Margarita meets Moscow Mule? Only in Texas.
Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. But other times, you’re overdue to try something new. So next time you’re up for a change from your usual watering hole, head somewhere you haven’t been before. Don’t worry, we’ve done all the research for you. Here’s our booze-filled roundup of great new spots to drink in and around Dallas.
It’s new. It’s hip. It’s filled with Texas-themed cocktails like the Mustang Morning Shooter and Longhorn Libation. Plus, the view of the Harwood District is gorgeous.

VARSITY TAVERN FT. WORTH
Channel your inner frat bro and head to Fort Worth to check out the coolest and newest sports bar filled with games for big kids to enjoy, like oversized Jenga and giant beer pong (played with trash cans instead of cups). Insider tip: Head up to the rooftop patio for a great view.
1005 Norwood St., Fort Worth; 817-882-6699 or varsitytavern.com
For some, it’s the former spot of Boxwood. And for those of us who’ve been around a little longer, it’s where TABC used to be. Either way, it’s now a great new bar with some interesting cocktails. Try the frozen raspberry Moscow Mule, an Uptown Dallas play on both a margarita and a classic Moscow Mule.

Lake Highlands just got cooler with the opening of Oak Highlands Brewery. This place features really great craft beer--the DFDub and Allgood are well-noted brews--and a family-friendly taproom.
