While it's really Tarrant County on the Arlington GP border; does anyone have memories and/or history of this place that is on GSW PARKWAY ( NOW DIAMOND JIMS) I know it was there in the 7os when I reached legal drinking age but apparently from what little I can gather it was around since circa 1961. An old clip on you tube shows a WFAA reporter covering story about legal liquor by the drink in Tarrant County. He was at the nightspot
speaking with the owner and reference is made to legal drinking in Tarrant County for first time in 52 years.
A girl swings from a swing above the bar which is still there. Can't find a posting option or search feature on ARLINGTON historical web site. That's why I'm posting here to see if anyone can enlighten me as to the bars origins. My guess is it lasted thru 80 S as a pool hall.
