Concrete Cowboy

Dallas

From the dude behind Teddy's Room -- who was clearly not at all influenced by the 1996 Meryl Streep drama Marvin's Room -- this "party bar for grownups" sets the mood with a trio of garage doors, all-brick walls accented by 30yr-old barnwood, and a huge vintage "Giddy Up" sign hovering over couches where you can watch games on twin 113-inch screens. Music alternates between classic rock/country and top 40, shots are plentiful and sometimes wacky, and they periodically hold edible events like Saturday pork roasts.
