SALT is an upscale pool lounge with an adjoining private restaurant/bar called The Bungalow and -- you guessed it -- a saltwater centerpiece for you to swim in.
DIP is the sunny daytime answer to Club 8's nocturnal celebrations. A 7,000sqft pool area complemented by cabanas, day beds, DJs, and bottle service mean that you won't ever have to pause in your partying.
Hotel ZaZa is the swanky sort of spot where you might run into a celebrity -- but you'll definitely run into a sweet pool, where you can get down on brunch, sip some cocktails, or just lounge around in the sunshine.
Shoring up Uptown nightlife, this adult playground's set in a 5Ksqft house complete with a living room setup, a lounge-y den, and a palm tree-accented, cabana-equipped saltwater pool. Edibles stretch from not-from-the-pool mesquite-grilled lobster w/ blood orange vinaigrette, to a 28-day dry-aged ribeye served with crispy spinach, white cheddar horseradish mashed potatoes, and moneybutter, which also goes great over Billy Beanes.
A group meeting house with shuffleboard, darts nights and dinner each once a week, and an olympic-sized pool (!).
The WET Deck is a 16th floor pool in a glass enclosure that allows you to view the Dallas skyline. If you're not staying at the hotel, don't fret -- hit them up on Wednesdays for "Wine Down" from 6pm to 10pm, and you can get down on half-off wine and listen to live jazz.
Located in the Belmont Hotel, Bar Belmont's got an outdoor terrace with incredible views of the Downtown skyline (as does the hotel's pool!), an EB&D Loaded Up & Truckin Burger (bacon, cheddar, and frittered farm egg), and a Beer (!) Can Farm Chicken with tomatillo chili sauce and pickled green beans.
This hotel sports luxury accomodations and probably the most glamorous of Dallas's rooftop infinity pools, so you can always be sure that you'll lay your eyes on a hot body (of water).
NYLO's third Metroplex hotel, the NYLO Dallas South Side, was built into the 100yr-old Dallas Coffin Co. building, with rooms boasting exposed 10ft ceilings, original concrete floors, and blackout drapes for those mornings you just know you won't want to get up off that concrete floor.
