To compete with one another, hotels in downtown Dallas are opening a plethora of bars and restaurants to attract both locals and tourists.
Six establishments—Scout, R&B, diner Overeasy, rooftop bar Waterproof, Fine China, and cocktail den Bourbon and Banter—were reopened as part of the Statler’s makeover. After extensive renovations, the Adolphus reopened with a gleaming lobby bar, a reimagined French Room, and the restaurants City Hall Bistro and Otto’s, serving high-end coffee in a setting reminiscent of Vienna. If you’re looking for the city’s best cocktail bar, look no farther than the Joule, the undisputed king of trendy downtown hotels, which is home to three eateries and Midnight Rambler. The Sheraton, another downtown hotel, is making an effort to establish itself as a popular spot for eating and drinking.
Maybe you’re not the only one who thinks a Sheraton isn’t the kind of location you’d want to spend your Saturday night on purpose. A press release claims that the “biggest hotel in downtown Dallas” is undergoing extensive renovations, among them the addition of five new restaurant and drink concepts, of which three are already operational.
Open Palette is more than simply a restaurant; it’s an event for both hotel guests and locals to enjoy. The modern American cuisine is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has a menu with daring and unexpected twists on traditional dishes. Now open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, Open Palette welcomes everyone who wish to explore its wares.
Moka Pot Is a coffeehouse where you may get a good start to your day with some freshly roasted beans. Get an authentic cup of Italian coffee to go or relax in the chic setting. Now open daily, Moka Pot serves breakfast and lunch from 6 AM to 12 PM.

Draft: A Sports Bar and Lounge
Formerly known as Draft Media Sports Bar, the new Draft Sports Bar and Lounge boasts a sleek, contemporary interior and an all-new, seasonal menu. Twelve local beers are on tap in this premium sports haven, in addition to specialty cocktails and delicious food. The 25 TVs in the high-energy lounge at Draft make it a great place to watch the game. Draft is available every day of the week between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 a.m.
Indulge in one-of-a-kind craft cocktails and small bites at this cosy cocktail lounge, opening in early February. Chat with “Chap,” the roadrunner mascot of The Parlor, who is usually in a good mood and ready to enjoy a drink with you. The Parlor will be open from 5:00 PM to 12:00 AM, every day of the week.
When it opens in early February, Open Market will be convenient for people who are always on the move. Visitors and locals alike can grab some quick food at the market, such as freshly made sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more. Each day, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., you can find the Open Market open for business.
The coffee shop, the sports bar (called Draft Sports Bar), the cocktail bar, and the grab-and-go spot all sound extremely generic, with the exception of Open Palette, which makes us wonder if the Sheraton actually knows that a palette is something an artist uses to paint with, and a palate is someone’s ability to appreciate or discern flavors.
No matter; the Sheraton is investing heavily in renovations to transform itself into what it calls an “urban downtown Dallas destination,” and it won’t be the only downtown Dallas hotel to do so.
