HG Supply Co

The rooftop patio at HG Supply Co is the premier spot for quality cocktails. It’s hard to find a better hangout than under their sleek black cabanas or a seat at their modern bar as the sun sets. Sip on their frozen ‘double under,’ a beet-infused tequila with lime and rosemary syrup and enjoy the warm weather. Also, order from their burger list or appetizer plates on their classic American menu.

Wabi House

The national infatuation with ramen has hit Dallas’ Greenville Ave finally, and there’s no better way to enjoy a piping hot bowl of soup than on the patio at Wabi House. The patio hosts rustic chic wooden tables with feng shui friendly plants and rustic brick to boot. Choose from the likes of the favorite hama rayu, a perfect blend of spicy and tangy over yellowtail, or the crispy pork ears. Most plates are good for sharing, and the patio makes it perfect for a date in the evening or a tapas-style meal for a group.

Taqueria La Ventana

Located in Downtown Dallas, the fun oasis of Taqueria La Ventana is great to escape into a margarita haze. The budget-friendly taqueria serves street tacos with eight choices of meat, like barbacoa and al pastor. You can get great-priced tacos and margaritas while enjoying the evening with stringed bulb lights over head. It’s perfect for a quick stop by for brunch, lunch or drinks with friends.

Rodeo Goat

The outdoor space at Rodeo Goat has a fun industrial chic vibe that mirrors the Design District neighborhood. Rodeo Goat serves up some rustic fare such as their gourmet burgers. Try items the Chaca Oaxaca, a beef burger with chorizo, avocado, fried eggs and tabasco mayo among other ingredients, or the Mike Rawlings, which includes Irish whiskey cheddar, candied bacon and blackberry compote. The sleek, sophisticated atmosphere reflects the creative sensations and quality of the buyers, while the dirt ground adds a homey, down-and-dirty feeling which goes perfectly with these messy creations.
