The Truck Yard
Best Place for a Date:
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is hard to beat when you're looking for a laidback place to take a date. Spend the day strolling through the gardens, and then visit the DeGolyer House on the grounds for lunch.
Best Place to Catch a Show:
Good Records is one of the best record stores in the city and a great place to visit when you want to catch a show. The store often hosts in-store performances from bands that are performing at the Granada Theater down the road.
Best Place for Casual Dining:
The Truck Yard offers a relaxing outdoor setting with dozens of food trucks lined up to offer everything from craft beer and cocktails to cheesesteaks and tacos. The Truck Yard follows in the Texas tradition of beer gardens with live music.
Best Place for Dancing:
The Beauty Bar offers something you won't find at many nightclubs: It's perhaps the only place in the city where you can get a manicure and a martini then dance the night away.
