The Slickest New Dallas Speakeasies to Slip Into for a Clandestine Cocktail

A 'Singeasy' Karaoke Lounge, Secluded Rooms, and Secret Bar Worth the Journey to Grapevine

BY // 01.26.22

Everyone loves a good speakeasy. With the opening of so many hotels, restaurants, and bars in Dallas came an influx of elusive new spots to discover (in addition to our city’s longstanding affinity for hidden-away cocktail havens). From an old-fashioned escape in Grapevine to several secluded spots in the city, these are the best new speakeasies to seek out across Dallas.

Magnum Room

215 E. Dallas Road, Grapevine

Head to Grapevine’s Hotel Vin to find an old-fashioned speakeasy, complete with Prohibition-era libations and moody vibes. The cocktail list rotates seasonally, but current menu highlights include the Gold Fashioned, Carpe Diem (with gin and topped with rosemary lit on fire), and Magnum Margarita. The fun begins with a phone booth entrance where you must pick up the phone to be let in for your reservation. There is an intimate 18-seat set-up with cozy couches, artwork, and chandeliers. Private events can also be booked in the space. The speakeasy is open Friday through Saturday from 5 pm to 12 am.

 

La Mina-582A4646
Underneath the Drey Hotel at The Village Dallas, La Mina is a secret hideaway serving Mexican cuisine and cocktails.

La Mina

5630 Village Glen Drive

The new Village Dallas restaurant, La Mina, is designed to feel like a hideaway, but there’s an even more under-the-radar spot within this hidden gem. You’ll find the mezcal and tequila-focused bar by going past the bathrooms to a room that resembles a kitchen storage space. Just ask your server for the code and enter it by the refrigerator door.

1914 Greenville Avenue

Located right above Leela’s Wine Bar in Lower Greenville, this “hidden” bar was recently updated with a new look and name. Formerly ABV Establishment, the space has been revamped with red neon lighting and a new cocktail experience. You’ll find classic drinks, as well as the Diablo (tequila, ginger kombucha, lemon, and lime) and Crystal Rickey with coconut-washed white rum. If you’re with a group of four or more, you can try one of the large format cocktails like a Smoked Cherry Old Fashioned. The spot is open Wednesday through Saturday nights.
