The Church is one of the best places to find hookups in Garland
I know. Why in the world would you want to hook up at church? It’s actually a dance club called The Church. On regular days it's The Lizard Lounge, but on Thursday and Sunday nights it transforms to become The Church. This bar is a typical “goth” club, but it’s rated the number one Garland hookup bar for a reason. There are five separate lounges, three DJs, a rooftop patio and an eclectic mix of 80s, house, electro, ambient, industrial and goth music.
We chose The Church because of the glorious rooftop balcony where one can escape the cacophony of the dance floor and for the special-event nights. Your chances of a hookup quadruple on theme nights (Fetish ball? Skin party? Yes, please). We also love the live performances! According to their website, Nine Inch Nails, Korn, Depeche Mode, Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson have performed on The Church stage.
Know there’s a mix of folks here, but it’s the kindest crowd around Dallas County. It’s in the Swiss Avenue historic district--just a quick drive from Downtown Garland. Rumors swirl about paranormal activity and hauntings. But you’re not going to hook up with a ghost, are you? They’re open Sunday and Thursday (the new Friday), they’ve got a full bar and ample parking. Have fun and get lucky!
AFF is the best hookup app in Garland (try it free)
Since Tinder has really fallen off in Garland now that it's more about relationships, very few guys are getting good hookup results. If you actually want a hookup AFF has become the best option. And, as Tinder matures into more of an LTR (Long Term Relationship) app, AFF is still the app people use when they just want to bump n’ grind.
For most people out there (especially guys) AFF's free trial is going to give you the best results and is the first app you should try. You really don’t have anything to lose by checking it out and could give yourself a lot of new options. We have seen the best response from women using it and are pretty confident you will too.
Too many hookups begin online for you to ignore it completely. You need to be on at least one app so it makes sense to use the one with 60 million active members and solid success rates for single guys. Each year, AFF makes it to our exclusive list of top hookup apps and sites so we know it's worth checking out their free trial below.
The best Garland pickup bars we've tried
Bars are a go-to if you want to find hookups in Garland. But if you're not sure which ones are always full of girls, we've got you covered.
32 Degrees at Urban Crust serves ice-cold drinks and the hottest hookups in Garland
Pizza!? How am I going to hook up at a pizza place? Don’t let the name fool you. Make your way through the doors and upstairs to the third-floor ice bar called 32 Degrees. Why is it named 32 Degrees? All draft beers are served at that exact temperature. Liquor taps (Patron, Fireball and craft Moscow Mule) pour at -5 Degrees.
We loved 32 Degrees for the open seating at the third-floor patio and bar, the happy hour and the live music. Get upstairs on a Thursday night when they have live acoustic music and find out why we chose 32 Degrees Bar as a top hookup bar. So if you can't seem to score Dallas hookups, this spot is worth a shot.
Happy hour is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. DJs spin Top 40s on Friday from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. It’s the coolest casual hookup spot in Garland!
Bring your best wingman to The Wing’d Nut
Ready to get your hands on some breasts? No chicken breasts here, just chicken wings. It is, without a doubt, the classiest sports bar in Garland. There’s beer on tap, wine and specialty drinks like the Beach Babe, the Three-Legged Monkey, Texas Two-Step and the Nutty Mule.
We try our best to diversify our list of local hookup bars and The Wing’d Nut was one of the sweetest sports bars we’ve ever reviewed. Hotties were dotting the bar and sitting with friends in booths, either enjoying the games or looking for their own hookups. Even Fort Worth girls agree that this is one of the best hotspots in town.
That’s why we recommend you bring your best bud and check it out for yourself. Happy hour runs long, Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.! Come on in during one of their watch parties and watch out for more than the game!
The best clubs for finding hookups in Garland
Bring in the noise, the crowds and the drinks because these are the hottest clubs where you can find girls!
Check out The Balcony Club for local life and local live music
It’s set a little closer to Dallas but it’s worth the extra 10-minute drive. They serve up live jazz, open mic nights and spoken word each night of the week. They've got a full menu that has a mix of different bar food and burgers, as well as amazing drinks and drink specials. So if getting laid in El Paso seems like a huge challenge, why not drop by here?
This place has the coziest ambiance and the coolest vibes as the improvisational jazz vibrate throughout the crowd. Single ladies come with girlfriends to listen to music and to be seen. Sometimes, when the musician or the artist on stage is fantastic, the entire audience comes together. It’s an incredible place to groove with people who have similar taste in music or just to make new friends.
Da Boyz Sports Bar and Grill is where the action is
Da Boyz is the #1 Sports Bar in Garland. It’s no wonder why when you see the interior. It’s a standing homage to the Dallas Cowboys! They’ve also got more than 20 HD TVs playing sports around the nation, ice-cold beer on tap and an outdoor covered patio. Come watch pay-per-view fights on the weekends, or sing Karaoke during the week.
Now down to business. Why did we list Da Boyz Sports Bar as one of our top hookup bars? Because it’s definitely where the hottest Cowboys’ fans rock their fists in support of the home team. You can easily hook up with a fellow Cowboys fan! During the week, drop in on Tuesdays for Ladies Night or Wednesdays for trivia night and match wits with some of the cutest and brainiest women in Garland.
They’re open till 2 a.m. on Saturdays, happy hour runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Stop for a pre-game drink and check out the local hotties who love the game. And then bust out your best game.
Best places to meet sexy Garland girls during the day
In case the usual bars and clubs are getting old, it's time to change it up by heading to these daytime hookup hotspots.
Sutton Family Farms is an unexpected place to get laid in Garland
It sounds like a grocery store, but it’s essentially a produce stand in South Garland that’s been in business for 40 years. They provide restaurants with fresh fruits and vegetables, and their customers can browse the aisles for the same but also eggs, nuts, seeds and a variety of jams and jellies.
When you're thinking about the best places where you can get laid think a little with your stomach. Few places attract more single women regularly than quality grocery stores, especially fit and healthy women.
It was formerly Cotton’s Market but recently came under new ownership. We think it’s a great way to meet locals who care about the community as much as you. This tiny store has its fair share of regulars, and they’re pretty friendly. Who knows, one of these regulars might be up for a little flirtation between the aisles.
Rosalind Coffee is for caffeine-infused encounters
While out scouting locations around Garland, our team members stumbled upon this hidden gem. Not only was it a delicious hidden treasure, but it’s also one of the top three cafes in Garland. You can even go here to meet up with someone you matched with on the best hookup apps in Lubbock.
Rosalind coffee is an inviting environment where strangers can strike up a conversation and become fast friends. If you’re hoping to knock it out of the park with a similar coffee snob in Garland and you’re not into the hookup bars or the hookup apps, check out Rosalind.
Other great hookup spots to get laid in Garland
Now that we’ve covered some of our favorites, here are a few more options where you can find hookups in Garland.
The Flying Saucer on The Lake is the best bar to get laid in
It’s not just a brewpub-slash-gastropub, it’s also an outdoor wooden viewing deck that overlooks the lake. There’s an extensive food menu, 50 beers on tap and highly knowledgeable staff that will hold your hand through the process. From our experience, it's also the best bar to get laid, and we'll explain why.
We love The Flying Saucer because they’ve brought to Garland a fun way to interact and drink beer with others. If you intend on visiting The Flying Saucer often, make sure you sign up for a Beerknurd account and keep track of the beers you’ve guzzled. If you drink your pints like a good boy, you can rise to the top and become the Overall Beerknurd, and then view your name on their website.
They have the Sunday and Monday draft specials, Tuesday through Thursday social hour, the Flying Saucer Trivia Bowl on Tuesdays and the Rare Tap Night on Friday nights. Get out there, Beerknurd, and show them you mean business!
Tinder turns up the heat in Garland
You’re not into the club scene, you don’t like sports bars and coffee shops bore you. Maybe none of that applies, but you don’t feel like going out and trying to chat chicks up only to feel uninspired. And, seriously? You’re just trying to get some action. Tinder is still world-famous and one of the hottest online options. On Tinder, locals log in and swipe their way to a perfect match.
Just remember: Like attracts like. Meaning, if you know your personality, looks and body are not in the top 10% to 15%, the hottest chicks probably won’t respond. And even if you’ve got the face and body of a Calvin Klein underwear model, some ladies on Tinder won’t care. A lot of them are just on Tinder for the ego boost.
If you’re older than 28 and you’re an Average Joe, you might want to try AFF instead. Tinder is mainly occupied by college students, college grads or young professionals. While not promising for most, it's where you can get laid if you're young and good looking.
