What makes Dallas a special city is the unstoppable and innovative spirit of the people whose creative inspiration is never lacking. This can be witnessed in the sometimes quirky and always interesting themed restaurants around the city where eating out is more than an adventure. These awesome colorful themed restaurants will have you promising yourself to return again and again.

Magic Time Machine

The Magic Time Machine has been delighting Dallas revelers since 1979 with its outrageous costumed servers, peculiar seating arrangements, and hearty fare. You don’t have to be a kid to get a kick out of the modified 1952 fiery red MG-TD Roadster serving as a salad bar or by enjoying your meal in a genuine teepee or carousel. You just have to keep an open mind.

The energized and eccentric atmosphere is coupled with a great menu including slow-roasted prime rib, fresh seafood, grilled chicken, and smoked pork loin. There is also a libations menu inviting you to sample Magic Time Machine’s unique and flavorful house drink specialties. You will want to visit this unusual venue if you like surprises, laughter, and one-of-a-kind customer service.

Bowl & Barrel

Bowl & Barrel isn’t your ordinary bowling alley serving paper cup beer and mediocre burgers. It is more like a fine lounge and restaurant where a bowling alley just happened to pop up. This fun venue is boutique bowling with exceptional dining options including surprising fare like stuffed mushrooms, fresh green salad, meat pies, and oysters. All of this is served with a smile by an experienced staff.

Bowl & Barrel’s menu uses only high-quality, locally sourced ingredients which is likely one of the reasons why it is a popular choice for parties and get-togethers of all sizes. The in-house event coordinator is always on hand to help you plan the perfect office party, baby shower, or fundraiser. You can let the good times roll and eat well too. It’s a win/win for the community.

The Playground

The Playground is a Dallas Uptown bar with a penchant for spicy tacos, signature quesadillas, and other street food. It is an intentionally laid-back spot with a playful attitude and you will be glad you stopped by. The focus is on relaxed, familiar entertainment conjuring up memories of those old school days. You can watch the games on one of the twelve big screen TVs or you can play hopscotch in the backyard.

Favorite arcade games chime merrily on the second floor while out on the patio you can find swings and a seesaw. Multiple picnic tables are painted with iconic patterns of board games like checkers, tic tac toe, and backgammon. The Playground is a newer addition to the bar scene in the neighborhood but it’s a whimsical and affordable destination for fun, food, beer, and socializing.

Dallas is a wonderful and vibrant city to call home. One Dallas Center offers spacious apartments in a convenient location with the best of amenities. For more information, you can contact us anytime.
