These Dallas Patios are Where Everyone will be Hanging out this Summer

Originally posted on CultureMap.com.

If there's one thing Dallasites love, it's a patio. That insatiable desire to sit outside can be fulfilled in the HARWOOD District, where the patios are as unique as each restaurant and its cuisine.

The buzz for Happiest Hour is stronger than ever, with it snagging a nomination for best bar in the 2017 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards. The hot spot made headlines when it opened in 2015, mainly for its two-deck, indoor-outdoor, 12,000-square-foot patio and the killer downtown views from the rooftop. The lower deck has gigantic ceiling fans to keep the breezes constant, and garage doors that can roll up to open the indoor dining space to the patio. To ensure that you never have to wait long for Frozé or a pint, there are four bars total, including the tiniest bar in HARWOOD, measuring only 295 square feet. It sits on the lawn and serves the crowds that gather to play garden games, along with the influx of concert-goers or sports fans headed to or coming from the nearby American Airlines Center.

If lawn games are really your thing, then The Grove at Harwood is your go-to hangout. This "ultimate urban backyard" is all outdoors with picnic tables, hammocks, and plenty of lawn space for BYOB (bring your own blanket). The onsite taco truck takes care of any rumbling tummies, while the adult snow cones can cool you off in a flash. There are bocce ball and volleyball courts aplenty, and four-legged friends are more than welcome. In fact, all of the HARWOOD District patios are dog-friendly, so feel free to bring Fido along when you want to kick back, al fresco style.

When you're craving vitamin D but aren't in full activity mode, Magnolias: Sous Le Pont is the ideal compromise. The relaxed coffee shop opens all its doors during nice weather, linking to indoors to the sidewalk cafe seating (where — you guessed it — pups can hang out). Its bright turquoise walls and cascade of blooming flowers were made for Instagram, and create a lovely evening backdrop for the monthly Late Night Open Mic series, held from 5:30-8 pm on the last Thursday of every month.

You'll also find live music at Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar, which hosts live music on the patio every Sunday during brunch and on Wednesday and Thursday nights from 7-10 pm. Saint Ann has long been considered one of the prettiest patios in Dallas, and its recent upgrades have only further cemented its status. A retractable roof makes the patio climate-controlled, meaning that diners can now enjoy the garden views no matter the weather. The building itself has been standing for 90 years, with the Our Lady of Guadalupe mural commemorating its history as the city's first school for Hispanic children. But Saint Ann is firmly in the now, having just introduced a new menu and rolling out an array of wine flights.

Mercat Bistro is also enjoying its new patio, dubbed the Rococo Pavilion. The Baroque-style seating area matches the restaurant's quaint European vibe, and provides shade while remaining open-air on all sides. Sip a glass of wine at twilight or during a light rain, and it's easy to imagine you're people-watching in Paris.

The patio at Dolce Riviera also has a European flair, thanks to the impressively large, 18th-century Venetian terra cotta pots that dot the landscape. Walls of leafy palm trees shield you from the real world outside, while bubbling fountains delicately drown out the sounds of the city. In nice weather, the dining room's glass walls are opened and the glamorous bar offers outdoor seating.

And perhaps the area's largest patio is Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, with its 1.5 acres and 8,265-square-foot pond. The popular event space is open to the public when it's not hosting a party (such as the recent opening night bash for Savor Dallas), so claim it as your secret escape from everyday life. There are plenty of private nooks for quiet reflection, or let the epic soundtrack that plays gently in the background inspire a victory with the larger-than-life chess set. Its two restaurants — one grab-and-go, one elegantly sit-down — are open for breakfast and lunch too.

And don't forget about the DJ Brunch Series: the beats-and-bubbly event rotates through participating HARWOOD District restaurant patios from noon-3 pm every Saturday through July.

With Harwood No. 10 on the horizon comes La Rue Perdue, a pedestrian passageway that connects to the neighboring building. The charming side street of shops and restaurants will include one more important addition: more patios.

Marvel at the Cool New Buildings Helping to Shape Dallas

Paying homage to an area’s history while boldly shaping its future is something that’s incredibly hard to pull off — unless you’re talking about the HARWOOD District.

There are important nods to Dallas’ past scattered throughout these 18 city blocks, the most recognizable being the mural outside Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar and the eatery’s building itself, which was built in 1927 as the city’s first school for Hispanic children.

On the second floor is The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection, which houses the world’s largest collection of samurai armor and objects outside of Japan. The museum, which has free admission, is so renowned that even couture design house Hermès used it as inspiration for its latest scarf collection. You can also spot pieces from the collection in the lobbies of each of the HARWOOD District buildings.

There are also groundbreaking new buildings going up from developer Harwood International which will contribute to the HARWOOD District’s lasting impact on Dallas as a whole.

HDF architects has had a lot to do with giving the HARWOOD District its many distinctive looks. The award-winning, in-house firm is behind the intimate Parisian setting of Mercat Bistro, the chic and relaxed atmosphere of Magnolias: Sous Le Pont, and the massively welcome vibe projected by Happiest Hour.

The architecture and design firm partners with international architects to help shape the district, including some of its most high-profile upcoming structures: Bleu Ciel, Harwood No. 10, and the new Rolex building.

Designed in collaboration with Paris-based Jean-Michel Wilmotte (who designed the Musée d’Orsay), the luxury condo tower Bleu Ciel will redefine the Dallas skyline with its floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sweeping terraces. Curated garden environments designed by world-renowned landscape architect Sadafumi Uchiyama will add to the resort-like ambiance.

The same firm selected to design the stadium for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo is also a partner on the new Rolex Building. Kengo Kuma & Associates and HDF crafted a seven-story building with 56,422 square feet of office spaces. World-renowned landscape architect Sadafumi Uchiyama has included a Japanese-inspired tiered garden featuring rampart stone walls at the base of the building, with reflecting pools and cascading waterfalls spilling over the sides. A motor court is nestled within the gardens and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks tie the site to the gardens of Saint Ann Court.

Harwood No. 10 will also create a new kind of high-rise by exploring the relationship between interior space and the outdoors, and will be designed 100-percent in-house. The 22 stories of office, retail, and restaurant space will be broken up by outdoor terraces, redefining the typical “box” space. On the 10th floor will be a 12,000-square-foot garden and fitness pavilion, including a squash court and golf simulator. A pedestrian passageway dividing this building from its neighbor will be transformed into La Rue Perdue, a charming side street of shops, restaurants, and patios.

So next time you’re in the HARWOOD District, stop and take a good look around — soon, it’s going to look even better.

8 Stress Relieving Stretches You Can Do at Your Desk

By Special Guest Mai Lyn Ngo, founder of DeepFriedFit.com

For many that work in an office, it's easy to forget to get up and move. Having worked in a corporate setting, it's crazy how hours can fly by, hunched over a keyboard while trying to meet deadlines, answer emails, and finish projects without so much as a bathroom break. Sound familiar?

Regardless of pressing deadlines, taking a few minutes for yourself throughout the day can improve your concentration, mood, and lessen stress. I worked with Cubefit Yoga, a corporate yoga company, to show you 8 simple stress relieving stretches you can do at your desk. And guess what? It's actually yoga! Anyone of any age, fitness levels, and experience can do it. Bendy pretzel bodies not required.

4 Moves You Can Do While Seated

You can do all of these seated poses in sequence or one or two when the mood strikes. They can all be done at your desk and don't require any equipment or even a change of clothes. While the moves may look simple, they do a whole lot of good for the body.

4 MOVES YOU CAN DO STANDING

As a tenant in the HARWOOD District, you can also take these stretches to one of the many gardens throughout the neighborhood or to the gym! Hope you took away some great tips from this post. Trying any of these stretches will hopefully bring awareness to your body and how stiff it can feel after sitting for long periods of time. You only have one body, so show it some love.

Eat your way through the restaurants of Dallas' HARWOOD District

Originally posted on CultureMap.com.

It's true that Dallasites love to eat out more than most, so it's also lucky that the city is home to many truly amazing restaurants. In the HARWOOD District alone, there are seven unique spots that are dishing out everything from a quick nibble to a multi-course gourmet meal.

Read on to learn about the fantastic dining options at HARWOOD, but be warned if you're doing so on an empty stomach.

Dolce Riviera
Cuisine: Coastal Italian
The vibe: Inspired by Italy's Cote d'Azur, this upscale new eatery has glamorous la dolce vita-era touches and most of the decor is imported from France and Italy. That's both inside the soothing dining room and enchanting lounge — which are dressed in ombre ocean tones and studded with seafaring antiques — and outside on the patio, which is surrounded by waving palm trees and rippling fountains.
What to order: Seafood is an obvious menu standout (the Branzino Alla Griglia and Tonno al Sesamo, especially), but don't overlook the pastas. They are all made in-house in the special pasta room that was built into the restaurant's design.
In-the-know info: The impressive wine display wall isn't just for show. Many rare and impeccable wines populate the wine list, and a selection of authentic aperitifs will prep you for the meal ahead.

Mercat Bistro
Cuisine: Contemporary European
The vibe: Like being in a Parisian cafe, complete with the vintage light fixtures, intimate tables, and sense of history. Sit in the newly added Rococo Pavilion to enjoy people-watching outside while remaining sheltered from the weather. There's live music twice a week, as guitarist Joel Pipkin strums everything from jazz to flamenco.
What to order: During the day, this is the neighborhood's go-to spot for fresh pastries (made in-house), creamy quiches, and sophisticated salads, along with carefully crafted coffees. At night, things get a little more decadent with a chic cocktail menu (try the Rose Gold & Bubbles) and a Monday-Wednesday specialty you won't want to miss: tagliatelle pasta flamed tableside in a cheese wheel.
In-the-know info: Order coffee or tea prepared in the Syphon, an antique-looking contraption that uses science to heat and steep the drink perfectly while also putting on a show for the table.

Happiest Hour
Cuisine: Burgers and beer
The vibe: Happiest Hour is officially the busiest bar in Texas (the sheer number of credit card transactions serves as proof), but it's laid out to feel anything but crowded. The numerous patios and decks afford some of the best views in Dallas, with three huge bars serving the multiple floors. Outside you'll find the fourth bar, which is adorably one of the smallest in Dallas and serves the young professionals, concert-goers, and sports fans that have spilled out onto the lawn.
What to order: The stacked burgers are wonderfully over the top and pair perfectly with the loaded cheddar waffle fries, but there are also lighter options such as salads, fish tacos, and lettuce wraps on the menu. More than 50 beers are on tap, along with a few wines, and don't forget about #ButFirstBrunch on the weekends.
In-the-know info: Get your 'Gram ready. Besides the stunning views out over downtown, there are several places inside, such as the light bulb sign and the massive concrete hideaway booths, where you will definitely want to stop, pose, and tag.

The Grove at Harwood
Cuisine: Craft tacos and boozy snow cones
The vibe: It's like hanging out in your own backyard, if your yard also had a taco truck, volleyball and bocce ball courts, hammocks, a bar, and was full of attractive people.
What to order: Tacos. Obviously. You may remember seeing the bright red Taco Truck touring through the HARWOOD District last summer or parked at the Dallas Arts District's Fall Block Party, but once the weather warms it's parked at The Grove, serving up the ideal portable snack. There are also more than 10 different kinds of adult snow cones (another round of Drunken Smurfs, anyone?).
In-the-know info: Dogs are absolutely welcome as long as they are leashed and you pick up after them.

Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar
Cuisine: Southwest-inspired American
The vibe: The building is a historic Dallas landmark, having opened in 1927 as the city's first school for Hispanic children. You can celebrate the 90-year-old building by admiring the Our Lady of Guadalupe mural outside and the original foundation that's preserved under the glass floor. The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum houses an impressive collection of samurai armor and artifacts upstairs, and admission is free. And don't forget about that patio, which many insist offers the best garden setting in Dallas.
What to order: The 12-Hour Cochinita — crispy pork belly with pickled pineapple-radish salad and black bean sauce — and the explosion of color and flavor that is the Southwestern Salad.
In-the-know info: The Samurai Cocktail is inspired by the museum upstairs, and mixes Woodford Reserve bourbon whiskey, blood orange, and bitters. Sip it while enjoying the live music that plays three times a week or take your cocktail upstairs for the after-hours cocktail tour at the Samurai Collection.

Magnolias: Sous Le Pont
Cuisine: Elevated coffee shop
The vibe: Bring a laptop, coworker, friend, good book — the relaxed cafe is popular both for getting a little work done and simply enjoying the fun and funky baristas' latest creations. 
What to order: Just like you never know which of Dallas' top creatives you'll see sipping a latte beneath Ro2 Art's latest installation, the beverage menu at Magnolias is always changing. The friendly staff flexes their artistic muscles by inventing delicious coffee drinks, all of which complement the takeaway selection of sandwiches, juices, and local chocolates.
In-the-know info: Browse boutique retail goods such as vegan leather clutches and artisan soaps, which only add to the organic, grassroots feel of the place. Order extra caffeine for the new Late Night Open Mic series, which puts undiscovered talents in the spotlight from 5:30-8 pm on the last Thursday of every month.

Marie Gabrielle Restaurant & Gardens
Cuisine: Casual American + fine dining
The vibe: Long a sought-after event venue, Marie Gabrielle has now opened its sculpted gardens to the public for two different dining experiences. The grab-and-go side feeds hundreds of hungry professionals who office nearby, while the elegant sit-down restaurant is all white tablecloths and flattering lighting. But both sides get to enjoy the gardens, water features, and epic instrumental music that pours out of the hidden speakers.
What to order: Depends on which experience you're after. Many an office power lunch has been greatly improved by the Cajun shrimp with cheesy grits or the build-your-own sandwich and salad bar on the to-go side, while the seared Atlantic salmon or hazelnut chicken pairs especially well with a glass of wine for a fancy midday meal in the fine dining area.
In-the-know info: The fine dining restaurant is still often rented out for private events, so be sure to call ahead to ensure reservations. The more casual eatery rotates daily and weekly specials for soup, pizza, and entrees — check the website to get the most up-to-date offerings.

5 Healthy Lifestyle Habits To Boost Your Travel Routine

5 Healthy Lifestyle Habits To Boost Your Travel Routine

Given that Dallas is showered in sunshine two-thirds of the year, my desire to escape has subsided greatly since moving back to Texas from London, but my travel habits and my love for traveling are forever ingrained. Rather than wreaking havoc on our health and beauty routines while on the road, here are five habits to revive the "lock-and-leave" lifestyle:


Habit 1: Hit the Ground Running

One of the quickest ways to help lessen the negative effects of traveling is to get outdoors for a 20-minute sprint or speed walk. Whether those 20-minutes become an hour or an afternoon, walking or jogging at a moderate pace helps keep muscles toned, joints loosened, self-esteem rising, and the aging process slowing. It also brightens your skin and helps your mind clear. Personally, I enjoy listening to podcasts or audiobooks during the trek, before turning the volume down for at least part of the outing to soak up a little more nature or the sounds of a new city. Sometimes it takes the entire taxi ride to convince myself to stick to the plan, but I can't say I ever regret dropping my bags and throwing on my workout gear on either the home or the away end of travel. 


Habit 2: Gnaw on Raw Snacks

Raw, unprocessed foods are packed with enzymes, vitamins and minerals which help keep your immune levels strong and your energy levels high. Chopping and freezing any leftover produce into smoothie-portioned packages prior to traveling makes for a quick, healthy, blendable treat when you return home. If you find yourself on an extended getaway, pack or pick up a few lemons for the road and sip warm (or iced, depending on the climate) lemon water morning and evening to help clear the toxins of traveling and make sure to take a reusable water bottle. Many stores now sell 100% squeezed lemon juice which can be taken on board your aircraft in a 100ml vial, although keep in mind that lemon juice should be kept cold once opened so perhaps you'll want to make your mix straight after going through security. If you're going to be in town a few days, seek out the nearest produce markets and stock up on local, seasonal grains, fruits and/or vegetables for snacking, rather than turning to sugary bars or the lure of the mini-bar. Or consider booking a produce delivery online. Finally, cooking lessons offer a way to learn the local cuisine while inspiring new techniques to take back home - a delightful souvenir that can help introduce new ideas and ingredients into your regime. 
 
Habit 3: Mile-high Detox

A smoothie on the way to the airport and a large, empty water bottle are all you need for a fantastic mini-detox. Leave your weaknesses on the ground and try to resist onboard snacks at all cost. Seize the rare chance to spend time offline - reading, writing and/or sleeping. Grab a book from home and let it consume you onboard rather than staring at your usual devices. If you expect any chance of getting hangry while on board the aircraft, try packing seed mixes, nut butter sachets, or dried fruit and vegetables that travel easily whilst helping satiate hunger. Look for options with low-sodium, which will help support hydration at high altitude. Freshly peeled oranges offer your senses a nice refresh from stale aircraft scents. But most importantly, stay hydrated. It's estimated that plastic cups stay on the earth 450 years on average, and yet they serve a far smaller portion of water than is necessary to keep your mind, skin, and organs feeling rejuvenated. So, BYOB and fill up before boarding. If you're not a fan of fountains, a friendly barista should be able to help. And if you're a person who craves flavor, add a few slices of cucumber and/or mint at home, or skip the coffee lines and opt for iced tea at a local restaurant for an antioxidant boost to boot. 

Habit 4: Go Clubbing

I'm referring to fitness clubs here, but even nightclub dancing qualifies on both the anonymity and calorie burning elements of the mission. Where better to take a lesson in something totally new, such as surfing or dancing, than a place where no one knows you? If you know or meet anyone who's into the local sport or fitness scene, meet up for a class, a game or even a stroll in lieu of, or in addition to, the usual drinks or meal. When visiting new cities, I typically checkout local studios ahead of time to see what trial-based passes or packages are available, and in cities such as New York, I often end up booking hotels near my favorite studios to increase my chance of visiting them. Visiting innovative classes and scenic jogging trails outside our home city is one of my favorite ways to dive into local culture while keeping my cardio routine rolling. Whether you catch the start or the end of those AM hours for whichever style of clubbing you choose, a little power nap will serve you well. 

 
Habit 5: Opt Outside


Breathe in fresh air and bright daylight whenever possible. Booking hotels within walking distance of activities and planning active transportation to local hot spots ahead of time adds a layer of adventure to any journey. If traveling in a group, volunteer activities or restaurants that suit your taste. If you have free time while you're away, seek out bike tours, walking trails, bikes to hire and other sporty ways to trek the city. Ask around for good places to catch the sunrise or sunset. Prioritize local parks and/or river strolls on your sightseeing list for the chance to immerse in nature. Be on the lookout for outdoor patios or seek out picnic space and bring your own nibbles and beverages. The opportunity to take public transportation or shared ride services will still stand if the weather objects. Whether at home or away, planning around a few healthy pillars helps me savor and enjoy the indulgences, rather than just plowing right through them.

Wellness is far more simple than we make it. For those whose habits are deeply instilled, travel days force a change in routine, for better or for worse. So, next time you pack up, on either end of your journey, take a fresh assessment of what it is that truly keeps you nourished, take it with you, and leave the rest behind. Salud... and Bon Voyage!
