After close to 6,000 votes, the competition for the title of "Best Bar in the Ar-La-Tex," has come to this.  The top 5 bars from North West Louisiana, North East Texas, and South West Arkansas have been determined and will now go head to head to determine the best of the best for the entire region!

The first round wasn't without it's hiccups though, we have determined on bar in the Louisiana category isn't exactly real.  After some investigation (hic), it became apparent that Bohalls Beverage Barn is a pseudonym for Ernie's Bar.   As it turns out, this is the name the employees and regulars use for the place when the owner is away.  Since both the real establishment and the alter-ego were in the running - Bohalls will be effectively and immediately disqualified.

Voting ends at midnight on Friday Dec 8th. You're top 5 bars in each category are as follows:


Secrets Bar and Billards

Big Country

Eddie's Tavern

Southside Saloon

Bayou Thunder Saloon



Where’s Rufus Sports Bar
