Planning to be in Dallas over the holidays and looking for a spot to drink and celebrate with friends? Head on over to The Grapevine Bar. It's difficult to describe this local watering hole. The one word that would sum it all up is "inclusive," which is why it's a great place to catch up with old friends from all walks of life. This non-pretentious spot has a lot of everything there - an eclectic crowd (conservative older patrons, gay and straight patrons, club kids, etc.), heaters on the patio, cozy furniture, a pool table and a jukebox that plays MP3s. It has a laid back vibe in which you can keep your conversation to your table only or mingle with the other patrons - a luxury in the Dallas party scene.

You can park in the small lot behind the bar or on the street. The Grapevine is located between the Uptown and Oak Lawn neighborhoods, so it's close to all the best restaurants and hotels in Big D. Whether you're looking for a great spot to begin or end an evening out on the town, or even want to spend the entire night there, The Grapevine is one of Dallas' hidden gems.
