Need an excuse to grab your friends and a drink? Check out our pick of places to be and views to see from our Views of Dallas hidden gems list!

We’re dropping these videos once a week. Check again soon to see more!


The iconic Statler Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, and offers one of the best skyline views Dallas has to offer. Want a place to grab a drink and relax at the pool during the day? Want a place to grab a drink and wear your best cocktail attire at night? You can find both of those things at Waterproof, the rooftop pool bar on the 19th floor of the hotel. Fun fact: Llinda Llee Llama lives here…can you spot her statue?


Staying in the Dallas Region, but making a small trip to Plano’s popular Legacy Hall. With over 24 food stalls run by local chefs and aspiring restauranteurs to satisfy your cravings, you’re bound to find a bite you like. In the mood to drink? There’s everything from cocktail bars to wine bars, including an award-winning craft brewery. Did we mention there’s also live music and sporting events here, AND free parking? We are already on our way.


In the heart of Lowest Greenville (yes, even lower than Lower Greenville) is HG Sply Co., one of our favorite places to sit with friends and enjoy the beautiful Dallas skyline. (Not going to lie – their Fort Worth location isn’t too bad, either!) HG tells their beginning as “four regular guys wanted a spot to gather, tell big stories, enjoy a good drink and celebrate their victories.” See for yourself how they achieved that perfectly. Great news: you can eat here during DFW Restaurant Week 2019!


We joined in the artsy crowd in Deep Ellum for evening drinks and bites at HARLOWE MXM. If the downstairs ambience didn’t already win you over, the view upstairs definitely will…and so will the food and drinks. The cherry on top for us was their weekly live music lineup, setting the vibe for the evening and then into the night for those willing to stay up.


Yes, you can go here for more than just a movie. Please watch the previews above while waiting for this video to premiere.


Another feature-worthy spot: a place in Arlington that you can eat and drink before, during, or after a game at the nearby stadiums. Stay tuned for this video!
