  • Best of Big D: Best Classic Cocktails (2018)
  • Best New Bars (2017)


Walking into this bar is like walking into a friend’s living room. Except your friend has excellent taste in vintage décor, an impressive record collection, and a fully-stocked bar. This Deep Ellum cocktail oasis was conceived during a trip to Paris. Romantic, right? Several Bloody Marys at Harry’s New York Bar is what ultimately led to the vision for Shoals. The owners even replicated the Parisian bar’s recipe. They only serve the classics here, which is part of the draw. Sip a perfectly crafted Tom Collins or a Sidecar.
