1. The Wild Detectives 314 W 8th St, Dallas, TX 75208

Part indie bookstore, part bar, and part cafe, The Wild Detectives in the Bishop Arts District invites you to stop by for an afternoon or evening of curling up with fiction, poetry, and untranslated Spanish literature, while you sip local craft beverages and brews, and snack on Mediterranean-inspired bites. Coffee comes from a roastery in the neighborhood, beer comes from a brewery around the corner, and food includes toasts and cheese boards. You’re encouraged to pair your Spanish novel of choice with a glass of Spanish wine, or your classic literary tome with a craft cocktail, like the Shakespeare Sister.

2. The Lounge here , Dallas, TX

Lounge Here, a swanky neighborhood lounge, focuses on classic cocktails and shareable plates in an atmosphere actually conducive to conversation. The room is undeniably futuristic with its circular ceiling cutouts, multifaceted lamps that resemble molecule models in your high school chemistry class, and powder blue, swiveling barstools. The smooth curves of the smallish room are seductive and will inspire lingering glances, especially as you and your date share delectable small plates of deviled eggs, pimento cheese, and fried chicken confit that falls gracefully off the bone. Cap the night off with cocktails like Lounge Here’s Old Fashioned and the Sage Bramble.
