The Sova Hotel opened last year, providing travelers with small but comfortable rooms, perfect for nights out in Downtown and Deep Ellum. There’s also a secret bar. Ask the front desk for keys to “room 520,” which isn’t a guest room but a cocktail bar hidden in plain sight. Once inside, you’ll find drinks with Japanese accents, like the Nanzen-Ji with sake, mint, and citrus, or the Gion with smoke-infused Japanese whisky, Campari, and bitters.
How to book: Reserve via Yelp.
