What Makes The Nodding Donkey the Best Sports Bar in Dallas, Texas?

A few years ago D Magazine dubbed The Nodding Donkey the best sports bar in Dallas and it’s a reputation we’ve been striving to live up to ever since! We know you have options when it comes to where you watch the game, and we’re thrilled you choose to come hang out with us at The Donkey. 

 

For those of you who haven’t caught a game or joined us for happy hour at The Nodding Donkey, here are just a few reasons why we’re the best sports bar in Dallas, Texas:

 

20 Massive TVs

Want to watch the game? Want to watch a game others aren’t watching? With 20 huge TVs we make sure there isn’t a bad seat in the house to catch all the action. And if you’re interested in watching a game that others aren’t watching, just let our staff know. We’ll get it going on one of our big screens, with options available for both indoor and outdoor viewing. 

 

The Best Parlor Games

 

Life-Sized Jenga. Cornhole. Giant Connect 4. These are just a few of the parlor games you can find here at The Nodding Donkey. We want to create an environment that is fun for all, so take in the indoor/outdoor space and play a few games during halftime or commercial breaks. Not really into the game but along for the fun? Then our parlor games help pass the time (craft beer and cocktails help too).

Cooled Patio – All the Way Around

 

One thing our guests truly love about The Nodding Donkey is the wrap around patio, offering an indoor/outdoor vibe that’s just perfect for a cool Spring evening. And for those Summer evenings when it’s a balmy 100 degrees in North Texas….The Nodding Donkey has misters to cool you right off! 

 

Best Bar Food in Dallas, Texas

 

Bar food is hardly a thing here at The Nodding Donkey because ours far suprasses the typical offerings. Sure, we might offer appetizers such as fried pickles and chicken strips, but the also come with a difference you can taste. Hand-breaded, fresh never frozen, scratch kitchen cooking….these are the types of things that set our menu apart and make our food the best bar food in Dallas.

Product Spotlight: Crooked Fox Bourbon Whiskey

As the best sports bar in Uptown Dallas, we’ve got an eye out for the best whiskies, tequilas, vodkas, wine, and craft beers around. One of our new favorites is the Crooked Fox Bourbon Whiskey, founded right here in North Texas.

 

About Crooked Fox Bourbon Whiskey

What began as a master’s thesis project, turned into budding business venture and a decision to make the best bourbon whiskey around.

 

We’ve come to love Crooked Fox for its smooth blend of whiskies, creating a balance and unique flavor. Crooked Fox blends are distilled and aged in America’s finest whiskey regions – Tennessee and Kentucky. What makes them unique is that each batch matures in wooden casks, and after that process is complete, each batch is carefully taste tested and blended based on the taste profile. The result: delicious, smooth flavors within each bottle, with hints of oak, vanilla, nutmeg, smoked maple, malted barley, and rye seeping through in each bottle. 

 

This distinct approach to bourbon whiskey has made Crooked Fox an award-winning brand, winning Gold and Silver medals the last 2 years in various competitions including the North American Bourbon Whiskey Competition, MicroLiquor Spirits Awards, and the International Wine & Spirits Competition, among others.
