Best Happy Hour - 2012
The age of the three-martini lunch went the way of Lehman Bros., but the downtown Dallas mixology titan, The Chesterfield, has made a way for you to get totally sloshed before noon on a workday without the guilt. Every weekday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., The Chesterfield offers a menu of $1 cocktails that includes a vanilla old fashioned, a basil gimlet, a raspberry Collins, the margarita-like Buena Suerte and the Ward Eight. The only catch is you have to order food, which will unfortunately slow the alcohol-to-bloodstream speed. The best thing you can get at The Chesterfield's lunch happy hour, besides a rock solid buzz, is the advice on the bottom of the menu: "Don't tell your boss you were here."
