As you watch the food delivered to the tables at HG Sply, your mouth will surely water because chef Javier Briones’ menu is a delight for the eyes and the palette. What you may not notice right away is the laser focus on dishes that are healthy and balanced. There are a number of vegan and gluten-free options, as well as things that cater to a paleo diet. It’s not all quinoa and kombucha, though. The cocktail program features delicious and refreshing creations, many of which have house-made infused spirits.

Happiest Hour

Bar, Cocktail Bar, American, $$$
Touted as Dallas’ largest bar and patio, Happiest Hour sits in the Victory Park neighborhood and is known for its stunning rooftop views of downtown Dallas. Happiest Hour has a large selection of cocktails, wine, and beer, and a small menu for brunch, happy hour, and desserts. The rooftop bar is the most popular of the sections, with cozy couches and fire pits in the winter, though the downstairs patio and main bar gets crowded, too, with visitors watching a game on the large flat-screen TVs.

Wits End

Bar, American, $$$
Wits End is a graffiti-laden bar that’s often filled with live performances of rock bands or DJs. One section of the downstairs area features video games, pool, and foosball. Their cheap drinks are made better by their low-key rooftop bar with great views of Deep Ellum and downtown Dallas. They will sometimes have a band or DJ on the rooftop to add to the ambient night air. Be aware that there’s sometimes an entrance fee when there’s a live performance.

The Quarter Bar

Bar, American, $$$
The Quarter Bar in Uptown Dallas is styled to look like a bar in New Orleans. The wooden bar area feels historic, while the rooftop bar area is filled with iron tables and surrounded by greenery and flowers. Bar goers can look over the iron railing at those walking between bars, a similar experience to that of Bourbon Street. While there’s not a ton of space on the rooftop patio or in the bar, the French Quarter-esque style is unique, the drink selection is diverse, and the menu of great bar food is sure to make for a great visit.

There’s a fun vibe to Stirr. While the downstairs is their American restaurant, the upstairs is a lively bar with stunning downtown views. Top 40s and hip-hop jams played on the weekends, the modern-style photo booth, and the awesome cocktails all combine to attract a young, hip crowd. Don’t write-off the 2nd floor bar during the day either. They have a great menu of salads, burgers, and American favorites to enjoy on comfortable chairs and benches.
