Whether relaxing after a long work day, gathering with friends or family, or looking to impress an important date, the type of bar you head to for drinks can make or break your experience. Luckily, Dallas boasts a beautiful cocktail culture and plenty of elevated spaces to enjoy an evening sip.
With an historic home in the heart of Uptown Dallas, this contemporary cocktail house is a hip spot for any gathering or celebrations. Enjoy a fine old fashioned or classic high ball, though we suggest getting cozy with a creative cocktail like the 90s Baby with vodka, dry curacao, cranberry gin, sweet lime and citric acid. Good news for the industry crowd. Bowen House is open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, but it's open from 4 p.m. "untill" they decide to close on Sundays through Tuesdays.
Featuring 20-plus signature cocktails and an extensive list of shareable bites, Royal 38 is a great spot to drink, snack, and mingle with your friends or impress a date. Enjoy ahi tuna nachos or Asian braised short rib while sipping on a cocktail from the extensive menu featuring vodka, gin, tequila and mezcal, rum and more. We love the Green Tara with vodka, jasmine green tea, lemon, lime and vanilla bean.
If you’re looking for a late-night spot, Apothecary brings all the romance. This avant-garde cocktail lounge is perfect for you and your partner to celebrate a special moment or get to know each other better over creative cocktails like the Octopus's Garden and The Pea Cocktail. Fine dining snacks are also available, from lotus root chips to gimlet ceviche and torched wagyu nigiri.
Located inside the the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, The Mansion Bar offers live music every Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m. if you're looking to start your weekend with a bang. Enjoy jazz, soul and American pop played by expert performers while you sip and cheers with a classy cocktail.
This elegant and cozy spot provides all you need, from good food and drinks to music. The Mitchell is warm and intimate, great if you’re looking for a quiet spot to relax with a food menu that will entice and satisfy.
