5 Perfect Patios in Oak Lawn
Say hello to the sunshine or the stars on one of these five great Dallas patios.
Whether it's warm or cold outside, there's something special about enjoying some quality patio time in Oak Lawn with your best friends. So call everyone up and tell them to meet you at one of these incredible patio locations.
Cedar Springs Tap House
Located in the heart of Dallas' gayborhood, the Cedar Springs Tap House is a traditional American bar that offers a great patio and specials on drinks AND food throughout the week. If their impressive selection of beers and burgers isn't enough, you can top it off with their daily homemade cake selection. Thursday night is always Cher-E-oke (like karaoke but dedicated to Cher because who else matters,) and weekend mornings are reserved for hangover brunch. Actual hangovers are not required.
Parigi is a charming restaurant located in the heart of Dallas' Oak Lawn neighborhood with a street side patio. The restaurant has been a local favorite for over 30 years, offering an upscale, yet approachable dining experience. The menu at Parigi is inspired by the flavors of Italy, France, and Spain, and features locally-sourced ingredients and seasonal produce. The restaurant's interior is cozy and intimate, with a warm color palette and artwork by local artists adorning the walls.
JR's Bar and Grill
If one patio isn't enough, JR's Bar and Grill has two! The upstairs balcony offers close access to the second-floor bar and a great view of the Cedar Springs strip. Stop by for happy hour specials and stay for their American Grill menu. It's a great place to hang out, shoot pool or dance the night away.
The Grapevine Bar
Known as the 'best dive bar in the neighborhood,' the Grapevine Bar is a unique mix of indoor-outdoor space with something for anyone. Head up to the rooftop patio to enjoy their fantastic selection of brews and cocktails. Then look down for the action on their basketball court. Yes. Basketball court. So bring your best layup or just hang out in this casual spot to enjoy the fresh air.
Round Up Saloon
If you're looking for an authentic country experience, Round Up Saloon is your place. This cowboy gay bar offers six different bar options, each with its own unique twist. Their rooftop patio is a great place to kick back after a few rounds of two-stepping on their dance floor. They even offer dance lessons so you can show up to impress the next time your friends want to go dancing. Cowboy hats and boots are always optional.
