The Adolphus-- While I absolutely love The Adolphus year round, it is particularly magical this time of year. Between the cozy lobby lounge area, and the exquisite French Room, there are numerous spots to warm up and enjoy a carefully created cocktail.
Atwater Alley-- This secret speakeasy by Henry's Majestic is the perfect drink date spot or post-dinner move. Head upstairs to lounge by the fireplace and sip on a personalized concoction-- they will NOT disappoint!
The Omni- The Omni's Pegasus Bar is SUPER cozy, perfect for warming up after an evening strolling around Downtown among the beautiful lights. The Omni is also home to some great decor for snagging photos beforehand-- you can't miss the big ornaments!
Others: The Mansion Bar, Bowen House, Kennedy Room, Veritas Wine Room
Honor Bar-- Think that patio season is over just because the cold's coming in? Think again! Honor Bar patio has the most adorable fireplace to grab a drink by. And the lights are up in Highland Park Village, so the views are STUNNING!
The Henry-- The Henry also has a great fireplace on its patio, big enough for the whole clan to hang by. Great spot before a game/concert at American Airlines, or day-drinking on the weekends.
400Gradi- Head here for date night (or a double date-- there are 4 seats around each fire pit) and cozy up with a bottle of wine and pizza! Looking for something more casual? Grab a glass & snacks at Royal Blue across the street (also has fire pits on the patio).
Smoky Rose-- Check out the 12 Days of Christmas exhibit at The Dallas Arboretum, and then head across the street to Smoky Rose for part 2. They have AMAZING food & drinks, and the atmosphere is so warm
