Tucked away in Downtown Dallas under the Hilton Hotel is a gem that has quickly became one of my FAVORITE Happy Hour spots. Grayson Social opened its doors in 2016 and could easily be missed if you aren’t paying attention.
The drinks here are AMAZING. The bartenders are true alchemist, they spend several minutes making a cocktail, not because they are slow, they are making each drink perfectly. The drinks you buy here are not just mix and alcohol. It’s a combination of flavors, textures, and greatness.
My favorite craft drink on happy hour is the drink pictured. The SMOKED NEGRONI. Made with: The Botanist Gin, Cherrywood Smoke, Campari, Sweet Vermouth, Burlesque Bitters, and Lavender Bitters. This drink is trapped with actual cherrywood smoke, so when you take your first sip you have a campfire taste that awakens you (in the BEST way). If you want an old fashioned with a twist, this would be a good start.
Other crafts you should try: Rose Margarita, Lavender Maker, Lemon Rosetini, and the Campfire.
So next time you find yourself in Downtown Dallas and looking for a drinking experience, check out Grayson Social.
