i love Bolsa, but its patio, sandwiched between Davis St., a side street and a parking lot, isn't even the best in Oak Cliff. That honor has to go to Bar Belmont for just the view alone.
Best Patio - 2010
Readers' Choice: Lee Harvey's
Summers in Texas can be brutal, so patio-sittin? isn?t exactly a popular pastime in the hot months. That is, unless you?re a regular at Bolsa near Oak Cliff?s Bishop Arts District. Bolsa?s covered patio is an oasis with its huge fans, generous misters and adventurous cocktails. The ?Betty Draper,? a blend of Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream and Macallan scotch, is one of the menu?s most popular drinks, but if that?s too fancy for you, a cold Lone Star for $2.50 will hit the spot. On crowded nights, the patio?s limited space and picnic table seating will have you up close and personal with hipsters, young and old. But none of Bolsa?s regulars seem to mind?after all, Texas is the friendly state.
