Going to the playground was one of the best parts of being a  kid. Unfortunately, we all had to grow up and waiting around for a turn on the swings isn't something that we can do anymore... or it is? Playground Bar Uptown in Dallas lets you relive your childhood playground days. The bar has everything from an arcade to seesaws, and their drinks are pretty great too.

The bar is much more than just a regular playground for adults. Their menu consists of spiked frozen pops and jello shot syringes. The fun doesn't stop there - most of their drinks are either flavored like your favorite childhood snacks or have them included in the recipe. One of those includes a Capri Sun with strawberry vodka added to it. While individual drinks are fun to enjoy, there are shareable drinks as well, with names like Garbage Pail Kids and Oscar The Grouch.

You'll never be bored with all the fun stuff they have for you to play with. The decor consists of swings instead of chairs at the bar, giant Jenga, four-player Pacman, hopscotch, and beer pong master. The bar does have nine TVs for when there is a big game and a taco menu that is out of this world.

The bar never runs out of fun and exciting things to do and explore, but it can also be the perfect place to simply kick back and enjoy a juice pouch. You have to check this place out if you live in Dallas or are visiting the big city!

The bar is open from from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. on weekends. Drinks at the bar start at just $4, making this a perfect spot for some affordable fun while you reminisce about your sweet 90s childhood. Oh, how we miss spending recess on the playground!

The Playground Bar is located at 2908 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, TX, 75204. To look at their full menu or for more information on this awesome bar, you can visit their website here.

If unique and playful bars are totally your thing, there are very few other spots in Dallas where you can relax on swings and enjoy colorful, creative cocktails like at the Playground Bar. Though a big contender is the new and upcoming 77 Degrees Bar that will be opening in Dallas sometime next month. The new bar will feature 13,000 sq ft of Carribean fun with plenty of colorful, tropical-themed drinks and loaded pineapple treats. You might just have to check that place out too!
