Best Bar of the 00’s
Opened in the hard door era following the success of Sense, it both outdrew and outlasted its sibling. The ownership changed, but that’s about it. Candleroom still has the same bartending crew, a similar plush design and stellar DJs. And if you want to get a sense of the decade, it is still the place to go.
Best in DFW
The Knox-Henderson linchpin is the only boom-boom room to crack this top 10. Its virtues: DJs who don’t program down to their audience, a narrow rectangular space that creates a sense of moment whether it’s packed or thinly populated, buttery lighting and recently freshened décor.
Best Trendy Bar
The owners and management make everyone feel VIP. Always a great crowd. Some of us have been patrons for YEARS. When bars & clubs come and go, it’s nice to know this place is still around.
The Dallas Morning News :
“On the seven deadly sins scale, Candleroom rates an of-the-moment six of seven (pride, envy, sloth, lust, greed, wrath). Absent: gluttony.”
AOL Cityguide: City’s Best :
“one of the most handsome drinking destinations in Dallas”
Dallas’ Premier Progressive Lounge “Lighting up Dallas for over 13 yrs”
