I LOVE The Slip Inn. As TC80 mentioned,it's diverse - old, young, white, black, hispanic, asian, you name it. It's very un-pretentious...random old school hip hop (esp on Thursday and Friday). If that's not your scene - or if you're looking for the "see and be seen" clubs, then you won't like it. It does tend to get super crowded and hot though.

Thanks for the info, guys. Sounds like fun. I'll invite DH. We've been looking for a nice place to dance a bit.

Have you heard about a place called "The Beauty Bar"? I've read several reviews online saying that they have nice drinks and a nice DJ but what about dancing? Is it similar to the Slip Inn?

And info on any other places to go out and have fun would be appreciated We've only heard about places like Gloria's to dance (salsa and stuff like that).

You can hit Beauty Bar and Slip Inn on the same night as they're right near each other. There's also J. Black's down the street which also has a DJ and dancing. Neither Beauty Bar nor J. Black's are quite as funky as Slip Inn though. Also recommended, but not for dancing, is Barcadia (across the street from Beauty Bar) which is a cool little bar known for its vintage video games and giant Jenga (the games are free on Tuesday nights).

Barcadia Dallas | 1917 N Henderson Avenue Dallas TX 75206 | 214.821.7300

All of the above are on Henderson Avenue but if you want to explore a little farther afield but still roughly in the same area, there are a couple of newer places to check out. There's Strangeways on Fitzhugh. Named after the album by the iconic British group The Smiths ("Strangeways, Here We Come"), Strangeways is a laid-back hangout bar with great music (Smiths, Massive Attack, etc.) though there's no dancing.

Then over on a recuperating Lower Greenville is Sundown, the new bar/beer garden/restaurant attached to the Granada Theater, an old movie theater that's now one of the best concert venues in the city.
