Dallas Observer's Description

Owned by the gentlemen who brought you South Dallas' swanky retro bar Cedars Social (a secret agent-themed upscale bar and restaurant), Smyth is a lush cocktail bar with a permeating '70s vibe. Trained servers do not simply take your orders at Smyth — they seat you in one of the eight exclusive booths, which require calling ahead to reserve, and then ask you your tastes in flavors and spirits, information they use to concoct a customized, hand-crafted cocktail. Some cocktails even include a "wisp of match smoke" over the tops of them, for added aroma and flavor. If you're looking to impress someone, take them to Smyth. Just be sure you can find the entrance, since it's a hidden door on the side of the building.

    This is easily the best bar in the DFW area... Aside from them not having any food. Best, most consistent drinks without question. Super cool and laid back atmosphere.

    Make a reservation on OpenTable under "The Establishment"

  • Dallas Observer on 09/17/13

    The reservations-only bar feels like an old-school speakeasy, with dimly lit corner tables, a retro soundtrack and a tuxedoed maƮtre d' welcoming every guest.

  • Alexander M. on 08/10/13

    Great idea poorly executed...

  • Jason T. on 08/10/13

    Love this place. Amazing drinks. Make a reservation ahead of time.

  • Scott E. on 08/17/13

    Waited 35 minutes for replacement drinks and staff was rude and combative...cool place, but not sure about the service. They have a wait list so I guess it doesn't matter what I think.
