Shake Things Up at the Best Mixology Bars in Dallas

Though cocktails have long been a staple of the American bar scene, they seem to be gaining even more ground in popularity over the last couple of years. Classic pairings are always a hit, but the new trend seems to be crafting drinks with unusual pairings and ingredients. There are some fantastic cocktail bars that elevate this art near The Vista Dallas. Here are the best places to explore near these Downtown Dallas apartments:

The Mitchell

Open since 2016, The Mitchell has created quite a following in the Downtown Dallas area. At first glance, The Mitchell comes across as an upscale spot while in reality, it has the vibe of a great neighborhood watering hole. The decor of chandeliers mixed with rustic exposed brick is inviting and whimsical. While the menu includes high-end small bites, the cocktails steal the show with innovative drinks such as the Claudia Cardinale, The Third Man, and Rhapsody in Blue.


With a nod toward the bars from the early 20th century, Parliament has a vintage approach to a cocktail bar. Offering a sophisticated feel with plush furnishings, this hip bar has one of the best cocktail programs in all of Dallas. There are over 100 drink options to choose from with everything from the refined Barrel Aged Old Fashioned to the creamy Ramos Gin Fizz.

Midnight Rambler

Located within the swanky The Joule hotel, Midnight Rambler bills itself as a “craft cocktail salon.” Tucked away on the lower level of the building, Midnight Rambler has a definite speakeasy feel with soft lighting and clandestine atmosphere. The retro menu features a variety of choices including creative libations like the Shark Fishing With Machine Guns, the Chainmail Wetsuit, and the Mixing Business With Leather.

Offering the best in urban living, The Vista Dallas puts great cocktail bars like these right at your doorstep. Please contact us to learn more and to schedule a tour.
