2721 Main St, Dallas TX
Dallas, TX 75226
This Deep Ellum newcomer makes use of its coffee shop-meets-bar theme by pushing the combination of coffee and Bourbon, both hot and cold. The Shakerito, made with cold brew from Cultivar Coffee, provides a sharp and tangy contrast, while the Irish coffee aims for the sweeter, more mellow end of the spectrum with espresso, sugar, and steamed milk.

6. Proof + Pantry

1722 Routh St Ste 102
Dallas, TX 75201
Proof + Pantry’s stance on the Irish coffee is that it’s a classic that doesn’t need to be altered. The recipe you’ll find here is direct from the drink’s point of origin, The Buena Vista Bar in San Francisco, meaning Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, raw sugar, French-pressed beans from Novel Coffee Roasters and a semi-whipped heavy cream.

2907 State St
Dallas, TX 75204
(315) 383-5554
State Street Coffee is a small, minimally-manned coffee bar located inside of The Alcove in Uptown, but its presence shouldn’t be overlooked. Because of its connections to The Alcove, State Street offers an espresso and Guinness combination that is a must-try. The fusion of the hot espresso and the frosty stout brings out the coffee essence of the Guinness, while amplifying the flavors of the coffee.

The People’s Last Stand serves a bolder version of the Irish coffee called the Black Irish, made with cold brew, Irish fire cinnamon vodka, Godiva dark chocolate, espresso grinds and Bailey’s Vanilla Cinnamon. The menu also features a drink called the Campfire Old Fashioned, which combines hickory mesquite and coffee-infused Johnnie Walker Red, marshmallows, maple and chocolate bitters.

For a Spanish inspired take on the coffee cocktail, head to this Bishop Arts bookstore. There are a few boozy coffee drinks on offer here, most notably the Carajillo. This blend of coffee and brandy is super sophisticated and the perfect pairing for that post-modern novel you're pretending to read.
