Three Sheets remains one of the few bars on this stretch of Ross Avenue in East Dallas, offering an upscale wood-walled space that at times doubles as a sports bar. Three Sheets' biggest claim to fame is their huge collection of scotches as whiskeys, offering a familiar lineup of Scottish classics such as Glenlivet and Lagavulin among American standards like Wild Turkey and Johnnie Walker. There is a small menu of predictable bar bites like onion rings and fries as well as burgers and pizzas which are cooked until a half hour before closing. The patio is one of the most cited reasons for visiting Three Sheets, although the views are restrained by an adjacent building and the cigarette-friendliness outdoors can be off-putting to non-smokers. Additionally, the music is usually kept at full volume, so if a quiet conversation is what you're after, this may not be the place. If you're not within walking distance of Three Sheets, consider taking a cab to this location as the bar does have a parking lot, but charges a somewhat outrageous five dollars for mandatory valet parking.
