Cool River Cafe

1045 Hidden Ridge Road Irving, TX 75038 | Irving & Las Colinas | 972-871-8881

Location Description:

Las Colinas is known as a part of town where business happens. Top executives from all over the country travel to this section of North Irving to buy, sell, merge and do all sorts of other businessy things. And when the day is done, many of these tycoons can be found seated at the richly appointed wood bar at Cool River Cafe. But you don't have to be fluent in business jargon to earn a seat at the bar. Folks from the surrounding North MacArthur neighborhoods fill Cool River Cafe as well, drawn to its wide selection of beers and delicious food. A massive screen lines a far wall, eliminating any trace of a bad seat in the house, and the scotch and cognac menu invites you to flex your wallet muscles, no matter how big or small.
