Printable version of the city guide

St. Pete's Dancing Marlin
One of my favorite places to eat (best steak fingers in the state of TX), and listen to music. Pete's is in the heart of Deep Ellum, which is an excellent scene for local music venues. When visiting Pete's, I imagine it's like what it would have been to visit a real-life Cheers. Fantastic place!

Adair’s Saloon
Enthusiastically supported by Nimbix staff as the best dive bar in Dallas!

Lee Harvey’s
My favorite dive bar in the city, the name says it all

Midnight Rambler
Excellent craft cocktails located in the basement of the swanky Joule Hotel

The Rustic
The Rustic is a local favorite, grab a cold beer and listen to live music.

Trinity Groves
A cool new area minutes from downtown, it is a restaurant incubator concept.
Try Saint Rocco where they have awesome views of the city skyline

True Food Kitchen
Delicious food and conscious nutrition go hand in hand at True Food Kitchen, without sacrificing flavor. My favorite dish is Edamame Dumplings and my go-to beverage is the Farmers Market Sangria. There’s no dish that can’t be customized at True Food Kitchen. With Gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options you’re sure to find a dish that will satisfy your craving for a good meal after a long day at SC, in an environment that’s relaxing.
Leo Reiter, Nimbix

Mudhen Meat and Greens
Located at the Dallas Farmers Market, a true farm to table restaurant

The Common Table
Located in the trendy “Uptown” area of downtown

Pecan Lodge
Best BBQ in Dallas! Usually has a line around the building and when the run out of food, they are out for the day.

Dallas World Aquarium
Nice peaceful walk with lots of greenery and birds. This is the place to go if you want to get away from all the noise after a busy day at SC. Don't let the name fool you, it's not only fish.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Unique architecture and lots of levels to see. Tech nerds like me will enjoy the robotics area with various sensors and fun activities to experiment.

Fadi's Mediterranean Grill
Delicious Lebanese/Mediterranean cuisine with many options! I love the pasta salad, kababs, and various meat options. Cafeteria/buffet style and nice ambiance. Don't forget to try the baklava and Turkish coffee.

Lower Greenville is the place to be, from afternoon drinks and dinner to hip snacks and late night drinks and dancing.

Truck Yard
Food trucks and several bars with a tree house all in one place!!! drops mic…

Steel City Pops
So think hipster popsicle flavors like horchata or Jasmine green tea but then all your classics as well. You can get them dipped in chocolate and other toppings. They have some flavors that are more creamy like ice cream too which I like. A personal favorite is coffee popsicle dipped in dark chocolate. Super tasty treat!

The Old Crow
One of the few remaining bars from before Greenville's recent facelift, a popular spot for locals and just a nice place to have a beer for a large group.

Ships Lounge
Ok, so full disclosure Ships holds a special place in my heart as a college dive bar so have that in mind should you drop in. Ships is a shotgun style building, a relic of old Greenville that stood the test of time as things were renovated and reworked around it. If you want to have a drink with the locals and enjoy the way things used to be while jamming out to an old jukebox, have a drink at ships.

Deep Ellum where the music lives:

Double Wide
Think doublewide trailer (cause we're fancy) with a music venue attached. Fun unique bar with a great atmosphere. Try the Yoohoo Yeehaw its like alcoholic chocolate milk and is not as bad as it sounds.



Shake Shack – Located right off of Mckinney Ave, there’s a nice little burger joint with outside seating and delicious ice cream.

Crimson Pho – If you’re a fan of Pho or Vietnamese food in general, you should check this place out. The pork chargrilled rice dish is my go-to.



The most electric restaurant in Downtown, located in the Design district is Town Hearth. Nothing is standard!

Need a real culinary treat? Stephan Pyles – Flora Street Cafe will never disappoint!

The Ginger Man – This Uptown pub has a comfortable beer garden in back. Ask the bartenders about a particular beer, play a friendly game of darts or sit back and enjoy a pint with your fellow patrons.

House of Blues – House of Blues is the ultimate night out. It's where great food sets the stage for amazing live concerts. From VIP experiences with the world's best artists to our world-famous Gospel Brunch on Sundays, House of Blues is truly where music and food feed the soul.

Spaghetti Warehouse – Spaghetti Warehouse makes every meal feel like a celebration, with the kind of delicious, freshly prepared Italian food that everybody loves, served in a festive atmosphere.



Fort Worth Stockyards
A bit of a drive but if you're looking for the western heritage experience this is the place to go.

While in Fort Worth visit the Modern Art Museum, dedicated to collecting, presenting, and interpreting international developments in post–World War II art in all media.


There is no better steakhouse experience in Dallas than that found at Nick and Sam's Steakhouse.

Nobu Dallas offers a truly unique Sushi experience. Although the investment for dinner may be substantial, the service, atmosphere, and experience are well worth it. And there is no match for the Scallops in Jalapeno Salsa. 

After dinner, wind down at Javier's Lounge & Cigar Bar. You can't bring your own but you can select from a wide variety of quality cigars while enjoying a drink from the full bar. Javier's is a great spot to network or just to get away in the evening.
