City Tavern

Copy Link
This downtown drinking staple hardly ever closes, and Christmas is no exception. A Dirty Dusty (a shot of Jack and a PBR chaser) will quell all thoughts of the ugly socks your aunt bought you.

Double Wide

Copy Link
Stop in between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. for a Yoohoo Yeehaw. There's also a winter-appropriate hot version called the Thin Mint that's spiked with Rumplemintz and whipped cream.

Meddlesome Moth

Copy Link
This Design District gastropub will open at 5 p.m. to serve all of their gazillion or so craft beers on tap.

The Old Monk

Copy Link
This Henderson Avenue standby opens at 8 p.m. The kitchen will also be open until midnight; Santa would approve of the pistachio-crusted chicken strips.

Ships Lounge

Copy Link
Ships Lounge will be open on Christmas Day as usual — bright and early at 10 a.m., in case you for some reason need to drink before you open presents.

Windmill Lounge

Copy Link
The Windmill's awesome cocktails and great jukebox make for a very merry Christmas indeed. The bar will also host a curry pop-up by Lucia sous chef Justin Holt starting at 10 p.m. with free food for all you heathens.

The Blind Butcher

Copy Link
Blind Butcher opens at 7 p.m. on Christmas, but the kitchen will be closed — so you'll have to wait till Friday to get your sausage and poutine fix.

Green Door Public House

Copy Link
This farmers market bar from the Uncle Uber's owners will be open 5 p.m.-2 a.m., whether you're craving a local craft beer on tap or something a little fancier, like a sloe gin fizz or a Moscow Mule.

Lakewood Landing

Copy Link
The delightfully dark and divey Lakewood standby will open at 8 p.m. on Christmas to pour you a very stiff drink.

The Rustic

Copy Link
The Uptown hangout will be open 6 p.m. to midnight serving up $3 bottles of PBR, plus tamales and tequila.

Single Wide

Ten Bells Tavern

Copy Link
The laid-back Oak Cliff pub opens at 6 p.m. for all your beer-drinking and/or vodka-swilling needs. (The kitchen will be closed, however.)

Truck Yard

Copy Link
The Christmas forecast says 60 and sunny — sounds like ideal weather to hit up this backyard hangout, which opens for biz at 5 p.m.
