The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
You don't have to be a high-roller to enjoy this fine dining destination. The hotel bar is one of the best places to take a date for a drink. It's a dimly lit and sexy spot with live jazz on Thursdays.

Cock and Bull
This dark East Dallas bar serves up properly poured pints of Guinness alongside some the best burgers and Reuben sandwiches you can buy in Dallas. It's a great neighborhood haunt that's hardly ever packed, but you can always find someone to talk to while sitting at the bar.

Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House
Goodfriend is still kicking out great burgers with some of the best taps in town. Every time I stop in the place the bar is full, and the patio is packed with customers enjoying a solid beer selection. If you're a fan of local breweries, Goodfriend has you covered. If you like beer in general Goodfriend has you covered. Goodfriend is a good friend, indeed.

Who's thirsty?

The fact that Strangeways isn't on this list is simultaneously shitarded and a bit of a relief.

I'm glad you didn't mention my favorite. It's already a hell of a time getting a seat, even on weeknights and especially during Happy Hour.

Good list, still.

@Ashley Richardson Not anymore. The place has changed a lot over the past few months

@monstruss Strangeways isn't on the list because the service is so slow. Each of the bars here have attentive fast bartenders. They make me feel like I'm taken care of.

That said, I love te space at Strangeways though. It's a cool bar

@Gipson I wonder what I missed. I promise not to tell if you let me know.

@scott.reitz Best bars for drinking, yet you don't want to wait in line like everyone else. Basically, it's a list of bars that make you feel like you're special.

@scott.reitz I see your point in the service being a little slower. Personally I don't really mind so much because I know it's just the 4 or 5 folks covering the whole place, and the quality of both the service and the drinks makes up for it.

@looptwelve @scott.reitz this couldn't be further front the truth. Some of these bars know who I am when I patronize. Some do not. I hate when I get special treatment, but I love when I see bartenders hustling to make everyone feel like a special customer
