Bar DKDC has been on our radar for sometime. They only open at 5 pm. I have to say that we didn't eat there, hopefully next time. We went to see the band Some Sons of the Mud Boys, silly name, but great band. The inside is very eclectic on an antique-ish meets sixties kind of way! Their venue is... More

Glad you enjoyed seeing Some Sons of Mudboy with us! They are one of the many phenomenal local bands we have playing in our space, and we keep our Facebook page updated with future shows. Come back soon and check out some other killer acts we've got lined up! Kind regards, Karen Carrier, Chef and Owner More

We chose this because of the unique menu online. When we got to the restaurant, the menu was completely different than what we had seen. We waited 5-10 minutes before anyone came to the table (we were the only ones, other than two people at bar) to talk to us. I think if the service had been a bit better... More

Bar DKDC is pretty much of a Memphis secret. It's in the Cooper-Young neighborhood and off the beaten tourist path. It really is a neighborhood bar but it also has some of the best live music to be found anywhere. It shares a kitchen with the well known Beauty Shop restaurant next door so its menu is a bit more...

Great drinks, awesome people, and a funky decor. It's one of my new favorite places, and can't wait to return on future trips to Memphis.

We loved the plush decor, friendly staff and menu of eclectic tastes. Definately try the fried brussels sprouts! So good! I would like to go back for dinner but it's a perfect cozy spot for drinks!

This place feels like a good secret- you don't want to tell everyone about it and once you find it you feel pretty accomplished. It's tucked in next to Mulan and the Beauty Shop. The vibes are great- very midtown and very Memphis. Plus, it's not crazy expensive and I've yet to have a bad meal there. You can't go... More

Went to DKDC for a drink before supper next door at the Beauty Shop. Our hostess very pleasant and recommended some cocktails to try. We found the experience here so nice that we came back for a nightcap before heading back to the hotel.

the photobooth was our favorite part and the staff was super helpful and almost paid for the pictures when we thought we had messed up the card swiping. the cocktail list is mostly $8 hand crafted drinks. we split two small plates and people watched the eclectic people of Cooper Young.

The menus change here, and right now, May 2014, they have a great Middle Eastern theme going. The lamb chop is delicious, as is the hummus and baba ganoush. Portions are decent, except for the bread served with the latter two. You only get about 1/2 of a pita sliced for them, and even if you take the server's recommendation... More

Recently we had dinner on a Thursday night at Bar DKDC. Take note: this is no longer a sushi bar as they've gone American Bistro now. This is wonderful food- inventive, delicious, reasonably priced. Fried Brussel Sprouts? Fabulous! Housemade Onion Rings with a tasty dip? You absolutely must order them! Housemade Pommes Frites? Delicious! We also tried small plate Barbecued... More
