If you’re wondering where to get a drink and an all-you-can-eat meal, check out Blaze Brazilian Steakhouse, next to The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory. This restaurant is one of the most fun places to go out for birthdays because you can get a big table! Plus, they have great Malbec.

Yard House is another cool spot in the same Las Colinas area as the two bars mentioned above, and I could see why it was so popular after I went. The interior design presents a sophisticated restaurant, but the vibe and sports bar atmosphere make it a fun and casual place to visit.

Another chain establishment I can highly recommend is 54th Street Restaurant & Drafthouse, and I love the one on Market Pl Blvd, near the Ground Control Trampoline Park. This bar has a large menu. For drinks, don’t hesitate to order their happy hour margarita – it’s delicious!
