    Looks like a dive bar but the bartenders are cocktail experts! Just tell them what you like and they'll make you something amazing.

    How often do you see watermelon, get the watermelon with mint...it doesn't officially have a name but the bartender will know and it's a stiff drink that hits the spot.

    This is one of my favorite cocktail dives in America. Most of the drinks don't even have a name, true masters at work behind the bar creating blends based on your taste in spirits.

    One of a handful of places you can order an old fashioned and get an old fashioned done right. One of even fewer places I trust the bartender enough to say "I like whiskey, surprise me."

    You will never see this place unless you are looking for it. No signs on the outside. Drinks are spectacular and everyone behind the bar is friendly and hardworking. Get something exotic with fruits

    If you show up too late on a weekend night to this Deep Ellum haunt, you won't get in. The drinks are so good here guests don't leave.

    On my list of Best Mixology Cocktail Bars in Dallas! To get an amazing drink you must find Gabe, the owner/mixologist, then simply tell him what flavors you like. He will take it from there.

    One of the few places in Deep Ellum to drink like a grown up. My vote...Ford's gin rocks with Little Walter on the hi-fi. Plus, Gabe's the best bartender in Texas.

    Barman and owner Gabe Sanchez will always remember your drink, just tell him what you like and he'll mix you a tasty drink, from a jasmine tea-infused vodka cocktail to a pumpkin pie-esque rum drink.

    Try all the infused liquor on their own, then get creative and mix & match to make your own flavors. The possibilities are endless with the alchemists they have behind the bar.
