Happy Holiday’s y’all!! Even though this year has been a bit interesting the holidays always make things brighter! I’m updating my “Dallas Holiday Guide” for you all with tons of festive spots around the city. I know it’s a little different going out this year with COVID, but all of these places are doing their absolute best to keep everyone safe and still have a good time.
I hope you go out and support your favorite local bars and restaurants! Be sure to check for reservations at any of these places. There are limits to how long you can stay at the restaurants too. I’ll be hitting most of these spots again for round two next week!
DALLAS HOLIDAY EVENT GUIDE 2020
DALLAS HOLIDAY BARS
MIRACLE POP UP BAR @ HG SPLY CO. (next door)
OMG you guys I went to this pop-up bar in Denver last year and it was SO fun! I was thrilled to hear they were bringing it to Dallas this year, and I’ve already gone twice!
MIRACLE ON COMMERCE @ THE ADOLPHUS HOTEL
LEELA’S WINE BAR
Just because it’s festive and I love wine 🙂 But, their old fashioned with wine is now my new favorite holiday drink here. Just try it…I promise.
GOOD COMPANIONS “TIPSY ELF”
Okay the decorations are for sure the BEST out of any holiday bar this year! Also, the mulled wine was super tasty.
Always a good spot! They’ve turned the upstairs bar into a Winter Wonderland theme.
I’m soooo excited to eat here this week! It’s a new cocktaileria that just opened in Deep Ellum. They’ve figured out a way to make it snow too!
WHERE TO EAT
Also, a requirement on my list to go at least 2 times during the holidays! They have the cutes sign on the side street wall where I always take a picture with our friends each year.
MONKEY BAR AT MI COCINA
(Upstairs @ Highland Park Village)
It’s super small, but it’s so worth it for an amazing view of Highland Park Village lights! Just go early or on a weekday. I have a requirement to go at least 2 times during the season.
We had our Dallas blogger holiday here last year and it was delish!
RISE NO 1
Great for a dinner with family because soufflé’s are soooo good!
WHAT TO SEE
HIGHLAND PARK VILLAGE
My absolute favorite place in Dallas during the holidays! The lights are seriously the best in town. Just go take a stroll or book a carriage ride through the neighborhood. I’ve never been on a carriage ride, and keep saying the guy that takes me on one I’m going to marry…
DALLAS ARBORETUM 12-DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
So much fun to stroll through with hot cocoa! I went on a date one year and it was such a great idea for something to do besides grab drinks.
DRIVE IN MOVIE AT ROOFTOP CINEMA CLUB
Tons of holiday movies showing every night!
BISHOP ARTS DISTRICT
Just walking around the area is my absolute favorite thing! Don’t miss taking a picture under the “Merry Christmas You Filthy Animal” sign.
