Crowded, but Fun 9/2/2010

Besides when it is extremely crowded, I enjoy going to the Loon. The atmosphere is very chill and laid back and the drinks are cheap and strong. If you are looking for a good stiff drink and a low key evening, this is the place. more

Strong Drinks Yes, But Too Shady 1/1/2009

A little too shady/dangerous for my tastes. Had my drink laced with something (unfortunately did not realize until the next day when i regained memory) and then my hat and phone were stolen from the counter. I'll pass from now on. Pros: ummmm...hmmmmmmm Cons: seems to bring in the shady crowd more

A Very Versatile Bar 5/3/2008

The Loon is a fantastic bar that can be just about whatever you want it to be. Need dinner at 7pm on sunday? They got it. Looking for a hook up at midnight on Saturday? Check. In town on business on a Monday and you need a place to have a few drinks and work on that proposal due in the morning? No prob. The reason for its versatility is four-fold. 1. Great staff. These folks don't mess about while on duty. Even if you are the only guy in the bar...they won't be chatting with each other and ignoring you. Whoever trained them did a very good job. 2. Stiff drinks. Hell...stiff drinks are useful just about 24 hours a day. If I want a drink at midnight or noon...I want it to be a stiff one. 3. Good food. Food here is restaurant quality +...not crappy greasy bar food like some Bars and Grills in Uptown. 4. Last and perhaps most importantly....the crowd changes in both numbers and attitude right when you want it too. Like clockwork...this place has just the right crowd at just the right times. Doesn't happy in most bars. But you'll never see a saturday where it isn't packed with single women and you'll never come on a sunday when it isn't chilled out people talking and just hanging out. I live in the Cedar Springs/Uptown Area and I generally have a drink at one of the many bars in uptown every night of the week. Of them all...the Loon definitely ranks as one of my all time favorites. Pros: Stiff Drinks, Good Service, Great Food, Excellent Ambience Cons: Sometimes a line during busy hours. more

BEST BAR ANYWHERE 3/7/2008

I worked @ The Loon Bar of Dallas for 8 years. The owner is a kick in the pants, but sure as hell knows how to run a business! Yeah, no doubt the drinks beat anyplace I've ever worked or drank, but kudos to the staff. These young good-lookers run their asses off to provide fast and furious service to keep up with Gonzo's standards. As for the clientele, I'll always be fond of the "old-timers" day crowd, be ready to hear some great "Loon Lore". I quit drinking some time ago but if ever I find myself in Dallas again, The Loon is the first place you'll find me. Congrat's Gonzo! Pros: EVERYTHING Cons: NOTHING more

awesome awesome bar 10/15/2007

bartenders know your name and are always happy to see you. People are always happy and in a good mood and it has some of the best food (not just bar food) i have ever had. Pros: great bartenders and great service and great food Cons: none more

If you wanna drink, go here. 6/29/2007

This place is the most unsuspecting awesome bar in Dallas. It's in an old shopping center next to a Subway! They make the strongest drinks in Uptown, and maybe all of Dallas. Yes, it's smoky, but it's a bar with low ceilings...deal with it. Good bar and table service, lots of TVs, pool table, friendly people who do their jobs well. Go to the Loon. more

Why would you want to be anywhere else 8/10/2006

This is the bar where everyone knows your name. The staff knows your drink and at times it is waiting for you before you sit down. The this is the place to be for all the Dallas games. When the Cowboys and Mavericks play it is like being at your own house with all your friends. This is the bar to be not only for the drinks and atmosphere but the occasional celebrity that come in to party. more

Rocks 2/17/2006

I haven't been in a while, but when I lived in the area, I was there all the time. The drinks are awesomely strong -- truly the Loon is the home of the honest drink in dallas. Plenty of cool people w/out the 'tude... Keep cool. more

A Classic 10/27/2005

The Loon is consistent, reliable, and a great place to meet friends and just hang out. The drinks are super-strong and the staff is friendly without being obnoxious. It's a nice respite from the tony attitude across the street. more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    This longtime favorite hangs its hat on a relaxed atmosphere. The exterior is nondescript, but inside, dim lighting and low tunes set the scene for an informally hip group of party-goers. A brick wall with three wide open archways bisects a square bar; on each side are separate rooms that burst with loud conversation. Midnight-black tabletops abound as groups gravitate toward the secondhand couches and recliners at the foot of two stone fireplaces.

    The Draw
    The bar is known for some of the stiffest drinks in town. Casual dress allows patrons to be themselves in an unpretentious environment that successfully combines bar mingling with seating space. The attractive patrons munch on surprisingly tasty dishes that range from a hearty $5 Loon burger to the tender $17 filet mignon.
