Check the website for events, we've had the most fun watching old movies like Ghostbusters or swing dancing to Ricky Derek. It's a beautiful building, a must see, at night, in East Dallas!
It's the balcony of the Lakewood theater- hence the name- and is about the size of just that. It's long and narrow, dark, smoky and dank, but it's charm makes up for the lack of space. It's attached to a restored 1938 Art Deco Movie Palace, which you are reminded of each time you go to the restroom and peak through the curtain. They have live jazz and open mic night, which could be painful if it weren't for their stiff martinis.
We were happy hour regulars- at least once a week. The bar used to be filled with an eclectic older crowd, throughout the evening. Now as the night progresses it caters to the SMU crowd, as evidenced by the bouncer carding you at the door. It seems the turnover in staff also led to the exploration of other options. When the Barley moved it lost more than it's smelly bathrooms.
This woodwork in this bar is beautiful. We went from work at 3:30 pm, parking was free, they have a great beer selection but we didn't try the food. It was WAY too hot to sit outside but the patio looks pretty cool. By the time we left the lot was full and a valet was out front. If you can get there early, try it out!
The burgers are great but the healthier options are too. It is easy to make a good choice for a light lunch, although it may lighten your pocket book as well.
The atmosphere is beautiful, I can imagine more so at night. The parking free at lunch.
The food was AMAZING! The Luis roll was SO good, they have other originals of which we tried most and they were all delicious. The sashimi was fresh, the sake selection - ok, the atmosphere has had a recent upgrade. My only complaint is small- the ginger was fibrous, as I know the real stuff is, it was just surprising.
Quick, professional service, super nice staff and a very clean atmosphere. Parking was a cinch in this uptown office. It doesn't hurt that Dr. Shaw is a cutie patootie, very careful and gentle.
Don't forget to take advantage of his late hours, so you can see him after work. He'll even give you a glass of wine and a wonderful head massage to unwind. Cute, clean salon, the only bummer is the parking- expect to pay.
Being the oldest saloon west of the Mississippi, we thought it would be cool to see. The female bartender however is coarse, rude and uninviting. If you want to experience an authentic western saloon where out of towners are unwelcome, visit the gold pan saloon. Make sure you don't move a table or chair for your large group without permission. They'll let you (and everyone else in the bar) know they don't like you touching the furniture. The booze is cheap and dogs are welcome, apparently.
Completely left us disillusioned with Haight Ashbury! We couldn't have been more disappointed with the WORST bartender I've ever met. It is one thing to be a rude bartender when people are waving money at you, whistling and snapping fingers. BUT when a girl just stands at the bar, waiting patiently and gets passed up not once, not twice but 5 times! it's just too much. There was only one female bartender and there were about 30 people at 5 pm. on a Tuesday, but the attitude was deliberate and we left after one beer. The groovy bar back with dreads came by and apologized twice for her neglect, and it wasn't until my boyfriend pulled me away pointing out that I had been standing there for 20 minutes that we left.
This is H&A's Beer-Nazi!
FIND ANOTHER BAR for great beer- they don't hold a patent- you'd be better off waiting for a delivery straight from the brewery.
