Dallas, aka The Big D, has much to offer to any visitor, including a thriving arts scene and plenty of sports.

Still, I prefer to spend my visits experiencing all the luxurious libations up for grabs. 

This sprawling Texas metropolis is a prime destination for finding cosmopolitan chic bars amongst the hole-in-the-wall breweries and jukebox joints.

Check out my picks for the most expensive bars in Dallas!


2418 Allen St, Dallas, TX 75204
Visit Website

Located directly south of the Greenwood Cemetery and a few blocks west of Griggs Park, Parliament is the prestigious State Thomas neighborhood’s local haunt for enjoying cocktails in a speakeasy ambiance.

The pre-Prohibition style bar offers an equally historic range of cocktails, including a luxe Champagne Punch with vodka, St. Germain, citrus, strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry.

You can shave a few bucks off your tab by visiting during their Happy Hour from 5 pm to 8 pm, Monday to Saturday.

The Mansion Restaurant

2821 Turtle Creek Blvd, Dallas, TX 75219
Phone: (214) 443-4747

If you’re in the mood for a bit of grandeur during your next night out, stop by The Mansion Restaurant in the Rosewood Mansion.

The Turtle Creek neighborhood’s European escape is a block west of Reverchon Park and the Katy Trail.

The menu boasts modern American fare with a French twist and local ingredients; that same passion extends to its libations.

I was fortunate to experience the chef’s seasonal tasting menu with wine pairings, including a Pouilly Fume from France and a Royal Tokaji from Hungary.

The Library

3015 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219
Phone: (214) 521-5151
Visit Website

After exploring the nearby Design District, I recommend visiting The Library for a sophisticated nightcap.

This plush bar calls the Warwick Melrose Hotel home and hosts a weekend ½ price wine and cocktail Happy Hour from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on Thursday through Sunday.

The bar recently claimed a prestigious spot on Business Insider’s list of “30 Iconic American Bars,” thanks to their impressive list of signature cocktails, including The Walk Down Melrose Lane and Rosa’s Margarita with Casamigos Anejo Tequila.

Tei Tei Robata Lounge

2906 N Henderson Ave, Dallas, TX 75206
Phone: (214) 828-2400
Visit Website

Tei Tei Robata Lounge brings a taste of Tokyo to Dallas’s Lower Greenville.

It is just a few miles due north on the North Central Expressway of the city’s best attractions, including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the Winspear Opera House.

I recommend making a reservation to experience their extensive list of Japanese spirits magically mixed into stunning cocktails, including my favorite, the Peachy Lychee.

They also boast an impressive lineup of wines, beer, and sake with tasting notes on the menu.

Jalisco Norte

3858 Oak Lawn Ave #470, Dallas, TX 75219
Phone: (214) 443-5183
Visit Website

For a north-of-the-border experience just as vibrant and colorful as Mexico, head to Jalisco Norte for an order of Queso Fundido and your pick of incredible cocktails and margaritas.

Every drink on the menu is carefully crafted and features imported spirits.

I love sipping on their Ranch Water cócteles in the summertime, particularly the Early Riser with Casamigos Blanco tequila, lime juice, tamarind-hibiscus, and bubbly Topo Chico.

Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.

In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
