You don’t have to have friends who live in Dallas to be able to enjoy a good backyard beer. Head to Katy Trail Ice House, a popular local destination that bills itself as an “Austin style beer garden.” Claim a picnic table when you arrive and settle in for the duration to try local Texas brews (the bar boasts 50 beers on tap), enjoy country music piping through the speakers, and indulge in a little people watching (the bar attracts a great Dallas crowd and overlooks the Katy Trail running and bike path). Summer in Texas never looked so good!
Uptown Dallas was one of the first neighborhoods to undergo a major revitalization that helped turn the city—and especially the downtown area—into a cultural hotspot. It’s now one of the city’s premier destinations for trendy nightlife, fine dining, and high-end shopping, particularly for the high-rolling and well-heeled yuppie set.
