Art is relative and often dependent on the viewer's vantage point. So why not start a night when you plan to paint the town red with a gorgeous view and a great cocktail?

The Canvas Hotel, formerly the NYLO Dallas South Side, offers one of the best bar views in Dallas, and some great cocktails to enhance said view. One of their new signature cocktails, the Painted Pisco, is their slant on a Pisco Sour. Replacing the grape brandy commonly made in Peru with a local gin, they have a curated Dallas experience primed for you.

The light, citrusy cocktail with the added richness from the shaken egg white and the perfect rooftop setting at sunset will make the perfect start to any night.

The Painted Pisco is available at the Canvas Gallery Rooftop Lounge and the Chef’s Palette restaurant downstairs.

Painted Pisco ($16): Zephyr Gin, simple syrup, fresh lime, egg white, Angostura bitters

Canvas Hotel, 1325 S. Lamar St. (The Cedars)

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
