Corinth, Texas, is a friendly suburb, sitting in the north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, just to the left of Lake Lewisville. There’s a lot to do on a night out, from live music and dancing, to casual or upscale places to drink and dine. Whether you want to chill on the patio with friends, or get up and dance, there is something fun to do in and around Corinth as the sun sets. Here are a few fun things you will want to check out the next time you’re in the mood for some fun.
Dan’s Silverleaf is located on Industrial Road in Denton, about ten minutes north of Corinth. This roadhouse-like bar is unpretentious and welcoming, offering a range of live music from Tejano to experimental, rock to jazz. The back porch gives a friendly, relaxed place to hang outdoors, with an open bar and stage for performers. The live shows bring in local musicians as well as ones from all over to delight music fans of all kinds, with a modest cover charge. The building’s aqua walls are a fun and inviting mural, which is matched inside.
The Horse’s Axe
Ax throwing, billiards, and beer: does this sound like your idea of a good time? Then head on over to The Horse’s Axe which just opened in 2020. It has two locations, one in Denton just off Denton Square, and one in Denison. Here you’ll find ax throwing lanes and billiards tables in a fun environment. The ax targets use end-grain wood to help the ax stick, and the ax is yours to keep and use as a coupon when you visit again. They have tournaments for the truly ax-dedicated. Drinks and snacks are available to purchase, including beer, wine, and soda.
