The Craftiest Cocktail Bars in Dallas

While it's no secret Dallas is a hub for craft cocktails, these are the bars shaking things up.


Known as one of the top happy hours in town, Parliament in Uptown serves some of the best cocktails not just in Dallas, but in all of DFW. Cocktails are a true form of art, garnished to perfection, and with Indoor and patio seating, this is the perfect destination for all seasons. If you want to drink like a local, this is where you want to be.

Tipsy Alchemist

Be mesmerized by cocktails created from science, the eye of an artist, and the magic of a mixologist. Located in the heart of Uptown, this is not your typical nightlife spot. Watch as your favorite booze is transformed into an experience you’ll never forget.


Located in Deep Ellum, Dallas’ most eclectic area, HIDE is home to some of the most innovative libations around. Their unique twist on presentation will satisfy everyone from the beer guzzler to the expertly picky. HIDE is also home to a dynamite burger – get it for only $6 Sunday-Friday from 5-7 p.m.

The Mitchell

Searching for the ultimate Dallas experience? Look no further than The Mitchell located in Downtown Dallas. With food options like roasted bone marrow to escargot and an extensive cocktail list, you’ll understand why the Dallas motto is “Big Things Happen Here.”

Bowen House

A farmhouse owned by Ahab Bowen in the 1800s was reincarnated into Uptown’s trendiest hangout. Here you’ll find eclectic and imaginative drinkable creations. There’s also a private Bar Within A Bar located in the back where guests can enjoy a more intimate experience.


If quaint, cozy bars are your thing, this is the perfect place for you. Jettison in West Dallas takes great pride in expertly crafting classic cocktails with an emphasis on mezcal and sherry. It’s ideal for a romantic evening with that special someone or unwinding after a long day. Pay close attention as this hideaway bar is located inside Houndstooth Coffee at Sylvan Thirty – it’s easy to miss!

Midnight Rambler

This Downtown Dallas hotspot is located inside The Joule, a trendy, boutique hotel across the street from the iconic giant structure “The Eye”. Sip on “aromatic” and “sour” cocktails while taking in a speakeasy-style vibe. Dress to impress here as Dallas’ elite are known to make cameos.

Tiny Victories

One of Dallas’ newest hotspots is bringing sexy back to Oak Cliff. Tiny Victories has brought in the most well seasoned bartenders in Dallas to remind us why we love classic drinks. Relax with an Aviation or Whiskey Sour or step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
