Dallasites love a good patio, and now they have an even bigger and better one to add to their rotation. Happiest Hour, the latest concept from Harwood International, is a two-deck restaurant and bar with 12,000 square feet, including a rooftop patio on the second level showcasing the best views of the Dallas skyline from the district of HARWOOD.

“The industrial chic setting paired with unparalleled service in this premier location will give guests a unique experience in Dallas’ largest patio bar and lounge,” says Bruno Roulleux, director of operations, Harwood Hospitality Group. To see what all the fuss is about, watch the video, which takes you inside this just-opened hot spot.

But the patio isn’t Happiest Hour’s only asset. The menu features mindfully prepared dishes made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Signature dishes include Kuby’s sausages; the Dino Rib, a 12-hour smoked cross-cut beef rib; a crudité platter with seasonal vegetables, hummus, and ranch dressing; and the Whistle Stop Sandwich with fried green tomatoes, mozzarella, and sweet pickle marmalade on brioche bread.

To wash it all down are thoughtfully crafted artisan cocktails and an international selection of eight wines on tap and more than 50 beers on tap. Oh, and 17 screens throughout the patio bar ensure a view of the game from any seat.

Happiest Hour has opened in time for the TX-OU game, and the rivalry weekend starts off right on Friday, October 9, with specialty shots and spins from 10 pm-2 am by DJ Inzo.

Doors open at 9:30 am on Saturday, October 10, and Happiest Hour hosts eight hours of live music from three performers. Naturally you can watch the big game from all angles as you sip on one of the weekend’s featured craft cocktails, the Longhorn Libation or the Sooner Than Later. Until 6 pm, Happiest Hour will also knock $1 off cans of Miller Lite, Bud Light, Coors Light, and Michelob Ultra.

With a convenient location across from the American Airlines Center, Happiest Hour is the new go-to destination before or after a game or show. It is part of the Harwood Hospitality Group, now housing six restaurant brands within the district of HARWOOD, including Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar, Mercat Bistro, Magnolias: Sous Le Pont, and The Grove at Harwood.

Harwood Hospitality is currently working on two more restaurant concepts this fall.
