CAFe MADRID

LOON
3531 McKinney Avenue
214.559.3059
Local place that's been serving some of the stiffest drinks in town for quite some time. Very crowded. Less formal than other nearby options. Recently expanded to give patrons a bit more elbow room. Twenties crowd, mostly from the surrounding area. Understaffed, so order your drinks two at a time, or get a waitress. Overall, a great place if you can deal with the crowd.

Consider OTB if you want Margaritas and beer.

PRIMO'S
3309 McKinney Avenue
214.220.0510
Another extremely trendy locale. All age ranges frequent this joint, which serves as a great bar and Mexican food restaurant. Patio is great. Good looking clientele provides for good people watching. Next door to the Quarter, so makes a nice 1-2 punch.

QUARTER
