Casual atmosphere and stiff drinks keep the crowds coming to this comfortable Uptown bar on McKinney.. 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.
