Urban Union

Wine and dine like the locals

Not far from the Entertainment District, you can find Urban Union – a local hotspot overflowing with delicious eats, craft drinks and local adventures. Walk around these converted industrial buildings for a night out or stop by before the game.

For fresh sandwiches and savory soups, The Hive is your go-to for lunch. Follow your sweet tooth next door to Sugar Bee Sweets. Calories don’t count when they’re covered in frosting! (The bakery was even featured on Food Network’s Dallas Cakes.) Just steps away, get hearty meals like a Smoked Brisket Grilled Cheese and Chips & Smoked Gouda Queso at The Tipsy Oak. Their specialty cocktails have a fun twist on classics like the TX Mule and Texas Whiskey Rita. Every day is Taco Tuesday at Cartel Taco Bar. Their hand-crafted tacos are the perfect solution to your taco cravings. 

Quench your thirst

If you want a good drink, Legal Draft and 4 Kahunas Tiki Lounge both have you covered. For craft brew enthusiasts, Legal Draft has something for every palate. Get a flight of beers and try everything from a traditional stout with a chocolate twist to citrusy lagers. TIP: Ask about any seasonal flavors. Fall Guy is a popular autumn brew. If you want to be whisked away with beach vibes and tiki huts, walk over to 4 Kahunas Tiki Lounge. This cozy spot uses the freshest juices and fruits, and each drink is made to order. Food Network named the tropical spot one of the “Best Tiki Bars in America,” and we have to agree.

Instagram worthy adventures

For Instagram-worthy outings, try your hand at charcuterie board making, axe throwing and DIY decorating. Book a Charcuterie Board Party at Inspirations Catering and be the star of your own Food Network show – move over Bobby Flay. If you have good aim or just want to feel like a total bad axe, Lone Star Axe Throwing will do the trick. Bring in food from a restaurant nearby, and test your arm – no worries, their trainers will show you the ropes. Need more outing ideas? Become a DIY master and Board & Brush Creative Studio. All you need to bring is your creativity and they’ll show you how to distress, sand and stain your piece to personal perfection.
