Don't come here to eat unless you're already drunk. But if you're sober, this is a pretty good place to get the job done. There's always a solid crowd here and most of them crowd the outdoor patio while they sip on beers and pull on cigarettes.

Ships Lounge
If you need a cheap cold beer, or you've got a cheap scotch that needs drinking come to Ships. For $3 you can buy an ice-cold Budweiser or a set up of ice and soda to mix with your own liquor to your liver's content. Too expensive? Fine, you cheap bastard, order a PBR draft. They're only two bucks, but you better bring cash. Does it look like that register takes credit cards?

The best patio in Dallas coupled with a great beer selection and interesting decor makes the Foundry an obvious addition to the list. If the weather is good, find yourself a picnic table and flag down a waitress. Relax. You'll be here a while.

The fact that Strangeways isn't on this list is simultaneously shitarded and a bit of a relief.

I'm glad you didn't mention my favorite. It's already a hell of a time getting a seat, even on weeknights and especially during Happy Hour.

Good list, still.

@Ashley Richardson Not anymore. The place has changed a lot over the past few months

@monstruss Strangeways isn't on the list because the service is so slow. Each of the bars here have attentive fast bartenders. They make me feel like I'm taken care of.

That said, I love te space at Strangeways though. It's a cool bar

@Gipson I wonder what I missed. I promise not to tell if you let me know.

@scott.reitz Best bars for drinking, yet you don't want to wait in line like everyone else. Basically, it's a list of bars that make you feel like you're special.

@scott.reitz I see your point in the service being a little slower. Personally I don't really mind so much because I know it's just the 4 or 5 folks covering the whole place, and the quality of both the service and the drinks makes up for it.

@looptwelve @scott.reitz this couldn't be further front the truth. Some of these bars know who I am when I patronize. Some do not. I hate when I get special treatment, but I love when I see bartenders hustling to make everyone feel like a special customer
