Where to eat and drink outside, even when it’s hot.
There’s no denying that it is absurdly hot in Dallas right now, but that somehow doesn’t keep dedicated drinkers off the city’s numerous patios. Dallas’ patio culture is really like no other city.
Here, getting a drink means enjoying a killer margarita or fancy craft cocktail while sitting underneath misters and enjoying excellent people-watching, catching up with your crew, or (and perhaps most importantly) drinking so many beers that calling an Uber is absolutely required.
Whether in search of a great after-work happy hour or a lazy Sunday in the sun, these 25 excellent patios offer up Dallas’ best al fresco dining. Find a spot in the shade, and just keep trying to remember that cooler temperatures are on the way…eventually.
