    The drinks here are ordered by the era in which they were created, from the Aviation during Pre-Prohibition to Vesper Martini from the Repeal era (post prohibition). Read more

    A staple in the craft cocktail scene, the mixologists at Cedars Social change up the menu seasonally, offering cool and crisp in the summer, warm, rich drinks in the winter and everything in between.

    Ambiance & food speak for themselves. Definitely a place worth checking out when in town. Snazzy cocktail menu. For all the single ladies - make your way to the bar and chat with Cullen :)

    Had a great experience! Hosted a party in the backyard. Excellent service from Leif! The chef made a custom pescatarian and gluten-free menu for us. The picky crowd loved the food.

    Nice place. Eclectic. Cool location. Good-looking attentive wait staff. Great views from windows. Music slightly loud than necessary. Great patio firepit. Will try food next time. WORTH PATRONAGE.

    A cocktail adventure every single visit. Honestly, the drink menu is a little bit intimidating, but their knowledgeable staff can always point you in the right direction and make great suggestions.

    Cedars Social also has a great breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. My favorites to nibble on are their eggs benedict, crab cake sliders, roasted asparagus, and deviled eggs (amazing!).

    If you want the best drink you've ever had, ask from the incredible TRINA behind the bar. Fun, gorgeous, and a killer mixologist! You won't be disappointed.

    Reminds me of upscale bars in NY, which is a good thing! Their burger was delicious and the kale salad was wonderful. Great place to chill out.

    The cocktails are small but totally worth the price as they are STRONG and incredibly innovative. They also have a throwback cocktail list ... just don't order a dirty martini.GET THE MOSCOW MULE.

    The mixologists are among the best I’ve ever experienced and pour some of the greatest cocktails made only with the freshest and tastiest ingredients.

    On my list of Best Mixology Cocktail Bars in Dallas! To get an amazing drink simply tell your server or bartender what flavors you like. They will take it from there.

    When ex-NFL players open restaurants and bars, it's usually safe to expect a somewhat dumbed-down concept. Read more

    Go for cocktails, food is good but $$$ not worth a second try. Cocktails also $$$ but very much worth many tries. Relaxed, if rather nondescript, but it's got that certain energy. Just the bar part...
