2. DIP Club 8 Day Club 2645 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75234

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.

3. Hotel ZaZa 2332 Leonard St, Dallas, TX 75201

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.

4. Sisu Uptown 2508 Maple Ave, Dallas, TX 75201

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.

6. W WET Deck 2440 Victory Park Ln, Dallas, TX 75219

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.

7. Bar Belmont 901 Ft Worth Ave, Dallas, TX 75208

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.

9. NYLO Dallas South Side 1325 S Lamar St, Dallas, TX 75215

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.
