The 100 Best Bars in Dallas 2024

Kessaku

Kessaku
Lauren Drewes Daniels
Fifty floors atop The National building in downtown sits Michelin-star chef Danny Grants’ cocktail and sushi den, Kessaku. To find it, take the elevators to Monarch on the 49th floor, but instead of going to the restaurant, take a left into a hallway and head upstairs. You’ll find a posh cocktail lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows delivering a stunning skyline view. Hip-hop music overhead is turned up, and when the place is packed, it’s loud. We can’t report much on the cocktails and sushi, other than they went down real easy; perhaps it’s asking too much to compete with this view and big boss energy. Valet is available and reservations are a must.
1401 Elm St., 50th Floor, Dallas, 75202
