The Rustic

Hop on and hop off at the Uptown Station (Cityplace West Boulevard and Howell Street)

This local favorite will be celebrating the greatest mixed drink in a BIG way. From 5–8 p.m., The Rustic will be partnering with their friends at Don Julio Tequila to serve up classic on the rocks margaritas from the largest margarita glass in town standing nearly five feet tall! This backyard party will also feature a live DJ.

 

Fearing's and the Rattlesnake Bar

Hop on and hop off at McKinney/Olive Street.

Located inside the Ritz Carlton Dallas, this spot is the swankiest stop along the trolley line. This restaurant and bar offer a haven from outside noise and a peak into five-star luxury. Order the Dean's Margarita for a refreshing treat as you enjoy the glamourous hotel vibes in Uptown. 

 

Las Palmas

Hop on and hop off at  McKinney/Routh St and walk about 2 minutes down Routh Street.

Make reservations well in advance for this hot spot that's quickly becoming a Dallasite staple. Drink up during happy hour for only $7.50. After a round or two of one of their house frozen margaritas with your crew, you'll be glad the trolley is the designated driver for the evening. These strong and incredibly delicious drinks pair well with appetizers of nacho fries followed by fajitas drizzled in unforgettably rich bone marrow butter. 

 

Taqueria La Ventana


Hop on and hop off at the St. Paul/Woodall Rodgers Station and walk about 4 minutes to the right

Craving a Mexican street taco paired with a refreshing margarita? Head to Taqueria La Ventana from 3–6 p.m. for happy hour prices – that's $3.75 for a margarita! Grab your whole crew for a spot on the patio and take in the Dallas skyline while you sip America's favorite cocktail.

 

El Fenix


Hop on and hop off at the St. Paul/Woodall Rodgers Station and walk about 4 minutes to the right

This Dallas institution is in its 104th year and has been mixing up some of the best margs in the city ever since. Treat yourself and the whole family at this age-old favorite which offers something for everyone from scrumptious nachos and taco soup to classic original margaritas or a stiff Mexican martini. 

 

Meso Maya


Hop on and hop off at the St. Paul/Woodall Rodgers Station and walk about 4 minutes to the right

Another happy hour favorite, Meso Maya, will be celebrating with $5 house margaritas from 3–6 p.m. Make an entire night of it and plan for dinner in their courtyard – you won't want to miss out on their cheese Queso Fundido.
