The Standard Pour
Dallas, TX 75204
Dallas Observer's Description
With the craft cocktail and mixology trend on full tilt in Dallas, Standard Pour takes the scene to the Uptown set. Located on the corner of McKinney Avenue and Allen Street, the bar invites an attractive mix of young patrons to sample a good selection of well made pre-Prohibition era cocktails. Pinpointing any one inspiration for the decor is difficult, as one section of the wall is covered with clocks set to various time zones. Other parts of the room nod to 19th-century France while the tall brick wall, lined with shelves stocked with a wide variety of booze, conjures nights spent at New York bars.

Please be patient with your barmen, "with great preparation, comes a great libation"
This uptown spot is a breath of fresh air on McKinney Ave. Sip a Life & Death, champagne spiked with Aperol and absinthe, or try a shot of Dude, Sweet Chocolate-infused Rumpleminze.
