Best Patio - 2012
It's one thing when a bar has a nice patio, but Oak Cliff's The Foundry has a massive patio. The sprawling yard is enclosed on one side by several boxcars filled with comfortable chairs and tables. On one end is the coolest-looking stage in Dallas (constructed of more than 600 wood pallets), and next to it is a building that houses the bar. Even that feels like it's outdoors thanks to massive garage doors that remain open during business hours. And if patrons get hungry, Chicken Scratch is on one end of the campus. It's a kid-friendly, pet-friendly bar with plenty of space for everyone.
