The name of a new bar currently under construction across from American Airlines Center gets straight to the point: Happiest Hour.
Developer Harwood International touts it as the city's "largest patio bar and lounge," with two stories in an "industrial chic" theme that will include outdoor games like bocce ball, a rooftop patio, and 18 TVs for all your sports score-checking needs. (Hell, with that many TVs you can probably forego a visit to AAC altogether.)
A menu of sandwiches, smoked meats, and shared plates includes an homage to the legendary Bob Armstrong dip, kung pao cauliflower, gigantic beef ribs, and sausages from Snider Plaza institution Kuby's. Expect craft cocktails, eight wines on tap, and 50 draft beers.
Happiest Hour is slated to open this fall — presumably just in time to coincide with the start of a new NBA season — and will mark the sixth Harwood concept in Dallas behind Saint Ann, Mercat Bistro, Marie Gabrielle, coffee shop Magnolias Sous Le Pont, and recently opened bar The Grove at Harwood. They're all located in what the developer has dubbed the Harwood District (though most everyone else would probably just call it Uptown).
