June 2019: Just in time for summer, we've updated our list of the best bars in Dallas to include five new watering holes. Head to the tropical escape 4 Kahunas Tiki Lounge (#3) for flaming bowls of rum or Ruins (#7) for imported tequila, mescal and whiskey. Beat the heat at Waterproof, a rooftop pool bar atop the Statler hotel. Finally, we've added two Texas classics, honky tonk bar Mama Tried (#5) and (arguably) the city’s most famous and well-loved dive bar The Grapevine (#15).
Welcome to the Time Out DRINK List, our handpicked ‘best of’ Dallas nightlife this season. This is where we tip our ten-gallon hats to our favorite bars in DFW, from Polynesian-themed watering holes and Dallas restaurant bars to two separate rooftop pools atop the best hotels in Dallas. Along the way, you'll also find Dallas classics with updated and expanded offerings (think Times Ten Cellar and Sixty Vines).
