DEEP ELLUM’s core audience of hardcore beer geeks loves it for its two-dozen-plus drafts, 80-deep selection of abstruse small-producer bottles, and regularly changing cask beers. Unusual for a beer-snob paradise, it also fires the ardor of craft-cocktail aficionados with its devotion to pre-Prohibition cocktails and original creations in their spirit. Reasonably priced gastro-pubby updates of classic American bar food complete a trifecta of thoughtful, well-made food and drink. In a neighborhood full of interchangeable, forgettable undergraduate-oriented bars, Deep Ellum is a place for grownups who take their fun seriously.
