    The stage set-up is strange. Being front and centre means blocking everyone's view..

    Bartenders were great, live music, and if theres not live music they'll play anything you want on their laptop. Make sure to wear your hipster glasses.

    Great place to come for live music, awesome happy hour specials and a burger. This spot is also owned by Gavin DeGraw, which makes visiting even cooler.

    Dez Bryant approved bar. Take a shot of maker's mark, drop it in a half glass of red bull and bomb that.
