Worst Doorman in Dallas! 12/29/2010

the doorman at this bar is one of the worst in Dallas! He just refused service to 25 sober adults (30+ age range) and INSULTED every women in our party! more

Gun Point Robberies 12/2/2009

Gun Point Robberies, Car Jackings & Beatings on parking lot Pros: Cheap Drinks Cons: Dangerous Neighborhood more


The bar has most definitely changed my whole perspective on bars. It's the coolest, funnest place in the whole of the States. I have traveled all around the States and have yet to find a bar quite like this. Everyone is so friendly, from the doorman to the staff and to the clientele. There's something here for everyone regardless of your orientation. Drinks are cheap and strong and the juke box is legendary. If you can't deal with the gay scene and trannies you should come here to broaden your mind (that's directed at you Dallasgirl2-get over yourself!) Personally, I think the staff are great-friendly and very generous with their measures. The atmosphere is like none other. This place is in a league of its own. If you come here once, you'll definitely become a regular! Pros: Broad spectrum of people, you can dress up or dress down-no one will bat an eyelid. Cheap and strong drinks. Cons: Only two bathrooms, situated at the entrance of the bar. (They do provide extra facilities outside) more

Watch it. 8/30/2008

I would be careful about the ""people watching"", lest your natural interest and curiosity about people of all kinds more

The Grapevine will change your life, seriously. 8/19/2008

If you want to know why the bathroom lines are so long, ask the large Hispanic man standing by the pool table. The way I see it, minus the free and discounted drinks, the 12 hours of free jukebox music that I talked the jukebox repairman in to, and saving me from a really bad relationship by bringing out the worst in people- The Grapevine still owes me about $4,500 for rehab. Pros: Lots Of Courtneys Cons: Plenty of Kurts more

Laid-back clientele, rude staff 6/18/2008

This is a gay-friendly bar, but as long as you don't have an attitude about being gay or straight, you'll have a nice evening. A wide variety of people call this bar their home, and if you like people-watching, this isn't too bad of a place. Be warned, however. If you order drinks at the bar and don't tip with every drink, you'll be refused service, loudly and publicly, and the bartender, a 30-ish gentleman with long hair and a beard, will shout obscenities at you. The clientele? friendly. The staff? Disappointing. Those of us who grew up tipping every other round or at the end of the night will find ourselves out on our ear. Pros: Great happy hour, decent people-watching, parking on nearby streets, nice ambiance Cons: Inconsiderate bar staff more

Small gay friendly dive 6/7/2008

Nice small dive. However unless you are gay friendly I wouldn't suggest going. I was there all but 20 mins when i realized that I should have done more resreach before coming. I then finished my beer is eased back out. Pros: Nice out side area Cons: Cry-game experience more

Best neighborhood bar 4/13/2008

whenever we come in from Houston we always go to The Grapevine Bar, very friendly people, great atmosphere, and the Bartenders are wonderful Pros: drinks are great, atmoshere is the best, cant beat the bartenders Cons: sometimes it takes awhile to get in the restroom, go early more

Fun stuff~ 1/4/2008

My brother goes her often and we tried it once before.....not the best night to try....rainy outside and COMPLETELY packed. So, gave it no thought for months....then decided to get my bro a gift card and went back. My friends and I had so much fun....such a friendly place, patrons and staff. I asked for cucumber water and was laughed at...loved it! Anyway, fun group of people and you never know who you might run into. Looking forward to hanging out on the patio when it gets a little warmer. Watch out for the frozen drinks if you are a light weight like me....they are full of alcohol, but yummy! Regardless, try it and keep an open mind....girls like girls & boys, and most boys just like boys. : ) Pros: everyone is nice and happy to see you! Cons: like everyone else says....bathroom line is long more

Awesome bar, great bartenders, fun atmosphere, not your typical Dallas bar! 9/10/2007

I love this place! I always have a great time here. They have an awesome patio with lots of trees and a rooftop deck, the best jukebox in town and nice strong drinks. I have never had a problem here with security or any of the patrons. Everyone just comes here to relax and have a good time and not worry about being ""seen"". Their frozen drinks are the best, very strong and refreshing. The decor is funky velvet chairs and cool old light fixtures but they always keep it fresh, every time I'm in I see something new. Happy hour drinks are only $2 and is more laid-back but at night it's a dance party. Pros: Bartenders, music, patio Cons: Line for the bathroom more

good bar; overzealous security 7/7/2007

Having a great time listening to one of the best juke boxes I have seen. Got bumped by a group of drunks that started acting obnoxious. They were friends with the security guard and I got thrown out. I was there for 2 beers for about an hour. they other guys were trashed. The kicker was the tazer he shoved in my face while leaving. He was going to zap both my wife and I. He did look like the type of moron who would sit there for hours wondering what it would be like to zap someone with it. So overall cool place, but security is not too bright. Pros: cool jukebox Cons: not too bright security staff more

Great Atmosphere 3/14/2007

My cousin introduced me to this bar. It's great hangout. Sometimes it is crowded, but it is definitely a good place to people watch. I live in Oklahoma City, but I try to get down there everytime I am in Dallas. The drinks are nice and strong, but aren't expensive. I think my favorite is the frozen bellinis on Sunday for $2! I've been there several times now and have yet to meet anyone there that had that ""meet market"" mentality. It's very relaxed and comfortable. It's definitely someplace you can go to in jeans. It's a great place to just hang out and have a few drinks. Pros: atmosphere, drink specials, people, bartenders Cons: bathroom line, crowded, limited parking more

One of the Best bar in Dallas..(my favorite) 2/25/2007

This place is so fun, I come from Canada for 2 week, spend a lot of time there... People a so social and friendly. I could not imagine how this bar could be better. The basketball court outside is very fun too. more

Horrible experience here! 2/10/2007

I went to this place with my husband and two of his friends last night. It was awful. One of the guys that was with us was groped by a man at this place. It was way too crowded and there were a lot of men ""eyeing"" my husband and his two friends. One odd-looking man was staring at me like he was going to murder me. We hated this place. It's just bad. I would not recommend this to anyone. Pros: Umm... none Cons: Too many people and extremely innapropriate behavior more

Fantastic... 7/31/2006

This place is so great. My boyfriend and I stopped in on a wimb and LOVED it. The people are awesome, never ever rude. The bathroom line may be a little long at times (There are only 2) but it's a GREAT people watching bar. Pros: Music, people Cons: Bathroom line more

Stylishly Hip 4/29/2006

My girlfriend and I stopped in last night for a few drinks for the first time, LOVED IT! Very cool atmosphere, laid-back and friendly. We will definately go again. Pros: Inexpensive, Friendly, Comfortable Cons: Crowded more
