Cool down and drink up this summer at these 5 swanky Dallas pools
Why not beat the heat in style?
DALLAS It's summertime in Dallas, and that means two things: pools and drinks. Here are five suggestions of swanky Dallas pools where sipping and swimming is not only allowed, but encouraged.
Sisu - Billed as an "Uptown resort," Sisu calls a restored historic home on Maple Avenue its stomping grounds. The venue is described by our own Mr. Dallas as an “urban playground,” with restaurant and patio and a cabana club that features a saltwater pool. Sisu features drinks like the Sisu Rita, Cucumber Smash, and a Detox-Tini.
Ku De Ta - Even though Ross Avenue oasis Ku De Ta requires membership, the venue is open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays after 9 p.m. According to Ku's website, memberships are awarded based on referrals and are not for sale. Exclusive much? Ku De Ta's cocktail list is home to such drinks as the Kudeta Margarita and features bottle service.
SODA Bar - With exceptional views of Downtown Dallas, NYLO South Side's SODA Bar is the moment's go-to sundown destination. Better yet, the SODA Bar's main feature is a chic pool where patrons sipping on cocktails can cool off by the water. Soda Bar's menu features speciality cocktails such as the Rum Roller, Salty Kiss, and the French 75.
W Hotel - Even though the hotel's pool area is usually restricted to just residents and hotel guests only, the pool does open to the public for certain special events like Sunday Fundaze and Wine Down on the WET Deck. If you happen to venture to the W's pool during some of its public events, the hotel's website describes its collection of cocktails as "colorful." Enticing, yes?
OMNI Dallas - With a heated infinity pool, a full service bar, and stellar view of Downtown Dallas, the Uptown Terrace at the Omni Dallas is a major perk for hotel guests. The aforementioned full service bar makes obtaining a cocktail easy at the expansive deck at the Omni Dallas.
