Trick Pony is a side-hustle bar of Marlow MXM but has a completely different energy. While it can get rowdy on busy weekends, it often displays characteristics of a more mild-mannered middle child. While the interior design has a harsh industrial feel, the cocktails are anything but. As they like to say, this isn’t a one-trick pony; the theme here changes every few months, offering a buzzy tour of the world. Last summer, they were shaking up island-inspired drinks for a tiki lounge stint. They just finished a New York City tour with drinks like No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn and a You Can Kick It (yes, you can). Next up is Havana then Paris. But they always have a staycation menu of Dallas favorites, like the Don’t Be a Prick with vodka and prickly pear, rhubarb, watermelon lime and mint. For a more intimate experience, ask a bartender if Pony Tail is available, a separate four-seat bar in the back with a dedicated bar and server.
