Knox Street Pub & Grill is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a big party on Feb. 28 that will allow its loyal clientele to relive memories of the past decade as well as welcoming new people to the popular Dallas spot.
My buddies and I have frequented the Knox Street Pub over the years because of its laid-back atmosphere and its stellar bar food including char-grilled chicken sandwiches and hand-tossed New York-style pizzas. The fact that there are 16 flatscreen TVs basically guarantees that whatever game we are wanting to catch will be on, but it is not really a sports bar as evidenced by the DJ every Friday and Saturday night.
While it’s actually located on McKinney Ave. just south of Knox, this “neighborhood watering hole” in the Knox/Henderson district feels like another world from the cosmopolitan Uptown area down the road. I certainly enjoy going out in Uptown and seeing the beautiful people of Dallas on display, but it is nice to know there is a cool place void of pretension to hang out with a demographic that can range anywhere from ages 25-60.
“We are quite frankly, a bar without an identity,” said owner Ryan Ferguson.”We have a full bar with commercial, local and craft beers and a great spirits and boutique wine collection. Most people know us as the go-to late-night weekend establishment, but there is must more to experience at Knox Street than that.”
The party is 9 p.m.-2 a.m. on Feb. 28, with DJ Humble beginning at 10 p.m. For further details, call 214-528-5100.
