How to make the Margarita Mile work for your group

Whether you're hosting five or 50, the Margarita Mile is a must during your time in Dallas.

Posted on Apr 15, 2019

Please note: we're mixing it up! The Margarita Mile is becoming a seasonal self-guided tour. We're taking a break for Dallas' (very short) winter. The app will no longer be available beginning Sept. 30, 2021. We'll be back, on National Margarita Day – Feb. 22, 2022 – and it will be a party! Learn more.


Dallas is home to the Margarita Mile – Dallas' collection of the best and brightest margaritas in the city, conveniently located in a colorful app – and there's no reason your group shouldn't enjoy it during their time in the city. We're making it easy with some tips and tricks on how to get around, start exploring and sip and savor your way through Dallas.


Download the app before you head out.

Get in on all the action by downloading the Margarita Mile app, available on the Apple Store and Google Play. The app lets you see all the stops on the Margarita Mile, along with more information about each spots' signature margarita. There are also prizes up for grabs for those go-getters who want to visit multiple locations, so be sure to check in through the app at each stop!


Take advantage of the McKinney Avenue Trolley.

The historic McKinney Avenue Trolley runs through the heart of Margarita Mile territory. The trolley, or M-Line, starts in the core of Uptown and travels through Klyde Warren Park and into Downtown, making a full loop. Grab your phone, catch a ride on the free trolley and enjoy a safe, car-free day along the Margarita Mile with eight stops all directly on the trolley route or within a less than 10-minute walk. Plus – trollies can be chartered specifically for your group, and you can even set up an experience on board as you cruise the streets of Uptown.


Stay close to the convention center.

While the Margarita Mile offers a robust list of stops to check out, we've also made is easy for those traveling by foot and spending the majority of their time in the Kay Bailey Convention Center Dallas. Just outside the center, you'll find Café Herrera and its Margarita Mile offering, the Maximo Margarita. Another option within walking distance is Wild Salsa along Main Street, just half a mile from the convention center.


Make it part of your sports outings.

If game time is calling your group, our Margarita Mile stops at the local arenas and stadiums will make it easy to indulge. If you're treating your group to a Dallas Cowboys game, check out the CowboyRita at AT&T Stadium. If basketball is more your vibe, the Dallas Mavericks Patron Mavarita available at Dallas Mavericks games at the American Airlines Center is the way to go. Both are available during all home games.


Keep it private.

Several of the Margarita Mile stops offer private dining options, so it's easy to keep business rolling while enjoying Dallas' most delicious cocktail. If you're looking for a high energy outing for your group, Mariano's, Meso Maya, El Fenix and Desperados are all great options and well versed in handling private parties of any size. The upstairs seating area at Tipsy Alchemist also works nicely for a group, as does the semi-private dining space at Wild Salsa.

Looking for a more elevated experience? Fearing's at the Ritz-Carlton Dallas, led by Texas celebrity chef Dean Fearing, lends a spectacular ambience alongside the Dean's Margarita for a true Texan dining experience.

For more intimate groups, PuraPecha in Deep Ellum is a fantastic option. The private room, located inside Margarita Mile stop Revolver Taco, offers an eight-course meal of traditional Mexican dishes.
