Whether you're in the mood for a casual night out, somewhere to hang while watching the game or a night of exclusivity, these Dallas hotel bars have just what you're looking for.
CLASSIC HOTEL BARS
This popular bar in Uptown gets its name from the (fake!) rattlesnake that spans the entire length of the bar. It's home to one of seven unique dining selections at the Ritz, serving Chef Dean Fearing's Signature Margarita, tasty American cuisine and Tex Mex favorites like quesadillas and tacos.
A local staple, the Mansion Bar in Uptown is a stylish and intimate bar filled with Southern décor and a charming ambiance. The cocktail menu changes seasonally and offers fresh and innovative cocktails and signature specialties like the Mansion G&T, Manhattan and Texas Margarita.
Located in North Dallas, The Front Room Tavern provides an airy, vibrant atmosphere, perfect for an after-hours drink. If you want to heat up your summer, go with the Spicy Margarita. Need to cool off? Then the Aperol Spritz is the way to go. Whatever you order, this bar has plenty of refreshing drinks that won't disappoint.
This one will always make the list of the coolest bars in Dallas. Midnight Rambler is located in the basement of the Joule Hotel Downtown 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.
With a limited capacity of about 25 guests, Room 520 is a secret bar quietly tucked away between rooms at Sova, a boutique hotel with mini-rooms. Inspired by Japanese culture, Room 520 features cocktails crafted from coveted Japanese whiskies. Just be sure to check in at the front desk for the password or you're never getting in. And reservations are strongly recommended.
Check out the Draft Sports Bar and Lounge at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel Downtown 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, you can also hit the private karaoke lounge to show off your singing skills!
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 TVs 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 popular choices.
The picturesque views of Downtown, light-up neon bar and the rooftop infinity pool make the Gallery Rooftop Lounge at the Canvas Hotel the perfect hotel hotspot. Order one of the art-themed cocktails, like the Tipsy Watercolor, a beautiful concoction filled with lemon vodka and blackberry puree, or the Mixed Media, a spicy drink with a cider popsicle. If you're genuinely in the mood for a surprise, ask for the Artist of the Night cocktail, which changes daily.
Cool down with a colorful cocktail at Waterproof as the Statler. The rooftop bar is an urban oasis full of good drinks and a good time. Sip on one of their craft cocktails, like the Skyline Margarita, a pineapple-and-jalapeno-infused drink or the Frozen Downtown Chill, while enjoying the sunset in Downtown Dallas.
Located in Uptown, Upside is a modern rooftop bar and the place to be seen. Enjoy any of their cocktails, which are named after famous actresses, or sip on a glass of wine from their extensive list. Not only are the drinks spectacular, but the view from this rooftop bar of Downtown Dallas can't be beaten!
