet Lounge, Dallas Texas ::: Lower Greenville Dallas nightlife, Lower Greenville Dallas bars & night clubs, night life in Lower Greenville Dallas

W Hotel has a few trendy bars in it: W Dallas Victory Hotel (Dallas, TX) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor

You are right. I shouldn't take 2 minutes out of my time to help with this topic.

I believe The Lizard Lounge is an old theater turned into a dance-club. It has a very South Congress vibe. And if it sucks then why is it still in existence?

I believe Dragon street renovated itself and became an art district in 2005.

Sue Ellens expanded 2 years back.

That's certainly the truth. You'd do well to emulate Artsy's recent posts and put some positive links about Dallas in your replies... you know, give them some credibility.

Also remember that Dallas doesn't have the longhorns or the hillbilly country. (lets just for the moment forget about the cedar hills that traverse the southern metroplex south of I-20) As for the longhorns, the stupid Cowboys don't bleed orange. And how dare they build the largest indoor stadium in the country for nearly 1 billion dollars. It's just wrong man. Screw the billions planned in roadway construction, forget the vast areas of incredible wealth, and by golly forget about all them DAMN business travellers that come to Dallas. AND FOR WHAT??? It's a scam I tell you, A SCAM.

Apologies - 7 years. I had you mixed up with mlassoff. 7 years is still a long time to spend somewhere you openly detest.
