Best Summer Pools for Drinking in Dallas

Best Summer Pools for Drinking in Dallas

In a city that gets as hot as Dallas, it’s cruel that our region is so short on easily accessible swimming holes. Almost equally as cruel: the proliferation of fancy hotel swimming pools, often with rooftop views and killer cocktails, that cater only to hotel guests.

Sipping a well-made drink poolside used to be an endeavor enjoyed almost exclusively by the Dallas elite or anyone willing to brave a crowded apartment complex pool. This year, that seems to be changing, with poolside events that allow people who aren’t hotel guests to sip cocktails by some of the city’s chicest pools. Take a look at some of the best pools to cool off in this summer. Photos by Brian Maschino, Hannah Ridings, Roderick Pullum
