1. Tradewinds Social Club 2843 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75211 (Oak Cliff)

A 42-year-old, near-windowless private club overflowing with real-deal dive kitsch, Tradewinds is the latest project by the man behind State Bar/Xpo Lounge/Double Wide/Lee Harvey's, a regular customer who, after hearing that the aging owner was dumping the place, did a deal in 15 minutes and in two weeks' time had the bar's keys and all its precious inventory: racked-vinyl trim, time-abused shuffleboard table/dart boards/jukebox, and a staggering collection of tropical fish figurines, just now surfacing from under a quarter inch of dust.
