Owner Costa Arabatzis comes from a Greek and Italian heritage. He opened this contemporary Greek café in 1994. The brilliant white walls, elegant mirrors and black and white floors complementing the dark wood tables and chairs create a luxurious ambiance. The European-style garden patio and fountain provide a wonderful outdoor setting. Ziziki's features wonderfully delicious Mediterranean cuisine—try the Greek island chicken, a delightful entree spiced with rosemary, garlic and Greek seasonings.
Trece, Spanish for 13, is located within the former Sipango space and is an experience not to be missed. The talented chef spent more than 20 years at the world-renowned Mansion on Turtle Creek and the selections offer more than just Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican regional dishes. With a menu heavily favoring lobster, you can sample dishes like Lobster Nachos with Jalapeno Jelly, Lobster Mango Margarita or Lobster Crepes. Entrees include Halibut encrusted with Pumpkin Seed and Tangerine Sauce, Grilled Cubed Beef Tenderloin and you can finish off with deserts of Roasted Peaches with Caramelized Bananas. The tequila bar offers more than 120 tequilas with decadent cocktails such as the Cucumber-Lavender Mojito. Dress accordingly for this “to see and be seen” crowd.

Selections may include rabbit, quail, oxtail stew and other Spanish delicacies, as well as a variety of all-vegetable dishes. The all-Spanish wine list here earned the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Home-made desserts are another specialty you won't want to miss. Reservations are not accepted, so plan to stay a while for an excellent meal that is worth the wait.
Narrow hallways resembling a bat cave lead to one of Dallas's hippest and most decadent spots: The Candleroom. This gorgeous nightclub, complete with comfy banquettes, fireplaces and sparkling chandeliers, is known for its excellent martinis and live music. Many say their Godiva Martini is sent from heaven. Not only that but The Candle Room is great for any occasion. Go there after work, go dancing on the weekend or snuggle up to a loved one near the fire place during the mid-week. Decadent attire is a must, though and visitors are advised to call and inquire about the guest list because the club is largely members only.
A nice retreat after a busy day, Suede Bar & Grill is an integral part of the Dallas Nightlife circuit. Be it for local bands performing or retro nights, this place is swarming with a hep crowd at any given day. Grab a beer and some light grub and enjoy your night away with friends. Although this place remains a general favorite among the locals, its patio area is the main crowd-puller. An open-air rooftop area is where drinks are served. If you are not of the 'dancing' types, then you can always use a booth to sit and watch others shake a leg or two. Whatever be your reason to visit, this place makes sure you return for more.
Old Crow is a dive turned popular college hangout with a variety of live music venues. From modern street art on the walls down to the wood floor, you'll find a little bit of everything here.

Acts include local rockabilly bands and DJs that play anything from psychedelic tunes to top alternative hits. The Old Crow is so popular that it's sometimes hard to find a place to stand, much less sit. You'll find a large number of Crow regulars sitting around the bar until the college kids run them off during the later hours.

Lakewood Landing is more upscale than they care to admit. Everyone in town knows the babe behind the bar. Lucille, working on her 31st year at the Landing, is more legendary than the mermaid mural on the side of the building. Tables and a few booths provide a place to munch on burgers or kick back a beer or two. A jukebox with hits from the 1970s to the 1990s provides entertainment when live events aren't scheduled. If billiards is your hobby, you're sure to find a game here. Typical bar menu with burgers, nachos and fried everything. The telltale sign that this is not any old hole-in-the-wall is the veggie burger on the menu. The chicken-fried steak is wonderful for those not counting calories.
