Popular with a diverse crowd with a tinge of leather
You'll find a lot of different types at the Hidden Door, but really, it's a bear bar and the scene is dominated by friendly, ultra-masculine men.

      Did I miss something
      (cant change the headline) Things have changed a bit since my 1st review. It was a nice bear crowd 30s and up and I love the patio area, it's one of the best in Dallas I think. It's definitely more inviting than the Dallas Eagle although the establishment isnt as nice. The bartenders are friendly but the drinks are always mixed poorly. Cash only is my only complaint here. I've never had trouble parking and security is always present at the door.

      My favorite place to hang when I visit Dallas. Laid back, down to earth people. Mostly a Levis sort of crowd. A little dark and a few guys might think it's a little seedy, but it adds up to great vibe.

      This is our favorite Dallas watering hole. Anything goes! Robin and Brian are the best bartenders as they tend to remember their clientele's preferred drinks. Music is provided by a jukebox so download the TouchTunes app to play your favorite drinking songs. Very laidback atmosphere with no attitude. Cash only but they do have an ATM on site. Pool tables and a dart game complement the dive bar setup. Always fun on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons for the beer bust. I only wish they had a dance floor. Other than that, I highly recommend it to travelers who just want to relax and get to know the locals.

      nice spacious bar for real men
      I love this bar! It's spacious with adequate parking! The men are more manly and mature looking and acting in here- not the place for twink a for sure. The outdoor deck is big with a partially covered awning. Love this place and will definitely be back!

      The local hangout for everyone.......
      I love the laid back atmosphere, people speak to each other without that "are you trying to pick me up" look. Most of the crowd is older and so the games are the same but more fun because the impressing someone part isn't a big factor. So if you're being "hard to get" it isn't an insult or an attitude it's all in the game....................and the bartenders are the best!

      Hidden Door
      I love the hidden door, Its a freindly place to meet peolpe. remiders me like the tv show cheers. The beers good and cheap place to star and get drunk. People are nice. the only thing i dont like is the lil short guy keeny. You either be on his good side or he well find any reason throw you out of the bar. The bar has reputation of throwing people out for no reason. so watch for that folks!!!

      Baseball
      Nice place to go to catch a baseball game mid afternoon when Rangers are playing on the west coast and have a 2PM game time. The back bar is not crowded and you can get the game on the bigscreen and actually hear it as well.

      great bar ! very friendly !
      Nice and friendly staff and customers, Robin is the best bartender i had in all my US trips, everybody seems to know each other, but they talk to you and introduce to there friends, unfortunatly i discovered this bar just 2 days before leaving dallas. If you don't have a car, and come here with a cab, be carefull the taxi driver know the place, the adress is a little bit confusing. I'll definitly coming back again.

      Quite Possibly the Best Bar in Texas
      This bar is great on busy nights like Friday and Saturday, not to mention Sunday afternoons when the back patio is jammed pack with hot shirtless men soaking up the sun and beer. Pool table area is great when the locals are playing - bartenders and customers are the friendliest around.

      Sunday Beer Bust!
      I've only been to the Hidden Door on Sunday for their 50 cent beer bust, but it's crowded and friendly. Huge patio out back!

      Sunday Funday Starts Here
      This place gets PACKED on their oversized patio on Sunday afternoons, with good reason as well! With friendly people, a diverse crowd and 50 cent beers there really isn't much more you could ask for.
