Dallas-Fort Worth Nightlife

Both Dallas and Fort Worth are home to world-class art and nature museums, concert halls, and lively bar and dining scenes.

Much of Dallas bar life swirls around lower and upper Greenville Avenue, north of Downtown. Other hot spots include Uptown, especially along McKinney Avenue, Victory Park, anchored by American Airlines Center, and Deep Ellum, just east of Downtown. Fort Worth's scene

is mostly Downtown and in the Stockyards.

The best way to sample the local culture is to check the nightlife and entertainment listings in the local newspapers or alternative weeklies, free at many restaurants and hotels. GuideLive.com, a Dallas Morning News site, offers daily suggestions. It's also wise to talk to a concierge, who can tell you about the best place to catch a late-night meal, movie, or a drink.
