Editorial Review for Bar of Soap – by Amanda Howe
Beat-up black-leather booths, a single worn pool table and a giant fan over the door conjure up comparisons to bad-guy hangouts and fly-specked border-town bars in every gun-toting outlaw movie ever made. But good-natured service and the friendliness of the other bar patrons make this Dallas institution a fun place to drink cheap beer and chat with local characters. The mural over the bar depicting art-deco Fair Park statues as re-envisioned pinups lends humor and color to an otherwise dingy decor. The room in back houses rows of washers and the bartender sells detergent.
No cover and live local and touring bands on Friday and Saturday nights are incentives for fans of alternative and punk music to gather at this small and funky dive.

See a punk band, have a drink, do your laundry
This place is AWESOME. One of the Dallas’ best kept secrets. A punk dive that features great live bands on the weekends. The “stage” is really just one corner of the bar so it’s about as close to a band as you can get without being in it. The back room has a bunch of laundry machines set up so you can actually be productive while you get drunk. There is also a large back yard area with picnic benches set up for quiet socializing if one is so inclined. Crowd is wildly eclectic and totally accepting. A great place to have a good time.

Stripping the branches takes the fun/risk out of livin’ fast and dying young. You know how we are. Everything is bigger and better even our power poles. We are much greener than the rest of the country thinks :mrgreen:
besides, without the branches the dancers would never show up for work and the youngen’s would have nothing to climb :twisted:
