$$$$ // Knox Henderson // America & Cocktails

Is it one of the most stunning rooftops ever and absolutely gorgeous? Yes. It is also expensive beyond belief and only fitting of Highland Park moms? Also yes. You know it’s bad when the appetizers on the dinner menu are already $20 and then you dread scrolling down further. And french fries for $10? An absolute crime.

However. It still remains one of the prettiest rooftop views in all of Dalla, so it stays on this list. If you’re able to affordable this, please adopt me.

$$ || Lower Greenville || American Restaurant & Bar

One of my favorites! Beautiful upstairs patio with views of downtown, very spacious spot. This is my go-to for larger groups of friends for happy hour (i.e the spot for birthday parties or coworker happy hours) because it’s SO huge and there is lots of room for mingling. And the rooftop view is simply gorgeous!

Happy Hour: Weekdays 3pm – 6pm with $5 cocktails, $3 beers, and $6 wines

$$ || Deep Ellum || Gastropub

I love the beautiful flooring here and the cocktails they have. Also has a secret indoor bar called One Trick Pony that you can hit up in addition to the beautiful rooftop here. But overall a gorgeous rooftop view!

No Happy Hour

$$ || Deep Ellum || Mexican Restaurant

I am actually obsessed with this rooftop it is a DREAAMMMMM. Seriously. Goals. If you love pretty spots you will love this. It’s the most beautiful photo-ready spot, and I especially love that it’s covered so you have plenty of shade in the heat!

Happy Hour: Weekdays 4pm – 6pm with $4 Domestics, $5 Wines, and $6 Margs plus Half Priced Apperitivos

$$ || Deep Ellum || American Restaurant & Bar

Obviously a favorite by many Dallasites and probably a spot you’ve heard of before! BUT did you know their happy hour is actually pretty great. The downstairs of Stirr features a gorgeous dining room, great for groups. But then climb up the stairs and you’ll see the gorgeous rooftop views that Stirr has to offer!

Happy Hour: Weekdays 3pm – 7pm with $4 beers, $5 bites, and $5 cocktails

$$$ || Downtown Dallas || Cocktail Bar

One of the most popular for it’s rooftop and views, great cocktails & events! Great spot for going out at night with your friends, and they have some amazing cocktails you’ll no doubt love.

Happy Hour: Monday – Thursday from 4 PM – 7 PM with $6 bites, $5 pints, and $7 wines by the glass

$ || Uptown Dallas || American Bar

What I love most about Quarter Bar? The incredibly good deals they have! Also, this rooftop is way less crowded and more hidden so you aren’t going to be fighting crowds. They have both an indoor bar and outdoor patio, so you can easily escape the heat. Highly recommend for a post-work happy hour!

Happy Hour: Weekday happy our 3am-7pm with $3 wells and domestics, $5 beers & wines

$$$$ || Medical District || Steakhouse

Known for having one of the best steakhouses in the entirety of Dallas (which can be seen by the price), but also for having one of the best rooftops in Dallas too! Killer views served with killer food, this is perfect if you want a romantic date night spot for a special event on a Dallas rooftop.

Happy Hour: Weekdays 5pm – 6:30pm w/ $2 off beer and cocktails, $8 wine glasses, and 1/2 off wine bottles

$$ || Lower Greenville || Italian Restaurant

With how beautiful this restaurant is and how good the food is, you would expect it to cost a LOT more! I love Terelli’s for their outdoor patio too, which gives me terrace-it-Italy vibes so I am all about it. Another love about this restaurant is it’s gorgeous rooftop bar, which is perfect for a pre-meal cocktail!

Happy Hour: Daily until 7pm with $6 cocktails and wines, and $1 off beers

$$ || Lower Greenville || Organic Food & Brunch

Sundown at Granada is this beautiful farm-to-table restaurant with an incredible interior, and a rooftop on the second floor to match! Perfect is you’re looking for a fully organic meal at a killer spot, and also a favorite of mine for brunch in Dallas.

Happy Hour: Weekdays until 7pm and Sunday 4pm to 10pm with $4 Drafts, $6 Craft Cocktails, & $6 House Wines

$$ || Deep Ellum || Burgers & Margaritas

A hidden gem favorite of mine because it’s so low-key and rarely busy! They have a crazy good happy hour marg deal and a hidden rooftop with misters running to keep you cool. Seriously a good spot if you don’t want to be overwhelmed with crowds since it’s a Dallas rooftop bar hidden gem.

Also home to the Best Burger in Dallas according to D-Magazine!

Happy Hour: Weekdays 4:30pm – 6pm w/ $4 margaritas & 25% off food

$$$$ || Downtown Dallas || Asian Fusion Restaurant

You know that giant ball you see in the Dallas skyline every day? This is the place! Five Sixty is this asian seafood restaurant in the sky, and it has quite the view of downtown. Definitely will cost you a pretty penny, but you can definitely just go for a fab cocktail if you want the view without clearing your bank account!

Happy Hour: Monday – Thursday from 5pm – 7pm with select drinks for $6

$$$ || Downtown Dallas || American Restaurant

Firstly, if you go you should know their steak is absolutely amazing. This spot is so cute for a date night with boo before you hit the town! It has a stunning interior, and then a smaller rooftop patio deck overlooking the Dallas Eye. Less of a skyline view because it’s only on the second floor, but still worth noting!

Happy Hour: Weekdays until 7pm with $8 Cocktails

$$$ || Downtown Dallas || American Restaurant

Holy smokes is this place pretty. Mirador is a downtown American restaurant, another gem with cocktails that is perfect for you and the boo to hit before you hit the town. I absolutely love the views from this place and how stunning the interior is, but I will be honest that the food is overpriced and not spectacular. No patio for being outside, but the floor-to-ceiling windows will take care of getting a killer view without having to be in the Texas heat!

$$ || Plano, Texas || Rooftop Cocktail Bar

Firstly, calling out again this is in PLANO! So not technically a Dallas rooftop bar, but Dallas-area still!

Definitely not around the corner from Downtown Dallas, but perfect for my folks that live a little farther and don’t need the drive. 32 Degree is the perfect rooftop cocktail spot in the burbs to get together with your girls! Located just above Urban Crust in Downtown Plano (also Upper Crust has fab pizza).
