Traditionally, hotel bars have been used as a refuge for weary travelers looking for a quiet place to enjoy a drink. In recent years, however, hotel bars have made a name for themselves as a place for locals to explore with fun cocktails, an eclectic vibe, and live entertainment. Hotel bars around the country are finding ways to differentiate themselves to attract not only hotel guests but also local residents.
Texas is home to some great hotel bars that offer the perfect place to meet friends and enjoy a drink before or after dinner. Here are a few worth trying near our Dallas apartments:
Located in the Oak Cliff neighborhood in the historic Belmont Hotel, BarBelmont is one of Dallas's most popular hotel bars. The mid-century modern vibe of the hotel extends to the BarBelmont, giving it a cool, laid-back atmosphere. With incredible city views from its hillside perch, Bar Belmont is not just a great place to grab a drink, it also offers special events such as live music and art exhibits on its spacious patio overlooking the pool.
The Library Bar
Making its home in one of the city's most majestic hotels, the Warwick-Melrose Dallas, The Library Bar is a classic hotel bar full of character. With bookcases and a baby grand piano, The Library Bar is old-school without being stuffy. An extensive cocktail menu is filled with traditional favorites as well as an array of beer and wine. Live entertainment is provided most nights, making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a great drink and small plates.
The Rattlesnake Bar
Few would think that the upscale Ritz-Carlton would house such a raucous sounding bar, but indeed The Rattlesnake Bar does call this hotel home. As one of Dallas' favored hotel bars, The Rattlesnake Bar is a lively hotspot with a distinctive Western-inspired decor with dark wood paneled walls and soft leather furniture. Often crowded with a mix of everyone from the Dallas socialite to the young, after-work crowd, The Rattlesnake Bar makes for great people watching while enjoying a delicious Dean's Margarita.
