2018 Top 25 Dallas Nightclubs & Bars

Anyone who lives in Dallas knows that we’re a bunch of alcoholics. According to data provided by the Texas Comptroller, we spent over $800M on beer, wine and mixed beverages at hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and bars.

Which of these establishments top the list for liquor sales? For the purposes of this list, I excluded stadiums, convention centers, concert venues, hotels and some restaurants. The criteria I chose for picking restaurants was “the restaurant is open until 2 am. on Saturday”. With that criteria, Moxie’s makes the cut but Pappadeaux does not. I looked for nightlife establishments
