Dallas Nightclubs and Bars Currently Reopen After Coronavirus

After three months of darkness, Dallas bars will be allowed to turn the lights on beginning this Friday.

Under Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Monday that Texas bars could reopen for business May 22 at 25 percent of capacity. The guidelines also allow nightclubs, craft breweries and wine tasting rooms to reopen.
