Ten Bells Tavern – I went here on trivia night, but it’s got a cool outdoor patio for drinks in Bishop Arts District
Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum – I’m OBSESSED with this BBQ place. Go here and get the “hot mess”. Everything is awesome and they pour great beer as well.
Black Swan Saloon – Great to stop here for a night cap after eating and drinking at the Pecan Lodge. There isn’t a sign so just walk in the door.
The Rustic – AWESOME outdoor and indoor venue, but I especially love the outside with live music! They also have great beer and food.
Emporium Pies – Located in Bishop Arts District. Get the Drunken Nut!
Lockhart Smokehouse – Voted best BBQ in Dallas and it’s incredible. It was an experience like nothing I’ve ever had. I even had to ask the waitress how to eat my meal! Highly recommend it!
If you’re in Texas and feel like doing a Texan roadtrip, Austin is only about 3 1/2 hours from Dallas! I rented a car and drove from Dallas to Austin. If you do this, be sure to stop at The Little Czech Bakery on the way and get some kolaches!
That’s how Dallas won me over and why I love visiting. Have you been? Anything I need to do next time I’m there?
