But where do you get started in this trendy and exciting party of town? We’ve put together 7 nightclubs and restaurants in Oak Lawn you must visit. And who knows, you may soon become a regular to one or more of these great spots!
1. The Grapevine Bar
Winner of D Magazine’s Reader’s Choice for Best Gay Bar for five years in a row (2011 to 2015), this is the perfect spot to begin (or extend) your exploration of Oak Lawn. This dive bar offers plenty of room both indoors and out, inexpensive but strong drinks, and even features a unique basketball hoop. While it is perhaps not the best option for a classy evening out, it is definitely a good choice if you’re looking for a fun evening with plenty of interesting people.
2. The Mansion Bar
This is the perfect cocktail bar for after dinner conversation and dessert. Enjoy live music Friday and Saturday nights, but don’t rule this spot out for happy hour from 3pm to 6pm. The Mansion Bar is located inside the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek Hotel, and while it’s a bit more on the pricey end, it offers a stylish spot for an evening out.
3. The Library Bar
Located inside the Warwick Hotel, this unique, historic lounge has a classy, throwback vibe. The perfect spot for a low-key evening, the Library is a smaller venue, perfect for after dinner drinks and a night of live jazz music. Live entertainment is provided nightly Monday through Saturday. Enjoy delicious cocktails, wonderful music, and a delightful evening of people watching.
4. The Rose Room Theatre & Lounge
Looking for a wonderful show and a good time with dancing and drinks? The Rose Room Theatre and Lounge offers it all. This venue provides a wide range of glamorous and hilarious drag shows that range from the amateur to the more experienced performers. While this venue will have you up late (the show doesn’t start until 11pm), you won’t regret the loss of sleep! Be sure to check the events calendar and catch your favorite performers!
5. Maple and Motor
Okay, we’ve touched on some great bars and nightclubs, but now for the restaurants in Oak Lawn. Maple and Motor truly “celebrates low class cool.” It is a charming, hole in the wall location that provides delicious American food, primarily hamburgers and sides. If you’re craving a juicy burger, this is the spot for you. It may not look like much from the outside, but this diner offers a meal you won’t soon forget.
6. Top Knot
Take a trip upstairs and enjoy this unique Asian Fusion restaurant. If you love kimchi, crudo, and brunch, you’ll love Top Knot! This unique spot has a daily happy hour from 5pm to 6:30pm that offers $5 drinks and plates. And the patio offers a beautiful spot to enjoy the outdoors while eating your unique fusion meal.
7. Meddlesome Moth
A full bar that also serves delicious dishes, the Meddlesome Moth offers a unique selection of beers and meals. But more than that, this delightful bar and restaurant provides a unique ambiance by featuring beautiful stained glass windows throughout and a spacious outdoor patio. Hang out at the bar, eat brunch on the patio, or enjoy a full sit down meal under the stained glass. No matter what your in the mood for, Meddlesome Moth delivers!
