March Madness is Coming to The Nodding Donkey Uptown!

Basketball season is in full swing, and we can’t wait to start March Madness this coming Sunday, March 13. The final selections will be made, and then it’s non-stop college basketball until April!


Who’s going to take it all? Kansas Jayhawks? How far will our favorite Texas teams go? There is only way to find out… watch with your friends at The Nodding Donkey!


There’s a reason The Nodding Donkey has been voted D Magazine’s Reader’s Choice for Best Sports Bar in Dallas. When the game is on, you know you can count on The Nodding Donkey to hae the best atmosphere, best seats, best food, and best drink specials.


Unrivaled Atmosphere


We can take little credit for this one. Our loyal patrons light it up on game night and the place is electric. Many love the indoor/outdoor, casual feel of The Nodding Donkey. And when the weather is this nice in Texas, you can bet we’ve got the patio wide open and a breeze flowing. It’s the simple things.


Best Seats


You didn’t just come to hear the game, you came to watch the game! Don’t fret. The Nodding Donkey has 17+ big screens spread throughout the Dallas restaurant and bar, giving you plenty of opportunities to see the game you came to watch. And if you’re not really into the game….just head to the bar for a daily drink special and it will suddenly get a little bit more exciting.


Great Bar Food


We hate to even use the term “bar food” because The Nodding Donkey’s food is so much better than that! Our kitchen is run by a chef who knows a thing or two about great cuisine, whipping up fresh, scratch kitchen dishes daily. Even our typical Dallas appetizers are just a step above the rest – prepared with unique ingredients and fresh flavors.


Daily Drink Specials


When you go to a bar, you want to know what the drink specials are. And we’re here to tell ya – we’ve got ‘em! There are always the mainstays – crown & down Mondays, half-priced wine Tuesdays, etc. – but on March Madness game nights we’ll have a few extras to sweeten the deal.


Plan to camp out at The Nodding Donkey for the entire month of March for March Madness! See you then!
