Sip Beautiful Cocktails At These 5 Dallas Bars

By Kiley Faulkner | January 4, 2021 | Food & Drink

For a cocktail that’s (almost) too pretty to drink, head to one of these five hot spots.

1. Botanist
Known for its selection of rainbow-colored, herb-forward cocktails, this Bishop Arts gem has quickly become one of Dallas’ most instagrammable bars. Be sure to order the Bishop Society—a rosy-hued concoction of passion fruit, lime, poppy amaro, lavender, cherry and orange liqueurs, gin and egg whites. 308 N. Bishop Ave.,

2. Bowen House
Nestled on a quiet side street just off Uptown’s bustling McKinney Avenue, this Victorian bungalow-turned-bar is famous for its expert mixologists. Sip on the Cha Cha Cha, a cachaça-based tipple with notes of strawberry, cinnamon and lemon. 2614 Boll St., 214.484.1385, bowenhousetx.‌com

3. The Charles
In the heart of the Design District, this delectable Italian-inspired eatery boasts an equally impressive drink menu. Head to Bar Charles, found at the restaurant’s back end, for the perfect aperitif. For a stunning drink with an even better backstory, try The Charles’ version of a Sbagliato, which is Italian for “mistake.” As legend has it, a bartender grabbed sparkling wine instead of gin when making this cocktail, resulting in a bubbly yet delicious mistake. 1632 Market Center Blvd., 469.917.9000,

4. Henry’s Majestic
A longtime brunch favorite for mimosa enthusiasts, this laid-back tavern is so much more than its Sparkle Bar. A stone’s throw from Knox District, Henry’s touts a covered patio ideal for Dallas’ unpredictable weather. For a hint of fruit, try the Can’t Hardly Wait—a whiskey-based drink blended with blackberry, sage, citrus and honey. If you love a good gourd, order the Headless Manhattan, which uses pumpkin-infused rye. 4900 McKinney Ave., 469.893.9400,

5. The Tipsy Alchemist
Tucked away in Uptown’s Rosewood Court, this swanky cocktail lounge is easy to miss. Luckily its reputation for inventive beverages keeps the crowds coming. Perhaps the buzziest is the Edison—rum blended with nitrogen-frozen mint and served in a light bulb. 2101 Cedar Springs Road, Ste. R125, 214.600.8913, thetipsyalchemist.‌com
