Posted on Jul 6, 2017 By Ashley Turner

Whether you're feeling a casual, chic or sports bar vibe, the Dallas bar scene has just what you're looking for. And with all of these spots conveniently located Downtown, we challenge you to visit them all!


1. Monduel's at the Hyatt Regency

Enjoy a local brew with great views of the city at Monduel's. This bar offers a casual and laidback feel that's perfect for unwinding after a long day. Try one of their signature cocktails or sip on your favorite wine in their open-atrium setting. Order a few bar bites from the menu and you're set for the night.

2. Midnight Rambler at the Joule

This one will always make the list of the coolest bars in Dallas. Midnight Rambler is located at the basement of the Joule Hotel and is worth a visit any day of the week.  Between the vintage décor, plush leather couches and extensive cocktail menu, you're in for a good time.


3. The Lounge at the Magnolia Downtown

For an upscale feel, head to The Lounge inside the Magnolia hotel. The bar and restaurant share the same space, so start with a nice sit-down dinner then move to the bar for drinks! The dinner menu includes everything from steaks to sandwiches, with an exquisite wine menu for perfect pairings.


5. The Owners Box at the Omni

The larger-than-life screen at the Owners Box (16-feet tall to be exact!) will make you feel like you're right in front of the action of any game. And if that's not enough, they've got over 70 additional TV's in every corner, including the bathrooms. Have a drink on the patio and order a bite to eat – the spicy buffalo wings or gold medal burger are always a popular choice.

4. Rodeo Bar at the Adolphus

Feel like you're back in the Old West at this Dallas iconic hotel. The bar features tons of images and memorabilia on the walls representing all things Texas. Order your favorite beer and relax in this casual space. The food menu includes barbecue, hamburgers and other small bites to enjoy throughout the night.  


6. Rattlesnake Bar at the Ritz-Carlton

This popular bar isn't quite in Downtown, but it's close enough and you definitely don't wait to miss it.  It gets its name from the (fake!) rattlesnake that spans the entire length of the bar.  It's home to one of seven unique dining sections at the Ritz, serving up Chef Dean Fearings's signature margarita. Go for happy hour Monday-Friday for drink specials and enjoy live music every Thursday night. And order some Texas-themed bar food that's loaded with Tex-Mex favorites like tacos and quesadillas.

7. Draft Media Sports Lounge at the Sheraton

Check out the Sports Lounge at the Sheraton and enjoy more than 20 flat screens to catch all your favorite sports team (we're a fan of the Rangers, Stars, FC Dallas, Wings, Mavs and Cowboys, in case anyone asks!) And order some grub and a beer to keep you satisfied. If you're brave, hit up the karaoke lounge to show off your singing skills, or play it safe with a game of pool or some video games.
