Located just a beer cap’s toss from Baylor hospital, the Elbow Room may be a hole-in-the-wall, but it feels more like a canyon. It has a dive-bar aesthetic, but it's really just a solid neighborhood bar that draws a crowd of doctors, business people and SMU students. Free shuffleboard is a big draw, and if you come through here enough, you’ll get to know just about everyone else who does too. The patio, a solid choice for a Saturday-afternoon hangout, is as spacious as the inside.
The pizza is popular among regulars, and Elbow Room delivers too.
