From cool margaritas before a professional basketball game to delicious pies and antiques spend two days in Dallas and find out what this city has to offer.
Eat Your Way Around Dallas
Brunch is the most important meal of the day, or at least, it is at The Henry. Here, you’ll find handcrafted coffee drinks and delectable dishes that are almost as ornate and elegant as the restaurant itself. If an old-fashioned deli is more your style, Cindi’s has all your reasonably priced options, and they serve breakfast until they close at 2pm. Hit up Maple Leaf Diner for a homestyle Canadian lunch experience, ending with fresh baked pie or their specialty stuffed cookies. For dinner you can’t go wrong with Eataly, an Italian rooftop restaurant that focuses on simple, fresh ingredients over a wood-burning grill.
Tex-Mex is a must-have while in Dallas. Tacos, fajitas and margaritas are a staple for every Texan foodie, but Dallas will always put a unique spin on a well-loved classic. Beto & Son’s Nitro Alchemy Bar brings a wild, table-side twist to the classic margarita – by incorporating liquid nitrogen. Their Liquid Nitrogen Margarita is possibly the coolest margarita in Dallas. Not far away is Musume in the City Center District, serving up incredible sushi plates that will make your account an instant foodstagram. If you're in the mood for some BBQ, Dallas has you covered. Head over to Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum for a spread of brisket, handmade sausage, collard greens, fried okra and some mac 'n cheese. Across the street is Stirr, a Deep Ellum gem for happy hour and sharables.
Experience the Bishop Arts District in Dallas, with over 60 boutiques, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, theaters and art galleries. While you spend the whole day wandering this Dallas neighborhood, check out Emporium Pies to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Watch a Game After Some Fine Art
If you find yourself here during the NBA season, watch a Dallas Mavericks game like a local. The city’s favorite NBA champion team plays at the American Airlines Center, which features good views of the court from every seat. Check out their schedule here.
For even more Dallas culture, tour modern and contemporary sculpture at the beautiful Nasher Sculpture Center. The museum presents works from the Nasher family collection as well as special exhibitions throughout the year, so be sure to check the Nasher Sculpture Center’s website for current exhibitions.
Stay in More Than a Hotel
After a day of fun, where should you stay? Hotel Crescent Court is your best bet for some pristine Dallas lodging. In the heart of downtown, this upscale property is walking distance from museums, dining, shopping and more, but you may not even need to leave. There are four on-site restaurants as well as a coffee shop, a luxury spa and a pool.
Spend a weekend immersing yourself in all that Dallas has to offer – there’s something for everyone – and you’ll wish your trip would never end.
