Park Tavern (closed)
Park Tavern is a monument to barley and hops. The lofty, brick-filled space at the Shops at Park Lane has 40 or so beers on tap, including lots of local brews, such as Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Rahr & Sons, St. Arnold and Real Ale. If beer isn’t your thing, bartenders boast cocktail-making skills that stretch beyond your standard G&T. Bar food here is more fancy than functional, including octopus a la plancha, shrimp and grits, and street vendor tacos. Happy hour is jamming with the post-work crowd.
