These days the Dallas area is the destination for historians and scholars in Spanish art from all over the world. Beginning this month they will pour into town to view and study the collection of El Greco paintings assembled at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, and the paintings of 17th-century Spanish painter Jusepe de Ribera, at Fort Worth’s Kimbell Art Museum. And on December 6, paintings and prints by the 18th-century master Francisco Goya go on exhibit at the Meadows Museum and the Meadows Gallery at SMU.
Of the three artists, Ribera is probably the least well-known. His paintings of martyrs and saints are intensely spiritual and strikingly physical, with every wrinkle, every fingernail exactly rendered in thick paint. Altogether, Ribera is considered one of the masters of the Neopolitan Baroque.
But more than any other 18th-century artist, Goya foreshadowed the modern temperament – in his dark, grim paintings of the insane, in his curiously ambivalent psychological portraits and most especially in his famous prints depicting acts of madness and of war. Yet Goya also was charming in his painting, as his cartoons for tapestries suggest.
Admission to Ribera and Goya is free. Kimbell Art Museum, 1101 Will Rogers Road West, Fort Worth. Tue-Sat 10-5, Sun 1-5. (817) 332-8451. Meadows Museum, SMU campus. Mon-Sat 10-5, Sun 1-5. 692-2727.

He was born in Italy and reared in Brooklyn. He was 26 before he ever set foot in Spain. But the first time he danced in Seville, the Spanish gypsies claimed him as one of their own. Eventually, the man who first saw Spanish dance as an Italian in Brooklyn came to personify the culture of his adopted country. Today, to think of Spain and its passionate flamenco dance and music, is to think of Jose Greco.
Greco, who was knighted by the Spanish government in 1962, has been an international star since he first began touring in 1951. In addition to annual worldwide performances with his touring company, he has appeared in motion pictures, in dramatic productions, with symphony orchestras and in opera (including Fort Worth Opera’s Carmen last spring). This month, he returns to Dallas under the auspices of the Dallas Classic Guitar Society.
The Greco presentation marks a departure not only for the society, which generally stays with a purely concert format, but for Greco as well, who has agreed to introduce interludes of guitar solo music on the program.
Dec 13 at 8:15 p.m. at McFarlin Auditorium, SMU campus. Tickets $14-$4.50. 265-0789 or 343-3709.

In good times and bad, the plucky Stage #1 holds fast to its original purposes. To wit: “to present professional theater committed to the production of new and recent plays, with an emphasis on American scripts.”
Stage # 1’s current show is The Diviners by Jim Leonard Jr. In a fluid, cinematic flow of overlapping vignettes, the author and the players use speech, song and mime, as well as imaginative set and light designs, to conjure up the life of a southern Indiana farming community circa 1930. The plot centers on a boy who can divine water with a dowsing rod and how this strange, supernatural gift shapes the lives of everyone around him.
In a season when loss of nerve has been epidemic among theater managers, resulting in tepid play selections, it’s good to know that at least one new theater is sticking to its artistic guns. The Diviners, through December 19 at Stage #1, Greenville Avenue Theatre, 2914 Greenville. Wed-Fri at 8:15 p.m., Sat at 5:30&9 p.m., Sun at 7 p.m. Tickets $10 Fri & Sat; $8.50 Wed, Thur & Sun. 760-9542.
Abernathy’s. When it opened four years ago, Abernathys was the first of the good basic fern bars in Fort Worth. Consistently good burgers, nachos and salads, as well as just-right drinks keep the TCU and young business crowds satisfied. (2859 W Berry, Fort Worth. (817) 923-0941. Mon-Thur 11 am-mid-night. Fri & Sat 11 am-2 am. MC. V.)
Andrew’s. If you’re looking for imaginative drinks and a charming atmosphere, Andrew’s is the place for you. The decor is Scottish pub with lots of brick, and the service is efficient. The drink menu is larger than the food menu (great lor liquid diets), with specialties ranging from hot coffee drinks to tutti-frutti tropical knockouts. (3301 McKinney 521-6535. Daily 11:15 am-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 2-7 pm, daily 11 pm-2 am. All credit cards.)
Arthur’s. Quiet jazz, intimate lighting and overstuffed sofas make Arthurs the perfect bar for a tete-a-tete or an after-work get-together. The drinks are good and strong, and the service is unobtrusive. (8350 N Central Expwy. 361-8833 Mon-Fri 11:30 am-2 am, Sat 6 pm-2 am, Sun 6 pm-midnight. All credit cards.)
Bagatelle. If you’re tired of your rowdy friends and would like to slip into a plush, dark booth for a smooth drink and a little intimate conversation, this is the perfect place. What you’ll find at Bagatelle is good food and great jazz Karen Edwards sings and plays the piano Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday nights; the Paul Guerrero Jazz Quartet performs Thursday. Friday and Saturday nights (4925 Greenville. 692-8225. Mon-Wed 11:30 am-midnight. Thur till 1 am, Fri & Sat till 2 am: Sun brunch 10:30-2. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4:30-7. All credit cards.)
Balboa Café. This relaxing, dark fern bar offers good drinks, expeditious service and moderate crowds The menu consists of fairly filling sandwiches and hamburgers, smooth guacamole and chips and salads-all reasonably priced. The Greenville Avenue location includes a patio for balmy nights and only a livelier and is louder, a pub atmosphere is prevalent with a big screen TV and dart tourneys lour times a week (3604 Oak Lawn. 521-1068. 7015 Greenville. 369-7027. Daily 11 am-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. MC, V, AE.)
Bar Tejas. The look here is weathered adobe hacienda and you almost expect to see gunslingers sidle up to the bar. especially when the wildly eclectic jukebox is spinning Tex Ritter’s theme from High Noon. But there’s also Gershwin, Billie Holliday and a host of other musical rarities seldom found outside the Stoneleigh P. Tejas makes a superb three-napkin burger on a wheat bun and a huge production of nachos that might be called Super Surface Nachos You’ll want to lay on the guacamole and sour cream, which come in generous portions. (2100 Greenville. 828-2131. Daily 3 pm-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 3-7. AE.)
Belle Starr. Not quite in the same league as Diamond Jim’s. Belle Starr has become a real haven for semi-urban, blue-collar cowboys and cowgirls who just love to two-step and polka (this place is equipped with a large dance floor). (7724 N Central near Southwestern. 750-4787. Mon-Sat 7 pm-2 am. Sun 4 pm-2 am. All credit cards.)
Biff’s. Not many local eating and drinking establishments offer both a beautiful view and excellent food. Look out Biff’s window through the lush greenery of Old Vickery park; with the sunlight filtering through the trees, even the snarled traffic on Greenville somehow seems peaceful The combination nachos here are a civic treasure. The drinks are average. (7402 Greenville. 696-1952. Daily 11 am-2 am Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. AE, MC. V.)
Billy Bob’s Texas. It was only a matter of time before someone built a c/w nightclub bigger than Gilley’s; it’s perfectly logical that it was built in Fort Worth. Billy Bob’s has 42 bar stations, six shops, two restaurants, a seating capacity of 6,000. real cow-boys riding real bulls in a stockyard arena, and some of the biggest names in country music. (2520 N Commerce, Fort Worth. (817) 625-6491. Mon-Sat 10 am-2 am; Sun 4 pm-midnight. Happy hour daily 4-8 pm. V, MC, AE.)
Café Dallas. If you’re out to pick up someone and you can’t do it here, there must be something wrong. This place is literally overflowing with eager young (well, maybe not quite so young) swingles in all shapes and sizes. Anything is “in” here; as long as you act like you belong, you will. And Cafe Dallas has one of the best sound systems in Dallas. So, if you like to dance (anything from disco to new wave to rock) and don’t mind a few indecent proposals, Cafe Dallas is for you. (5500 Greenville. 9870066. /Won-Thur 3 pm-2 am, Fri till 3 am, Sat 8 pm-3 am. Sun 8 pm-2 am. AE. MC, V.)
Cardinal Puff’s. Mostly we love the atmosphere here-open rooms filled with gentle breezes, plants, garden furniture and an occasional wandering cat. It’s a good place for conversation and is relaxing, but the drinks (our margaritas tasted like 7-Eleven Slurpees) could stand some revamping. (4615 Greenville. 369-1969. Mon-Sat 11:30 am-2 am. Sun noon-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 11:30-7. MC, AE, DC, V.)
Chelsea Corner. Almost hidden at the intersection of Monticello and McKinney, Chelsea Corner offers the “fun” food and drinks of upper Greenville Avenue in a casual atmosphere more akin to lower Greenville Avenue-without being either. The well drinks are potent and reasonably priced, and the special drinks (like the Frozen Tumbleweed and the Scarlet Fever) are luscious. (4830 McKinney. 522-3501. Mon-Fri 11:30am-2am, Sat & Sun noon-2 am. Sun brunch noon-3. All credit cards.)
Comedy Comer. This isn’t such a bad place to catch semi-big-name comedy acts-if you don’t mind a lot of smoke, a $5 cover, a two-drink minimum and a waitress who automatically assumes that your change is her tip. Rows of comedians in their own rights fill the audience while comedy acts of varying quality take the stage for short sets of stand-up humor. (8202 Park Lane. 361-7461. Sets begin Wed & Thur at 8:30 pm; Fri & Sat 8:30 & 10:30. Tue audition night 8:30. Closed Sun. AE, MC, V.)
Confetti. One man’s clutter is another man’s eclectic, and this is possibly the most eclectic bar in Dallas. Dangling bicycles, zigzag neon and poster-plastered walls expose a theme bar that couldn’t decide upon a theme. But if you can dig your way through the crowd, you’ll discover two flashy dance floors, several well-manned bars-maybe even Mr. or Ms. Right. Music varies here from Fifties doo-wa to Eighties do-whatever. Be prepared for a long line out the door on Friday and Saturday nights. (5201 Matilda oft Lovers Lane. 369-6969. Mon-Thur 4:30 pm-2 am, Fri 4:30 pm-4 am. Sat 7 pm-4 am, Sun 7 pm-2 am. Weekend cover $2. All credit cards.)
Diamond Jim’s. What a great place to get picked up! It’s not too pretentious, it’s not overdone and it has the essential c/w elements to offer its patrons: pseudo-Western surroundings, lots of floor space to two-step or swing dance on and oodles of available singles. We especially like the windowsills that line one wall; they’re perfect perches for people-watching. (5601 Greenville. 691-2411. Mon-Fri 5 pm-2 am, Sat & Sun 7 pm-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 5-8 pm. MC. V, AE.)
East-Side. This place has all the new wave elements: black and white tile, gladiolas, avant-garde art on the walls. But somehow, East-Side seems passe. Even after savoring several of East-Side’s strong drinks, it’s difficult to loosen up and feel at ease here. Part of the problem seems to be that there is just too much space. Perhaps if the tables were closer together, patrons wouldn’t feel so isolated The drinks are good, the tried zucchini is top notch and the jukebox is truly eclectic. (7035 Green ville. 987- 0559. Mon-Fri 5 pm-2 am. Sat & Sun 6pm 2 am MC, V, CB, AE)
Eight-O. You’ll have a hard time just sitting and chatting here-sooner or later your feet will involun tarily tap themselves over to the compact dance floor for a workout to the tunes of the dynamic upbeat jukebox Your conversation will center on the colorful. wild art. the fashionable, younger crowd (and incongruously dressed preps) and the good drinks A hi-tech, artsy atmosphere has strong in fluence here The action continues until closing Food is available (The Quadrangle. 2800 Routh, suite 125. 741-0817. Mon-Sat 11:30 am-2 am, Sun ( pm-2 am with live music at night. Live jazz at lunch Wed-Sat. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7 MC, AE. V.)
Encore. Return to a simpler time, when neon and black and white tile and glass bricks represented “wild times.” and Frank Sinatra music was considered too dangerous for impressionable young girls. Encore is a Forties and Fifties echo, with a friendly, eclectic crowd, good Greek food and burgers, and live entertainment Wed-Sat This month Encore features the fabulous West Coast Connection. (3520 Oak Lawn. 526-9055 Mon & Tue 11:30 am-midnight, Wed-Fri 11 30 am-2 am, Sat 8 pm-2 am. AE, V, MC.)
élan. Some of the b.p. (beautiful people) may have left last year’s preferred watering hole for greener pastures, but elan is still not exactly deserted. There will always be those who care enough for exclusivity to buy it for a $350 membership fee. Happy hour gets you two drinks for the price of one. and perhaps the most generous free buffets in town (Mon-Fri 5 pm-8 pm) Be forewarned: There are two house wines, and you have to ask for the better one. Beau Rivage. by name. If you don’t have a membership, you can buy a 3-day guest pass for $25. (5111 Greenville. 692-9855. Mon-Fri 11 30 am-2 am, Sat 7 pm-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4:30-9. Sun brunch 11-2. All credit cards.)
Fender’s Bar and Grill. This Nortnwest Highway hot spot may remind you of some place you’ve been before-several places, in fact With its schlocky Hollywood posters, stained glass. Phillips 66 signs, recessed lighting and often forgetful service, Fender’s is Everyclub. grown lax with a success that’s due partly to location. However, you can escape the cloned interior to the wicker butterfly chairs in the window atrium, or lose yourself in the excellent jazz featured live nights a week. (2828 W Northwest Hwy. 350-4240. Mon-Thur 11 am-11 pm, Fri & Sat 11 till midnight, Sun 5:30 pm-11 pm. AE, MC. V.)
Four Seasons Ballroom. Big-band music for ball-room dancing A strict dress code is enforced- dresses for the ladies, and coats and ties for the gentlemen. Only setups, beer and soft drinks are served, except on Fridays, when food is available. Cover varies. Free dance lessons are offered (4930 Military Pkwy. 349-0390 or 381-9072. Wed 8:45 pm-12:15 am. Fri 9 pm-12:30 am & first Sat of each month 9 pm-1 am. No credit cards.)
Greenville Avenue Country Club. One step inside the door of this low-key, easygoing place, and the name country club takes on a new meaning. Drinks are served inside the “clubhouse” where the surroundings are warm and comfortable, or outside, around a cool, blue pool At this “country club ” though, the only big shots are the ones they’ll pour into your glass. (3619 Greenville. 826-5650. Mon-Sat 11 am-2 am. Sun noon 2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7 AE, MC. V.)
Greenville Bar & Grill. Dallas’ oldest bar-that’s what the owners claim-has alleviated the crowding somewhat with the opening of an ad|oining, quieter room. You may be more comfortable in the addition, especially it you want to be heard, but the real GB & G is still out in the boisterous main room. The drinks are straight-up and strong. The entertainment is eccentric and erratic (2821 Greenville. 823 5691. Mon-Sat 11:30 am-2 am, Sun noon-2 am Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. AE.)
Ground Zero. Sixties go-go gone new wave ga-ga “Dallas’ first nuclear bar” features live bands (nightly except Sunday), plenty of parquet and oh, yeah a dancing girl in a cage. (6844 Twin Hills, one block south of Comedy Corner. 3630167. Nightly 8 pm-2 am. Cover varies. MC, V, AE.)
Hippopotamus. Far from the bright lights of Greenville Avenue, tucked quietly in the beautifully renovated Bradford Hotel, Hippopotamus offers a dark, soothing atmosphere and a New York-style piano bar. The large picture window looks out on the shimmering Hyatt Regency and the occasional passing strollers who-by Hippopotamus’ standards-are moving too fast. (302 S Houston. 761-9090. Mon-Sat 11:30am -11:30 pm, Sun 4 pm-11:30pm. Pianist Mon-Fri 5-8. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. AE, MC, V, CB.)
The Hop. The Hop, a longtime Fort Worth institution, has pizza, spaghetti and all kinds of music, ranging from rock to jazz to the country-folk sound of songwriters B.W. Stevenson and Steve Fromholz The atmosphere is low-key and comfortable. (2905 W Berry, Fort Worth. (817) 923-7281. Mon-Sat 11 am-2 am, Sun 4 pm-1 am. Happy hour daily 2-7, all day Wed, Sun 4-7. All credit cards.)
Hot Klub. Dallas’ premiere punk showplace is, in a word, authentic. The Hot Klub features the best new wave bands in Texas as well as groups from all across the country. The atmosphere well, there is no atmosphere, except for the music and the crowd, which can be an unruly-dare we say rough? -bunch of serious punkers. (4350 Maple. 526-9432.)
Joe Miller’s. What a perfect afternoon bar for casual conversation-easy on the background music, soft on the lights and hard on the sledgehammer drinks that-along with the media crowd- have helped build Joe’s reputation. While you’re settling the world’s problems, check out Joe’s photo gallery of quasi-celebrities, the droll posters and other oddities. And watch that third drink. (3531 McKinney. 521-2261. Mon-Fri noon-2 am. AE. MC, V.)
Knox Street Pub. Over the years, this neighborhood bar has worn very, very well. It’s a slice of the Sixties, popular with Woodstock exes and the work-shirt and jeans set, but attracts other folks as well. Knox Street has its cadre of regulars, but there’s no cliquish spirit here. The menu is limited but the fare is reasonably priced and substantial; try the beef stew on some nippy afternoon. (3230 Knox 526-9476. Mon-Sat 11 am-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. Closed Sun. No credit cards.)
La Cave. Ah, a place for lovers. For discussion and good wine. This small, chic wine shop/bar has a walk-in wine cellar with an incredible collection of foreign and domestic wines. A few entrees are offered, but we suggest sticking to the cheese, and nut and fruit trays. (2926 N Henderson. 826-2190. Wine shop Mon-Sat 10 am-11:30 pm. Bistro Mon-Fri, lunch 11:30-2; dinner 5:30-11:30 pm. All credit cards. $$)
Lakewood Grill. The Lakewood area isn’t the peaceful homestead neighborhood that it used to be, particularly with the arrival of the Lakewood Grill. The decor is a combination of 21st-century slick (a mirrored bar with black and white additions) and Fifties funk (dinette set tables and chairs and red leatherette booths) The drinks here are more than substantial, they’re huge-and strong Its new menu features New Orleans Creole food Live entertainment Wed-Sun from 9:30 pm-1:30 am. (6332 La Vista. 823-5340. Daily 11:30 am-2 am. MC. V. AE.)
Lakewood Yacht Club. Every neighborhood has a hangout that has become a local institution. It’s the place to grab a cold beer and a good sandwich with friends. It’s the place to celebrate after a Softball victory or drown your sorrows after a defeat. Lakewood Yacht Club is such an institution-a laid-back, comfortable place where probably half the people there at any given time know each other, and the other half feel as it they do. The beer is always icy cold; the atmosphere is homey. (2009 Abrams. 824-1390. Mon-Fri 11 am-2 am, Sat & Sun noon-2 am. AE. MC. V.)
Les Saisons. A far cry from the usual fern racks of Greenville and the hi-tech of Oak Lawn. Les Saisons is a quiet haven for grown-ups. This is a place for smooth, elegant drinks and music that can be savored or left as backdrop conversation. The view from the bar isn’t as spectacular as that from the restaurant, but the surroundings are attractive and comfortable. (165 Turtle Creek Village. Oak Lawn at Blackburn. 528-1102. Daily 11 30 am-1:30 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-7. All credit cards.)
Longhom Ballroom. So what if it’s crowded and smoky, the cover’s too high, the tourists are too many. This is Bob Wills’ Longhom Ballroom, the place for kicker dancin’, beer drinkin’ and hell raisin’ You’ll fit in whether you can dance or not, and you might as well plan on coming home with bruised toenails (those rhinestone cowboys really can be oafs). No one should live in Dallas and not go to the Longhorn at least once. It’s a Texas tradition. (216 Corinth at Industrial. 4283128. Wed & Thur 7 pm-1 am. Fri & Sat 7 pm-2 am. Sun 5 pm-midnight. All credit cards.)
The Lounge. What an unlikely location for a bar’ This semi-art deco. semi-hi-tech retreat sits in the lobby of the Inwood Theater, separated from the movies and the moviegoers by high walls of water and its own outside door. But the Lounge is sans ceiling allowing patrons to share the view of the ocean motif mural that seems to float high above the theater lobby This is an attractive place to discuss films at great length. (5458 W Lovers Lane. 350-7834. Sun-Thur 5 pm-midnight. Fri & Sat 5 pm-2 am. AE.)
Mariano’s. If nachos and frozen margaritas are your passion, then Mariano’s is the place for you. The problem is that every other nacho/frozen mar-ganta lover in town will have beaten you there. The bar is small and crowded, and a mariachi band is usually blaring “El Rancho Grande” and other favorites to make your visit a truly Tex-Mex experience (5500 Greenville. 691 3888. Mon-Wed 11 am-midmght. Thur 11 am-1 am, Fri 11 am-2 am, Sat noon 2 am, Sun noon-10 pm. Happy hour daily 11-7. MC, V, AE.)
Nick’s Uptown. Behind the Venetian blinds at Nick’s Uptown, you’ll find an unlikely (but likable) melange of attempted hi-tech and Fifties drugstore decor The mostly 30ish crowd is drawn by solid acts like Al “TNT” Braggs and Vince Vance and the Valiants Nick’s has stiff prices for not-so-stiff drinks, but the service is cordial and the overall effect makes for a pleasant evening. (3606 Greenville. 827-4802. Daily 8 pm-2 am. AE, MC, V.)
Nostromo. Before venturing to Nostromo. it is advisable to have one or all of the following (1) the looks of a New York model. (2) the clothes of a New York designer. (3) the blase countenance of a New York socialite, (4) an entourage. If the above applies, welcome to Nostromo. If not. good luck getting in without a lengthy wait, especially during weekends Nostromo offers the jet set and the would-be jet set strong drinks, good service and a stark, well-lit place to spread their feathers.

The Palm Bar. This is a beautiful place for downtown workers to have an extended series of drinks. As hotel bars go. it is the most upscale in Dallas. The walk through the redecorated Adolphus is worth the excursion, and if you prefer open spaces, you can have a drink served in the lobby. (Adolphus Hotel, 1321 Commerce. 742 8200. Mon-Fri 11 am-8pm. All credit cards.)
Peabody’s. An oasis in the jungle that the Oak Lawn area has become. Peabody’s is a cozy bar. especially popular with the on-the-way-up Volvo-driving crowd. Lots of plants, overstuffed furniture and spirited drinks make tor an easy, neighborhood atmosphere And the nachos aren’t bad. either. (4216 Oak Lawn. 559-3160, Mon-Thur 11 am-1 am, Fri 11 am-2am, Sal 11:30am-2, Sun noon-midnight. Happy hour daily 5-8. AE. V. MC.)
Plat’s. It used to be so easy to get a table at Piaf’s Now there’s more of a crowd at this California-esque bar/restaurant, but so it goes with a good thing Fortunately, the crowd is varied and lively, as are the food and drink Best of all. Piaf’s remains casual, comfortable and fairly quiet (4527 Travis, 526 3730, Mon-Sat 11:30 am-2 am, Sun 11:30 am-midmght, Sun brunch 11:30-3. Happy hour daily 4-7 pm & 11 pm-closing. Kitchen open till 1:30 am Thur-Sat, till midnight Sun-Wed. All credit cards )
Poor David’s Pub. It’s easy to bypass this Sixties holdover on your way to somewhere else, but if you’re looking (or decent live music, that may be a mistake. Sure. Poor David’s is tiny and dark and has absolutely no stage. All the better to concentrate on the music, which, more often than not. is worth hearing. (2900 McKinney. 821-9891. Mon & Wed-Fri 4 pm-2 am. Sat 7 pm-2 am. Happy hour 4-8 pm weekdays. Closed Sun and Tue. No credit cards.)
Popsicle Toes. The name may be a bit odd (taken from a Michael Franks tune), but this place has great jazz-funk and an enjoyable, casual cosmopolitan clientele We’ve never been to a Dallas bar that is so comfortably integrated or felt so at home on a first visit just sitting and listening to the music Regulars such as Phyrework, Buster Brown and. on Mondays. Pore. Cooke and Neal. seem able to do it all-from jazz to rock to country (5627 Dyer. 368-9706. Tue-Sun 8 pm-2 am. Closed Mon. TGIF Fri 4-7 pm MC, V, AE )
The Quiet Man. This is the quintessential neighborhood bar, defined as one of those places you go to only if you’re meeting some buddies to quaff some brews and swap stories. A lone stranger here sticks out like a Ralph Lauren shirt Check out one of the city’s best beer bottle collections. When Knox was widened a tew years ago, the Quiet Man lost some of its beer garden out front, but that just means the regulars have to squeeze a bit closer together. (3120 Knox. 526-6180. Tue-Sat noon-2 am, Sun and Mon 4 pm-midnight. No credit cards.)
The Railhead. Quality entertainment with no cover charge is the drawing card here, a rarity that almost overcomes the club’s major irritations. You can’t run a cash tab during happy hour, the drinks are only so-so and the wait-persons sometimes wait too long before visiting your table. (6979 Twin Hills. 369-8700. Sun & Mon 5 pm-1 am, Tue Sat 5 pm-2 am. Happy hour Mon Fri 57 All credit cards.)
San Francisco Rose. When relaxing at SFR, it’s easy to feel as it you’re in someone’s living room, rather than in a bar on lower Greenville The seating consists of cozy groupings of easy chairs and over-stutfed Victorian sofas. If you’re with a group or alone and in the mood to meet someone, this arrangement lends itself to the cause If, however, you’re looking for a place for an intimate conversation for two, you may be hard pressed to find privacy. (3024 Greenville. 826-2020. Mon-Sat 11 am-2 am, Sun noon-2 am. Happy hour Mon-Fri 57 AE, MC, V. DC.)
6051 Club. Even if 6051 is hard to find, and the place looks like a beauty shop-turned-pizza-joint, it is the place to go for jazz. The service is good, the drinks are substantial and the music is generally outstanding. (6057 Forest Lane. 661-3393. Thur Sat 9 pm-2 am. MC, V.)
The Sock Hop. What’s new at the Sock Hop? Better to ask what’s old. since the theme here is Fifties/ early Sixties The Sock Hop has the front end of a ’57 Chevy, bebopping waitresses in cheerleader garb and other “Happy Days’ regalia. Best of all. the house band. Dash, ” plays some of the best nostalgia rock in town New management plans to import big-name acts like the Drifters, the Coasters and Tommy James. It’s a nice place to forget the Eighties. (2946 W Northwest Hwy. 352-6856. Tue-Sun 4 pm-2 am. Happy hour 4-7:30. No credit cards.)
St. Martin’s. St Martin’s has been among our favorite romantic nightspots for some time. Now we’ve begun to enjoy its lunch specials as well. We don’t know of another place in town with such unassuming class, good service, pleasant classical music and an intelligent selection of wines. The recent crowds at St. Martin’s are making it a little more difficult to find a table on Friday and Saturday evenings. (3020 Greenville. 8260940. Lunch: Mon-Fri 11 am-3 pm. Dinner: Mon-Thur 5 pm-11 pm: Fri 5 pm-1 am. Sat 11 am-1 am: Sun brunch 11:30 am-3 pm. All credit cards.)
Stoneleigh P. This is an artist’s bar And a businessman’s bar And a construction worker’s bar. And a housewife’s night-out-on-the-town bar. And just about anyone’s bar.

Strictly TaBu. A recent return to the TaBu confirms our faith in Dallas’ best jazz bar if not just for the jazz -which is varied and lively-but for the easy, unpretentious atmosphere. We like the dining area in the back, where pizza and pasta are the highlights. This is the perfect place for a late-night rendezvous with an intimate stranger-or an old friend.

All credit cards.)
Texas Tea House. The Tea House is a friendly, trendless c/w spot to drink beer and enjoy the harmony-lacking but good-natured Will Barnes Band.

Vickery Feed Store.

The White Elephant Saloon. In 1887, Luke Short, then the owner of the White Elephant, shot it out with a former U.S. marshal.

Closed Sun. MC. AE. V)
The Wine Press. From the floor to the very high ceiling of The Wine Press are racks upon racks of bottles of wine, therein lies the atmosphere of this artsy Oak Lawn brasserie. We enjoy sampling several different wines by the glass, and are particularly delighted with the flavor of the chocolate cheesecake. The omelets are good, too, but skip the pasta. (4217 Oak Lawn. 522-8720 Mon-Sat 11 am-2 am. Sun noon-2 am. No reservations. MC. V, AE.)
Zanzibar Deli. A fresh face on the burger-spattered strip of lower Greenville Avenue, Zanzibar offers drinks and great deli food in a colorful cale setting.

William Holden, Peter Finch, Robert Duvall and Faye Dunaway star in this satire of the television industry.
