Not only is Dallas home to the flagship Neiman Marcus, it also offers the eclectic Bishop Arts District and historic Highland Park, referred to as the “Rodeo Drive of Dallas.” The city isn’t all big hats and cowboy boots, either; in addition to high-end retail, the city boasts world-class museums and restaurants.

Top 5 / North America

Dallas has a fantastic nightlife scene with many bars and restaurants catered toward a younger crowd of adults. Visiting these bars is a great way for travelers to interact with locals and other travelers. It’s also a good way to spend the night by having conversations over a couple beers.

Addison Point

For a bar with a great karaoke scene, visit Addison Point. It has been open since 1970 and could use some repairs, but the bar is standing strong and has become a popular local destination. Karaoke happens every night except for Tuesdays after 10 p.m.

The Dubliner

Check out The Dubliner for a good Irish pub. There is always a sports game playing, mainly soccer or another popular European sport. It’s a welcoming pub with a fireplace and an outdoor patio. The night won’t be complete without ordering a Guinness and the popular cheese board.

The Round-Up Saloon & Dance Hall

For a livelier evening head to The Round-Up Saloon & Dance Hall is a cowboy-themed gay bar. Located on the popular Cedar Springs strip, this dance hall offers some of the best music in the city. Locals and tourists spend the night dancing and sweating on floor. There are also pool tables and karaoke for those who need a break from dancing.

Craft and Growler

For beer lovers, Craft and Growler is a can’t-miss bar. With more than 40 beers and ciders to choose from, this bar is perfect for a good tasting session. The bar has floor-to-ceiling windows giving it an open and airy vibe.

High & Tight Barbershop

For a bar with some character, choose to drink at the High & Tight Barbershop. This barbershop/bar hybrid has a barbershop in the front with a bar in the back. It makes customers feel like they’re part of a secret society, hidden away.

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
