The fact that DFW cities didn't make it onto any of the best cities for singles lists doesn't mean that finding your love connection here is a lost cause. Nor does it mean that you have to settle for one of those online dating sites in order to find someone to go out on the town with. Whether you're on the prowl to meet the love of your life or you just want to hook up with other unattached friendly folks, these popular DFW watering holes are filled with singles in the mood to mingle. You can also find more bars listed here.

Concrete Cowboy
2512 Cedar Springs Road
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 934-1959 

This Uptown hot spot is a sports bar, a cocktail lounge and a dance house all in one. If you come on a weekend night, be prepared to wait with all of the other 20- and 30-somethings in a line that stretches around the building. That is unless you arrive with a group of lovely ladies where you'll be assured a swift entry through the red velvet ropes. Live bands, DJs and people gyrating off tables and dance poles will have your head spinning; so will the potent drinks served here. If you really want to go posh, take a seat on one of the plush orange sofas and order up a magnum of Dom Perignon Luminous. It's sure to make an impression on any potential suitors.

15207 Addison Road
Addison, TX 75001
(972) 503-2888 

The upscale Southern cuisine here is phenomenal, but it's the cool sounds of live jazz, blues, R&B and Motown that will soothe your soul and have you dancing the night away. Daily happy hours, Sunday gospel brunches, swing dance lessons and nightly entertainment will provide singles with plenty of opportunities to make a love connection or at least a few new friends. Fort Worth dwellers who want to jazz things up can also find the same soulful sounds at the Buttons location on West Freeway.Related: Best Hookah Bars In DFW


The Bearded Lady
1229 7th Ave.
Fort Worth, TX 76104
(817) 349-9832 

A stellar roster of rotating brews, including 30 craft beers on tap and 120 by the bottle, has made this Near Southside gastropub one of the most popular places to hang out in Fort Worth. It's located in a restored craftsman home, complete with a lively bar scene, intimate seating nooks and an awesome pet-friendly patio where you can watch the action along Magnolia Street. While it may be located in Fort Worth's hipster paradise, The Bearded Lady attracts a diverse group of folks who come for the beer and stay for the good times.

The Fillmore Pub
1004 E. 15th St.
Plano, TX 75074
(972) 423-2400 

There's no need for Plano singles to head over to Big D to find a good watering hole when they've got The Fillmore Pub in the ultra cool historic downtown Plano area. True to a traditional pub atmosphere, the place is filled with dark woods, dim lights and plenty of friendly people ready to strike up a conversation. Not to mention, it has an outstanding selection of food and rotating craft brews. Come here after work if you want a more laid-back ambiance. Or if you're looking for excitement, come at night when the younger crowds turn this place into one big party.
