Dallas' 10 Best Bars For Drinking
The last bar list I put together was all about food. But if you've finished up your dinner or ate an entire hot mess for lunch, you don't always need a bar that serves up a great burger. Sometimes you just want a drink. Sometimes you just want several.
- The 10 Bars Serving the Best Bar Food in Dallas
If you're out on your own, looking to meet someone new or hanging out with a few fiends, all of these bars will all get you tilted in good fashion. Whether you're looking for a well-made cocktail or an ice cold beer and a quiet stool, there's something in this list for everyone.

Nick Badovinus is a bar food specialist, but you don't have to be starving to pay this Henderson Avenue spot a visit. The whiskey list at this place is phenomenal, and the bartenders know how to pour a drink. If you get the urge to snack and you don't want to tear into an entire burger, there are peanuts on the tables everywhere.
Black Swan Saloon
You wish it was cold enough for one of these.
Oh, Gabe. There's nothing better than a bartender who knows your drink. Apparently Gabe Sanchez has a hard drive larger than most bartenders in Dallas. Order a cocktail once and it's yours for life. All you have to do is walk through the door and he's already working on it.
The Windmill Lounge
Want a Sazerac without flames, antics and sticker shock? The Windmill Lounge is a bartender's bar. Hardly a night goes by that you can't find one of the city's best mixologists drinking a simple and strong drink on a stool.
If The Windmill Lounge is bartender's bar, The Loon is a drinker's bar of the highest order. Don't come here expecting involved mixology. This is where you come to get the strongest whiskey and Coke you've ever ordered. Those tacos dorados are pretty good, too.
