Where to sip and celebrate.
By Cassidy Najarian |

Plenty of Dallas bars and restaurants are celebrating the Fourth in the best way: with food and drinks. Here’s where to party.

Happiest Hour
This popular spot is kicking off the celebrations this week with their own patriotic cocktail accompanied by music from live DJs. Guests can order the Watermelon Smash, a watermelon vodka drink infused with mint and fresh fruits and garnished with a red, white, and blue popsicle. If cocktails aren’t your thing, PBR tall boys (the beer with the red, white, and blue labeling) will be sold at a discounted price.

The Rustic
Get patriotic and philanthropic with The Rustic’s annual “Drink the Flag” event. During the event, guests who purchase a beer from The Rustic’s iconic “beer flag” can choose to make a donation. All proceeds will benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.

Harlowe MXM
If you’re looking to party all night long, Harlowe MXM has you covered. They will be hosting a rooftop Chillin’ and Grillin’ party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., featuring a lunch and late-night menu with frozen red white, and blue mules and Jell-O shots. This roof is also the perfect location to catch the fair ground fireworks.
