Hidden Japanese Cocktail Lounge in the Sky

We found the next hidden gem located on the 50th floor of The National - in the center of the historic observation deck.


Kessaku is an intimate Japanese Cocktail Lounge with a speakeasy vibe that can only be accessed through Monarch on the 49th floor. Upon arriving at Monarch, you will be ushered to the 50th floor, where you will start the night with a world-class cocktail and 360-degree views of the Dallas skyline.

The menu is a dialogue between the traditional and the experimental that will take you on a journey to explore many flavors and textures in an glam, intimate setting. Kessaku offers a curated selection of the freshest and globally sourced nigiri, sashimi and eclectic rolls that you can pair with its extensive collection of sake or hand-crafted cocktails.
