The Gingerman Dallas Reviews
Great Bar in the Uptown Area of Dallas Aug 18, 2008
Having spent 10+ years living in Dallas, mostly in the downtown area, I'd easily consider the Gingerman my favorite bar. It's in the Uptown area, which is just north of downtown Dallas. It's surrounded by a number of other bars and restaurants so if it doesn't tickle your fancy you'll have plenty of other options. The service is always fantastic and unlike a lot of other bars in the area they somehow manage to keep the same staff, which is to say its fairly simple to get to know them. This place hits its peak around Happy Hour and the reason I like it so much is that its just a straight up bar, and not like most of the other pretentious bars/clubs in Dallas. It tends to get a little slower around 9-10 as most people hit the newer places in the Uptown Area.
The Beer selection is excellent as they have an entire wall of brews on tap, but the menu is very average and only contains a few basic offerings. Also, they only serve beer so head elsewhere if you're looking for a good mixed drink.
Please be prepared to deal with all of the pretentiousness that comes with being in Dallas, but there's just no way to avoid it no matter where you're staying. The downtown area is by far the worst, but with that said the Gingerman will always be one of my favorite bars anywhere here in the States.
Hope this helps.
