Truth and Alibi

Best nightclub in Deep Ellum, Dallas!
Truth and Alibi

The mastermind twin brothers Chris and Mark Beardon decided to make the entrance of the nightclub Truth & Alibi behind The Original Deep Ellum Candy Company, a tiny candy shop. As clubbers enter the building, one by one they move towards the Willy Wonka-esque candy shop’s ‘secret’ door which requires a password to enter and that takes them into a dark, long room. On one side, a bar, and on the other, a collection of couches and chairs that serve as tables. The candy shop front is meant to mirror the types of shops that covered up night clubs and bars during the prohibition era. Under the cover of many waterfall chandeliers, deep blue lights, and roaring 20s themed furnishings, guests are able to enjoy drinks from an extensive cocktail menu, tasty finger foods and appetizers and music from a selection of the hottest DJs that Dallas has to offer.

Citizen

Citizen

To the owners of this Dallas nightclub, located near the golden mile of Uptown restaurants, Citizen refers to someone who feels at home and comfortable. At Citizen nightclub, they have tried hard to emulate an atmosphere where everyone can go at their own pace and enjoy themselves. Whether you want to relax quietly with a friend and enjoy a drink or two in the early evening, wander through a gorgeous patio during the dwindling moments of daylight, party on the dance-floor well into the dark, or sit at the bar during happy hour, the energy made at Citizen, through its versatile arrangement of their bar and lounge, aims to serve any and all desires. Late at night when the nightclub portion of Citizen takes on a more dynamic energy, guests are able to enjoy the bartenders hopping up on the tabletops while the servers light sparklers under the white smoke created by CO2 getting pumped out of the beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceilings. The room takes on a hazy sultry vibe as DJs crank up the music and the lights come down low, becoming indistinguishable from the hottest nightclubs in Vegas. This bona fide and upscale cocktail lounge features a carefully created cocktail and champagne list, an excellent food menu, and architecture well-suited to all manner of people. Citizen presents the finest environment in which you can enjoy and indulge yourself and most importantly be yourself without fear of judgment.
