Truth & Alibi is a great way to end the night at Deep Ellum. Hidden behind a faux candy store, Truth & Alibi is a fun way to dance and enjoy the music at a uniquely designed bar. The service is good as well to...More

A great speakeasy who's secret password to get in is easily accessible on their Facebook site. Typical dark & loud nightclub atmosphere with outstanding cocktails. The only reason I didn't go 5 stars is because the drinks are very small and very expensive, but delicious....More

I got turned away from entry because I didn't have a reservation. Then I watched lady after lady stream in while giving the bouncer (James) kisses on the cheek, face touches, hugs, etc. The bouncer then said I couldn't get in (as a single guy)...More

This is a nice little speakeasy in Dallas that has a store front as a candy shop. Be sure to check their Facebook page weekly for the correct password to enter. The drinks are fun and unusual mixtures - look over the backlit menu easily...More

This place was really cool. Great idea for a bar, taking a chapter from history. This place looks like a small candy store but hidden in the back is neat speakeasy bar. Worth a visit, but you need a password.
