Skip: Reunion Tower
Instead visit: NYLO Hotel SODA Bar
After waiting for a reservation and dropping hundreds of dollars for a single meal, sitting atop Reunion Tower eating dinner isn’t going to suffice for the best view of Dallas or the best experience you can have looking at our beautiful skyline.
So, head down to the Cedars and find the NYLO hotel. Its rooftop bar gives the FULL view of downtown, serves fairly priced drinks, and comes with an infinite pool for the heat and a fire pit for when it gets cold. You’ll be helping your wallet exponentially. You could probably book a room at the NYLO, too, and spend the same amount of money that you would have at Reunion Tower.
Instead visit: Ten Bells Tavern
When family and friends come to visit on the weekends, it’s only a right of passage to brunch. In Dallas, coming to the Bishop Arts District has become that destination to end your week and begin the next. But if you’re going to do brunch right, you’ll have to avoid the long waits and make sure the day drinks are cheap.
Ten Bells Tavern is that spot. It has $3 Bloody Marys, screwdrivers, and mimosas, and even $10 mimosa carafes from 11am until 3pm. The chicken and waffles may even be the reason that Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles filed for bankruptcy recently. It’s just that good!
