Christmas Hours

Enjoy Christmas Eve with your family, as we’ll be closed all day, but after all the fun is winding down, meet up with a few friends – or bring the whole family – to The Donkey! We will be opening at 5pm on Christmas Day AND we will be serving half price pizza all night long! With choices galore, we can’t think of a better way to finish off your Christmas Day.

New Year’s Eve

The Donkey is open and ready to party! Come out for drink specials and FUN!

New Year’s Day Brunch

After you’ve watched the ball drop and celebrated the New Year, start 2015 off right with brunch at The Nodding Donkey! From 11am – 3pm, you can enjoy the best brunch in town with waffles, eggs any way you want them, bacon, and more.

Join Us If You Dare!

Halloween night is one week away, and The Nodding Donkey Greenville has one heck of a party planned! 

We are pulling out all the stops to make this year’s Halloween party the best yet! We’ll have live music, drink specials, and even a Halloween costume contest.

Grab a group of friends and join us for the party. One requirement though – you must be donning your best Halloween costume!

The best costume will take home some serious cash prizes, so dress to impress! In order to get those creative juices flowing, we wanted to give you a list of costume ideas to avoid, because hey, they’ve been done:

·        Hazmat Suit Guy – Yeah. We know. Ebola’s in Dallas. Trust us and leave this one at home, because this one’s sure to be over-done and a little too close to home for some.

·        Any Frozen Character – Unless you sing “Let It Go” like Idina Menzel, let this one go. As this was only the most popular movie in America for the last year, you'll likely see many a Princess Anna and Elsa – and many will be elementary age.

·        Joan Rivers or Robin Williams – While these two thrived on originality, you’re unlikely to get creativity points this year by putting on a Mrs. Doubtfire costume or a Joan wig. Plus, it just might be too soon.

So join us next Friday night – October 31 - at The Nodding Donkey Greenville for the biggest Halloween party on Greenville Ave! As the Best Sports Bar in Dallas, we’ve got tons of space inside and out on the patio for enjoying the party. And in addition to the regular Friday night drink specials – $3 wells and domestic drafts during happy hour – we’ll be serving up a whole bunch of Halloween drink specials.

 It will be an event you won’t want to miss!
