A Hillsboro Village stalwart featuring foreign, indie and classic films as well as expertly booked live music such as Jenny Lewis, M. Ward and the Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars.
A 24-hour coffeehouse and café with an outdoor patio, Café Coco is like a childhood teddy bear, a bit worn for the wear, but it’s still a favorite haunt of youthful local musicians and their support teams, as well as caffeine-fueled students on an all-night cram. Vegetarian-friendly.
This upscale supper club with Texas ties (the brother-sister owners opened the first Sambuca in Dallas) gussies up the gritty Gulch with live music seven nights a week and fine dining created by globe-trotting chef Stephen Shires. His extensive travel and experience in international kitchens of renown packs his menu with worldly influence and discovery. The nightly entertainment is built into the dining costs, which puts entrées in the $20-$30 range.
