Ideas for a Night on the Town in Dallas

Friends toasting with mugs of beer at a bar in Dallas

Whether you’re looking for a great bar to hang out with your friends or a quirky late-night date idea, Dallas has it all! Instead of spending your evening browsing Netflix, why not give the great nightlife of our city a go?

Gas Monkey Bar and Grill

If you are looking for your typical night-on-the-town experience, look no further than Gas Monkey Bar and Grill. With good food, good liquor, and good music, you can’t help but have fun with your friends. They frequently have awesome live music scheduled, so check out who they have playing!

The Candleroom

On the classier side of clubs, The Candleroom is a beautiful mix of classic and tech savvy, offering you a unique place to either spend an intimate evening with a date over drinks, or a cool new bar to try out with your Friday night crew.

Medieval Times

Want to escape the bar scene and go somewhere completely new and unique? Look no further than the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. Not only are you provided with a full 4-course dinner, but you are also treated to a two-hour medieval tournament, complete with real weapons and gorgeous horsemanship. Your evening will certainly be memorable with a trip to Medieval Times!

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center

This one requires a bit more planning, but it’s definitely worth the effort. While the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center has daylight hours and tours, they also offer two- to three-hour long nocturnal tours on specific evenings during the year, allowing you to observe the behavior of animals that are normally inactive during daylight hours. Check out their schedule and make your reservations for an exciting adventure!


If you are looking for something a little more active to do with your evening after sitting behind a desk all day, you may want to check out Topgolf. Reserve a hitting bay for practicing your golf swing with friends, play some mini-golf, or enjoy their full-service restaurant and bar.

Dallas, Texas, has great nightlife, and we hope that you get out and explore our great city and all it has to offer, no matter what sort of mood you’re in!
