Libertine is located on the corner of Richmond and Greenville in the Lower Greenville area of downtown Dallas. Parking could be dicey as it is now allowed at the plaza next door.
The exterior of the building has a large sci-fi themed painting on it. The interior opens to a large space with the bar running along the left side and a row of table/booths on the right. There is additional seating in the rear. Large brewery banners and flags on the ceiling, and other breweriana on the walls. Maroon and wood colors, and a namesake Libertine movie homage is near the entrance too. Behind the bar are some chalkboards listing the available beers.
Libertine has around 10 beers on draught, including several Texan breweries like Martin House, Lakewood, Armadillo, Community and Rabbit Hole. They also have around 50 bottled options, again with several TX brewers represented.
Service for a Sunday brunch was consistently good throughout our visit. The place was empty when we got there but filled up fast, and the server kept up and provided samples.
As for the brunch, my "World’s Greatest Sandwich" and Bleu Cheese Potato Cakes were good.
Overall this is a cool bar that doesn’t have a huge selection, but offers some worthwhile options along with good food.

Visited December 2012.
This is a small bar on a small street that was under construction at the time which made parking difficult. They have a large selection of bottles and a handful of taps. Most were interesting selections and I got to try a couple of new beers. I didn’t pay much attention to the bottles because I can get that stuff anywhere but they had a few good things on there. The food was good and the prices were a bit high. I’d probably stop back for the eclectic tap lineup.
Decent place on Greenville Ave. They are sort of hit or miss on the tap list - sometimes they have great brews and others just decent. The food is pretty good but they’re lacking knowledgable waitstaff.
Very cool, relaxed spot on lower Greenville. Good selection of bottles (priced fairly) but a sub-par tap list (I suggest they double the number of taps and keep ’em true craft) on our group’s visit. Food was good and service at our table was very good. Good spot for a bite and a bottle.
Visited with a group of ratebeerians. Nice place in sort of a run down part of Greenville. Very nice and large interior. Some parking, but not much. Food was good from what ericandersnavy gave me. Menu looked nice as well. Service was about average. Bottle list was nice, but I do not go to bars in Dallas to get bottled beers. To be real honest the tap selection was not first rate. There were only 3 real craft beers on tap (Hop Rod Rye, Mama’s lil Yellow Pils, and Boulevard Pale), and the hoppy beers tasted like they might have been on tap for a while. The other taps were more generic like Stella, Boddingtons, ect. Worth going for the food. Nice music!
I really like this place. There are only nine taps, but they rotate frequently and always include several beers that are very good. In addition to the taps, there is a nice bottle selection. The food is above average pub grub that also has some more exotic items such as mussels and exotic cheeses. There are televisions, but this is not a sports bar. It can get somewhat busy and loud, but overall it is a nice pub with great atmosphere.
Great, great selection. On my last visit they had Victory Limited Ale, Full Sail Wassail, Southern Star Promm, St Arnold Winter Stout and Deschutes Black Butte Porter. I’ve seen stuff like Stone 13th Anniversary on tap too. About 8 or 9 taps.
Food is great - they consistently win the Dallas paper/mag reviews for Best Bar Food in Dallas.
And cheap. Their steak which is really good is only $13 - and it is the most expensive thing on the menu. On Tuesdays ALL FOOD IS HALF PRICE.
Include a monthly beer dinner that features the likes of Real Ale and Boulevard and you’ve got a gem in the city. Right there with The Gingerman as where I go when I want a great beer in this town.
Medium sized bar with an old world vibe. Big open interior with a large wooden bar and an eclectic mix of tables. Had a ahi tuna sandwich that was delicious and only 9 bucks. Beer selection wasn’t that great but everything did come in a proper glass. Staff was nice and the crowd was older folks and gays. Odd indy music playing. This bar seems as confused as its patrons. Either way it was a decent time.
