We’re going to assume you said yes.
That way it’s less awkward when we tell you about Deep Ellum’s newest watering hole.
It’s called Off the Record, and it’s a comfortable, brick-walled ode to draft beers and vinyl records that’s just opened next door to Dada. (See it here.)
So this is on Elm Street. Which... yes, looks like a disaster zone these days. But step over those construction cones. Bypass a bulldozer or two and walk inside. Because it’s worth it. Not just because it’s a relaxed place to sip on 24 drafts while listening to good music, but because... no, wait, that’s exactly why.
If you’re meeting a friend after work, do so at the concrete bar or at one of those wooden tables along the wall. Either spot’s a fine place to knock back an Odell 90 Shilling as the sun goes down and your day improves.
And somewhere between beers two and three, walk toward those shelves in the back to thumb through nearly 2,000 records from the likes of Daft Punk and Morrissey.
Great hair, that guy.
