For example: Aqua Lounge in downtown FW paid just over $10,000 in taxes in August. City Streets nearly $22,000. (Must be all those suggestive sounding shots served in test tubes.) The Library, a whopping $28,000 (some serious TCU drinkers in there.) Pour House, $23,000.
In Big D, Escapade 2001 on Finnell St. is far and away on top with $89,380 just for the month of August.
House of Blues and Ghostbar come in at around $50,000 each. Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa, $43,000. Station 4, $40,900. Purgatory, $36,000. Capitol Pub, $24,000. Gilleys of Dallas, $47,643 (just a couple hundred more than Billy Bob's).
The Dallas Gentlemen's Club, $43,200.
But enough of my discoveries. Search for yourself. It's fun peeking at their books.
